Northwestern New Mexico drew Georgia O’Keefe to paint the geological wonders shaped by wind, water, and the earth’s natural colors.  Her landscapes captured the hills, mountains and cliffs near her Ghost Ranch, Abiquiu, Chama River Valley, Alcalde, Tierra Azul and beyond.  She began painting these landscapes in the 1930’s and 1940’s and continued for nearly half a century.  The scenery looks much the same today as it did when O’Keefe began capturing it with her paint brushes.
