January or February 1980s
There is a mountain range you cannot see behind the trees in the background.
In the almost 60 years I've lived in Phoenix, it has snowed twice that I can remember. I'm not counting the few other times where there was a very light flurry that melted as soon as it hit the ground. I'm talking about when we actually got about an inch or two of snow and it stayed several hours. This is a very rare occasion. Everyone usually goes nuts running outside, taking pictures or just standing there with their arms outstretched and mouth open.
The swimming pool below was not frozen at all and the water was warmer than the snow because I think we were heating it at the time. I'm not sure of the exact date of these two photos, sometime in the 1980s, and I do remember it snowing on Valentine's Day one year, also in the 80s. That was during the evening, however, while I was driving somewhere. I couldn't believe all the cars pulling into parking lots and people getting out of their cars to watch the snow.
Merry Christmas from me:
Self portrait on 15 ft scroll done with black felt tip marker, 2006
Detail of tree, bird and box of chocolates on scroll
The above scroll could be 60 to 100 feet long, I'm not sure, because I've never unrolled the entire thing. It is a five foot tall roll of butcher paper, used to wrap meat. Not sure how I got it. I will not continue drawing on it with felt tip marker because it bleeds through the paper. I must find another type of pen or marker that won't do that. But then, what the heck will I do with a 100 foot long scroll of drawings?

May you all be blessed with health, happiness, peace, love and serenity.
A very peaceful scene on the way up north one year.
