M.L.Coleman is my painting partner on most of my visits to Arizona. We usually live pretty high off the hog when he’s with me because we camp out and chow down in his 23-foot LAZY DAZE recreation vehicle most of the time. Mike spent most of his time this year bedded down with the flu so I spent most of my outdoor painting time alone. I’m used to making location decisions as a team effort. In fact most of my outdoor painting time is a social exercise for me. It is similar to the feeling I had when I golfed earlier in my life. In each case I looked forward most to sharing the joy and laughter with others who had the same love for the activity as I.
