Apples for the Chimps

The Apple and Cherry Place

6x6in oil on canvas board   85.

Some good friends own Nichols Ranch and Orchards in beautiful Cottonwood Canyon near  La Luz, N.M. This painting is of the building where fruit is sorted and sold.
Set up high on the side of canyon they enjoy spectacular views of White Sands National Monument and Missile Range. Sue Nichols is a fabulous painter and stained glass artist when she finds time in her busy life

One of the interesting facts about the Nichols Ranch is they have been providing apples for the Chimps at Alamagordo, N.M. for 28 years. There is an amazing story about the chimps and what they suffered under a man called Coulston, for anyone with a strong stomach who wants to to read about it... But there is a  Happy Ending.
