When I met up with Arthur and Roger in New Mexico the first thing we did was go up to the vistas to paint the changing colors... It was just starting to turn and we found the best vantage point for the three of us to paint from. Unremarkably there were many others with the same idea of going up to see the aspens. But remarkably we made front page news in the local paper, undoubtedly a slow news day. The photographer's image was actually more interesting than my feeble first painting in New Mexico.
