Last weekend artist Ramon Kelley had a studio party. I attended.
The party was informal and fun. The best part for me was to see a lady write several checks and not flinch. I had the chance to ask her if pen had cooled off?
The lady laughed and said yes , she also told me she was a friend of Ramon and his sons, by the way they are fine artists also.Ramon Kelley is a brand name artist in these parts and that has made him recession proof. He continues to build a collector base and has done so over the many years I have known him. I do have some examples of his work on my walls. Each time I look at them , I think of my own way to continue being recession proof too.
