I discovered a three ring binder that had ‘copies’ of many of the pen and ink works that I produced for an art show at De Grazia Little Gallery in January 1997. It was a shared show with stone sculptress Adele deSimone of Manhattan, that was titled ‘Metaphors In Stone’. I contributed about 60 small 5 × 8 inch pen, ink and illustrator marker drawings on index cards of the Boulders of the Dragoon Mountains. Adele had eighteen small to large contemporary stone sculptures in marble, limestone, and granite.

The show ran for two weeks and attendance was good and we each sold some of our works. I subtitled much of my work ‘The Pornographic Boulders of the Dragoon Mountains’; so as you peruse this portfolio allow your imaginations to run.

There’s about fifty pieces that I’ve scanned in from colored copies I made before the show. Many I’ve not seen since then because they’ve been lost and forgotten at the bottom of a file box. I’ll load a few each day when I do load new work and attempt to show the variety of the work.

This work is primarily pen and ink with illustrator marker on the background rock. The middle Boulder is about four feet high… I’m aware the scale and size of these can be difficult to ascertain, yet that was actually part of my fascination and decision to draw a small card stock at the time.

    This is fascinating and beautiful!!!

  • Robin, AND this is why I was glad to find these old drawings… so I’d have something interesting to load… and hear from my favorite RB folks… YOU!
    AND YES, I found these boulders and my various renditions ‘fascinating and beautiful’, too. I no longer remember how much time I spent out in the Dragoon mountains, climbing around and watching the boulders. I do remember sitting and being engrossed with a ‘bolder’ boulder composition… and then the sun would move (as it does, duh;-)… and the change in shadows would make a whole new ‘work of art’!
    So I’ll be adding more of my BOULDER interpretations over the coming weeks… and look forward to more contact with you… thanks!!!
