Have you ever been out there? It's such incredible country and you see where she got a lot of her inspiration.

No, but I'm thinking...roadtrip. said...

I JUST started reading your blog (linked through decorno) and I'm loving it. I have loved Georgia O'Keefe since I was a little girl and still do. These photos are amazing. I think I saw some of them at the Georgia O'Keefe museum in Santa Fe. The museum has been a tad underwhelming my two visits, but Santa Fe is beautiful. If you go, make sure to hang out in the plaza and eat just about everywhere. But also get up into the mountains a little bit. The quiet is amazing there. I always come away renewed.

RDR - thanks for stopping by. Glad to see you were open minded about the masks — they did look fantastic.

HOBAC said...

L - glad you like it. You make Santa Fe sound very appealing - I am so bored with Europe.

Lauren said...

Having never been to Europe hearing someone tire of it sounds.... well, funny.

There's a crazy worldly feeling in Santa Fe. If you stop just enjoying yourself and pay attention to the tourists (which, unfortunately, the numbers can be out of control at high times of year) you'll hear languages from all over. I always catch a lot of German (maybe because I can understand it a little), but I'm astounded by how far people travel.

I am so curious what draws people to Santa Fe as it's not easy to get to (closest major airport is about an hour, and it's far from major) and is fairly small. I just wonder what destinations are must sees for US travel. I always assume it's major cities. I'm happily wrong.

She was, and remains, sublime.
I loved her clear palette of a house.

I hope this won't appear as shameless self promotion, but I had come across this photo of O'Keefe just the day before and posted it. It was taken during her Lake George incarnation with long time paramour Alfred Steiglitz.

Younger and vivacious, I think it captures her in a way rarely seen.
