Painting at Ghost Ranch

I really enjoy the boldness and the subtle abstraction of Georgia O'Keeffe's paintings. So, it was a special delight to visit the landscapes in which she spend much of her life drawing and painting. What delight it was to sit at Ghost Ranch and be able to clearly identify the bluffs that appear in O'Keeffe's paintings and in driving down the highway to see the cloudscapes that were frequently abstracted in her work. It was a pleasure to sit and make this painting in the place that inspired O'Keeffe. It was a challenge to paint a terrain which is unfamiliar to me and a delight to take in the richness of the colors of the place.
Pin It!
