If you haven't been downtown lately you are missing a lot of really fun artwork! As part of a community effort between the Tucson Arts Brigade's Mural Arts Project and local artists, many beautiful murals are delighting visitors. This one by Jessica Gonzales is just off Congress on the Wig-O-Rama building. There are monsoon clouds in there and a lasso, too. FUN!
I'm a transplanted New Yorker who loves the Tucson climate. On New Year's Day I have a bit of fun calling my (snowbound) east coast friends to announce that I'm drinking coffee while sitting on my patio. (:
