Georgia O’Keeffe’s Abiquiu Home and Studio

Come with us, far from politics and disasters and overweening technology — back to timeless New Mexico, and Georgia O’Keeffe’s Abiquiu refuge.  She carried this ‘rack’ of antlers home from a desert walk.  Devoted helpers mounted it.  No more appropriate welcome to her home and studio exists than the abstract simplicity of this doorway, and its iconic crest.

  1. Penelope, I am thrilled that you share this pilgrimage (during your writing residence in Taos), with Jeanette, Janet and me. Of course, you are an Intrepid — the Original Intrepid, come to think of it! Thank you to you and Eric for countless courageous expeditions when you lived nearby, and treasured ones in Oregon. Blessings, c

  3. Joy, thanks for commenting. I think there is no one’s home, visiting which matters more to me on the spot and ever since, than Georgia’s. Possibly Eleanor’s Val Kill — where friends and I return almost yearly — but Abiquiu ‘knocked our socks off’ and leaves us reverberant. Love and light, c

    • I really appreciate your commenting. Georgia, somehow, the Intrepids have taken into our beings. We are enlarged by having been there. And our sense of time and of urgencies is altered for the better. Georgia really had her priorities straight! Reading her biographies has been a rich pleasure, as well. But standing where she worked, seeing what she saw — we are still in awe. Gratefully, Carolyn
