Sonoran Scenery

Tucson cacti

Tucson cacti say hello

I recently got back from a trip to Arizona where I checked out Phoenix (good tacos), Sedona (amazing rocks) and Tucson (cacti everywhere). Of the three, I liked Tucson the best. They say Tucson is the "Austin of Arizona" and I can see why. It's a mid-sized university town, relatively progressive, and sunny most of the time. Even with the sun, the Sonoran desert is surprisingly green. I enjoyed taking photos and sketching the diverse plant and animal life there.

I've been slowly chipping away at the art. It's been more challenging than I anticipated to create complex art pieces. But I'm figuring it out and I feel that I'm on the right path. I have a few pieces in the works that I hope to have done by early next year.
