my vacation: Santa Fe - The White Place

The White Place - 7 x 10 - watercolor
This is my last plein air painting done near Santa Fe, New Mexico. The White Place is also called 'Plaza Blanca.' Georgia O'Keeffe painted it many times. We figured out how to get there by asking the tour guide that showed us through Georgia O'Keeffe's home in Abiquiu. Plaza Blanca is also associated with the Dar al Islam mosque.
We painted for about an hour in a sheltered area, then hiked into the canyon to see the full glory of the hills. It's no wonder Georgia painted this geological wonder so many times. I've never seen anything like it. Here's some pictures from our trip:
