The red orange sandstone cliffs always stimulated a large number of artists for a “paint out.” The drive was over a hundred miles; so we started out before sunrise from Albuquerque. The stone pillars, spires and cliffs were best lighted before ten a.m. or for those that stayed, at sunset. In between were the hours for wandering, hiking and photographing the eroded formations. Upon arrival everyone is truly focused on artwork, but as the day progresses the attention is dispersed on other things, mainly each other. Most artists innately apply their artistic combining and composition skills on someone they find attractive and began the relationship sketch, blocking out the person into a corner and then beginning the detail work of seduction, both humorous and serious. Soon there is a shirt on top of a rock, as a notice, there is something going on behind the rock.
