|Jerome State Historic Park
|At the Douglas Mansion
|This view of the Douglas Mansion I drew
years before the installation of my drawings
in etched metal. The hole in the near right is a
cave-in. The next batch below is a series
commissioned by Arizona State Parks. I am
inordinately proud of the series and of my
first major public installation..

this every day when the sun was at just the right
angle to cast slantwise light to enhance each detail.

Their freestanding plates are situated near where I sat to draw them, around the whole perimeter.
Mingus (in background) is the mountain that contains Cleopatra Hill which holds Jerome. The mining
shot has the old redwood headframe in the foreground with the new one behind it. The huge
building high on Cleopatra was the Montana, which burned down in the 20's. The Project included
"rebuilding" it where it sat. One sees part of the mine pit between the Montana and the Little Daisy.

Rim, Clarkdale, the smelter and slag pile, the Verde

|The next six drawings are done live from pieces of mining equipment on display at the
Douglas Mansion plus how the equipment was used from historic photographs.

this view framing uptown
Jerome in a pair of
headframes. The one at
