“It is the most wonderful place you can imagine. It’s so beautiful there. It’s ridiculous. . . . And then I have this mountain. A flat top mountain that slopes off to each side. A blue mountain. It’s my private mountain. It belongs to me. God told me if I painted it enough, I could have it.” ~ Georgia O’Keeffe on central New Mexico and Cerro Pedernal (aka Pedernal Mountain, literally translated Flint Hill)
And two of many of O’Keeffe’s paintings of her mountain . . .
