Our group of painters loves the southwest drove down to Ghost Ranch to experience what drew Georgia OKeefe here firsthand. As we drove south the mountains were We left Taos via the Rio Grande Gorge. We knew we’d go back to paint it, but this day we kept driving to Abiquiu.
Ghost Ranch offers workshops and retreats, horseback riding and more. We set up our easels on the front lawn until after lunch when the winds blew too hard. Ghost Ranch offers several types of tours. We took a tour that showed us places that Georgia OKeefe enjoyed painting and took us by her house. Our guide had prints of Georgia’s work and held them up in front of the various rock formations that Georgia had painted. It was startling to see OKeefe’s take on how to simplify the landscape down to its essence.
