Dreaming New Mexico

Dreaming New Mexico--Gouache painting by Mitzi Linn

To dream something is to imagine something. I am imagining being in Northern New Mexico right now. Imagining another journey there is the first step--'the journey of a thousand miles begins with the first step'-- LaoTze--Tao de Ching

Ghost Ranch

Dark Horse Night--gouache painting by Mitzi Linn--inspired by time spent in New Mexico.

The Ghost Ranch outside Abiquiu NM is one of my favorite places. It is beautiful. They have a campground, a laundry, a library, rooms for rent, and a cafeteria. They host various workshops over the summer. Hiking and horseback riding are great ways to explore their land of enchantment. Here's a link to Ghost Ranch--one of Georgia O'Keefe's favorite places. You can walk to the house she owned there--where she lived and painted.
