It never ceases to amaze me when..

Old contacts from way back when come through and give you new opportunities. The Ramsey House Gallery in Cimarron, NM just called me. Ethel Ramsey, the owner and I go back 20 years. She owned the Cimarron Art Gallery which is where I met the girl who is now my ex-wife. Many an afternoon was spent sitting in the gallery, eating a banana split (there was an old time soda fountain there) and listening to her and her 95 year old mother tell tales of old times. A few years back, she sold the Art Gallery and bought another building to make an artisit's studio in.She's a very fine painter. I think she mostly played around with it in between her and her husband travelling. Her husband died two years ago and I think she's finally recovering from that because she called today and wants me to put in a bunch of my artwork on consignment. She's going to take a 30% Commission which isn't really all that bad. Anyone who is an artist knows the commissions from galleries can be a lot more than that sometimes. So I'm going to put in some jewelry, some block prints and some photography.

Cimarron is a little small town in the middle of nowhere, northern NM. But in the summer the population swells with tourists and the families of Boy Scouts attending nearby Philmont Scout Ranch where I used to work in the summer. And her gallery is in a prime location, right in the middle of everything. It was great to make contact with her again and great to get this opportunity.

You never know where a friendship might lead.

Peace,

Wander
