We've had some rain here in Phoenix, last night and again today. The sun just now began to peek out from behind the clouds (at 6:30 pm), and I looked north out of my kitchen window at Camelback Mountain.
Would you ever expect to see this sight in the middle of a desert? Fog-after-rain hanging around the top of a mountain? When I saw this, it reminded me once again that, no matter what seemingly impossible thing I draw or paint, Nature is---always---even more imaginative and creative an artist than I am. Humbling, and freeing.
