Can we get a free slice of funfetti cake and the singing staff from Olive Garden up in here?! 

Because today we're celebrating desert-painting legend, Georgia O'Keeffe's birthday!

If you've ever wondered why we call ourselves GhostRanch, you might be interested to know that Ghost Ranch, New Mexico was O'Keeffe's home and source of inspiration for many years. With an innovative and atypical approach to everything she did (ahem, check the Model A Ford link below), she's a true idol to us. 

We have a set of values here at the Ranch, and many were exemplified by O'Keeffe in her tenacity for learning and fearlessness to be herself. She was so much more than a woman that painted suggestive flowers. 

May we all strive toward her brand of authenticity, vibrancy, and gumption for our lives. 

Are you inspired yet??

You don't really know someone 'til you meet their friends
  • The Georgia O'Keeffe Museum has an ongoing "Oral History" project to document stories of people that knew or met O'Keeffe. It's one thing to look at and learn from her art, but listening to these stories brings in a whole new element.
  • More artists reflect on her influence on their work and lives in this Tate article

Legend of the "Rancho de los brujos" Why is O'Keeffe relevant today, you ask?    O'Keeffe's insightful advice for what to do with bugs on houseplants "An O'Keeffe on the rocks, please"  
Do you have an O'Keeffe connection or similar story of inspiration?  In the spirit of Geogia's birthday, we'd love to hear about it.

I could write a million run-on sentences about O'Keeffe's creative spirit. Instead I'll leave you with one of her (many) motivational-poster-worthy quotes to get you through the day:


"The way you see nature depends on whatever has influenced your way of seeing."
