I chose Ghost Ranch, New Mexico - the heart-home of my very first art love, Georgia O'Keefe.
Or shall I saw, Ghost Ranch chose me. A mere two days after I had made my decision to go, an artist retreat was announced with 3 out of the 4 teachers being ones I had worked with during my early days in Seattle. Flora Bowley, Katie Kendrick and Misty Mawn. The 4th teacher, Orly Avineri was new to me. I signed up immediately.
I have tried now for over a week to somehow summarize my experience and I keep coming up short. Not because I have nothing say, but more because I'm now sitting on the opposite side of another profound experience with my heart wide open. Pull up a seat and a cuppa for there is no summary for this. My gift to you is the raw, along some curated images of my many photographs I took to document the journey.

The Beginning - May 11th:
The reward for a startling 3am alarm was a sunrise soaked Mt Rainier. Sunrise struck just before take off and unfolded into jeweled sherbet creamsicle kissed.
