The moon was rising over Mingus while I worked. I think somehow it found its way to the paper. That was not a conscious decision. I just felt it needed some brightness.

While editing, I thought to tone down the Tawny. The pink. Does it look pink to you too? Tawny is listed as a light brown to brownish-orange color. This is the mid-value of the color. You may not notice a difference. But I’d be curious to know which you prefer.

I am not sure this next one is finished. It needs something. I will continue with it. Suggestions are always welcome.

I am laughing at myself. I got all excited about the snow. Little did I know a blizzard was on the way. The beautiful scene above is from two days after the storm. It may not have been a blizzard officially, but we were asked to stay off the roads for about 24 hours. We had a good solid day of heavy, blowing snow. It was AWESOME!

My window was covered in a layer of ice.

I’m sure this is the most snow we have had in the 5 years we have lived here. Scottsdale and Phoenix even had a dusting! Wowzers! By the second day, roads were dry and clear in our area.

We had more snow today, briefly. Then the sun came out and the cleared a bit. There was a roll of clouds hovering over Mingus. Then it spread out and moved forward, closer to us. I looked again, and it had collapsed, and was in the original hovering position.

I increased the vibrancy on this photo, but the clouds really were blindingly orange. It has been a BeAuTiFuL week in Arizona! Amen!

Silently, like thoughts that come and go,
the snowflakes fall, each one a gem.

For Day 9, a small barrel cactus. I love the round form of this cactus. A little thorny ball. They are pretty when you see them in groupings. Some look yellow because they have so many thorns.

I used Master’s Touch regular watercolor paper. I think the paper texture is less noticeable with this than it is on the premium paper. In the close-up, you can just barely see a horizontal pattern. More noticeable is the vertical texture. It is very visible in person, on the darker colors. But I don’t mind it.
