Georgia O'Keeffe's Ghost Ranch, New Mexico

Ghost Ranch, once the home of artist Georgia O'Keefe, is located behind the pinon trees.

O'Keefe would climb the ladder to sleep on the roof.

Georgia O'Keeffe is an artist who has been much admired by my family over the years. We became aware of her simple and striking work through my uncle who resides in New Mexico, USA.
Sixty miles northwest of Santa Fe is a simple adobe structure called 'Ghost Ranch' , which was O'Keeffe first home in New Mexico. She lived and worked here every summer and fall for the last 40 years of her life. O'Keeffe continued her strong minimalist aesthetic in Ghost Ranch with austere rooms, functional furniture and careful arrangements of found objects.
