Pictures from Phoenix and sometimes from the surrounding cities that make up the "Valley of the Sun"

Yesterday I showed you two works from a wonderful exhibit I saw at the Heard Museum by the artist Rose B Simpson. Today I show you a work by her mother, Roxanne Swentzell. The title of this piece, “Self Portrait” takes on a whole new meaning when you see the figure holding a mirror with her toes while drawing on a sketch pad. She is truly creating a self-portrait.
In the small photo you can see the sketch pad and drawing. This is such a clever piece of artistry that I just had to share it with you. I apologize for the quality of the photos. I had to take them through the Plexiglas case that surrounded the subject.
