3 images from our visit to Ghost Ranch. A pencil rendering of one of O'Keeffe's most enduring images, and 2 watercolor landscape attempts. All 3 on watercolor paper. I had always wanted to see what Georgia O'Keeffe saw and painted. I fell in love with the landscape as she had. I am not a good enough artist to depict what I saw but I loved being there and was inspired by it.


We went to an art store while in Santa Fe (of course, we did!) and I bought 6 half pans of WN watercolor paints that reflected the colors of NM. They didn't fit in my travel paintbox so I made a little paint kit out of a cardboard match box. I used the paints that way for the rest of the trip. When I got home I transferred the half pans to a small mint box.
