Pilgrimage to Abiquiu, home of Georgia O'Keeffe

I finally made the journey to the home of Georgia O'Keeffe, after many years of unrealized intentions to do so. Wow, what a moving and beautiful experience. Photography was not permitted in or around her home, but I did photograph some of the surrounding landscape that she made so famous. Here I have placed photos of her paintings alongside photos of her home I found online, and with my photos of the landscape. Okeefe grooming Chows

O'Keeffe's courtyard, where she was sitting when grooming the Chows. This would have been her view if she looked up.


The Pedernal mountain both as O'Keeffe painting  and a photo I took.

Red rocks near Ghost Ranch, the dude ranch where she first stayed in the area before purchasing the home at Abiquiu (which took ten years of negociations!)
