The mystique of painter Georgia O’Keeffe’s life and work has continued to expand in the 31 years since she died.  Admirers trek to the Georgia O’Keeffe museum in Santa Fe and to her home in Abiquiu, and some hike the reddish brown dirt trails the artist walked at Ghost Ranch to catch a glimpse of the traces she’s left behind.

Late last month, the Georgia O’Keeffe Museum and Press at the Palace of the Governors convened an event called Our Times with Miss O’Keeffe.  It featured three New Mexicans who knew her well.  Deborah Begel has the story.
