Once I discovered the incredible boulders of the Dragoon Mountains in Southeastern Arizona I kept returning with my camera and sketch book. With hundred of images I further figured out how the personalities of the boulders and compositions are constantly changing with the light and shadows. My favorite activity is to walk among these amazing shapes and compositions, find a perch and begin to sketch. An endlessly rewarding experience.
The light shifted and suggested a heart on this upper balancing boulder, thus my name “Valentine Rock”. I have crawled up to the base of that rock several times, amazed at the mere six inch point of contact between the massive upper rock and its lower partner.
In preparing this version I loaded into Photoshop and formatted it for a RB card, as well as added the bit of RED to the heart shape.
Who knows, maybe some honest lover will buy and send his valentine this card, knowing full well love is always ‘in the balance!’ ; – ))
I usually sketch in books by Canson, 65lb. 5.5″×8.5″ Universal Recycled, acid free paper. The small size encourages me to be quick and have fun with the huge choice of subjects. Sketching like I do is always an experiment.
In 2013 I’m taking my RB art collection into Photoshop and making adjustments as well as loading onto the full current range of RB products. I trust you’ll enjoy the little upgrades! ;-)))
STICKERS R FUN
