12″x9″ pastel on sanded board

This is the view from Georgia O’Keefe’s home at Ghost Ranch. It is a spectacular presentation of the Painted Desert.

I had an amazing trail ride where I wove in and out of these beautiful hills. The light and landforms were spectacular. I feel like I needed all the texture in this painting to capture what I experienced.

  1. Great painting, Frozen Dawn. I didn’t know you liked to ride! I had my first ride in 15 years last summer…about killed me.

  2. Drinking it all in –
    the landscape
    your rendering
    the trail
    you
    that horse.

    Appreciate what it is for this moment,
    and for the memories it invites!!

    Thanks, Julie!
