Georgia's opinion of New Mexico

Georgia O'Keeffe was enchanted with New Mexico from her very first visits, and kept returning for many years until she moved here permanently in the 1940s.

On one of her early visits, she commented on her painting in the state:

"Half your work is done for you in New Mexico. Well. Well. Well. This is wonderful. No-one told me it was like this!"
