Ghost Ranch is a sprawling 21,000-acre retreat center and educational facility located in northern New Mexico, surrounded by red rock mesas, towering cliffs, and wide-open skies. The topography of Ghost Ranch is characterized by a unique and awe-inspiring landscape of rocky outcroppings, deep canyons, and rolling hills.
One of the most distinctive features of the Ghost Ranch landscape is the towering red cliffs that rise above the surrounding terrain. These cliffs are composed of layered sandstone and shale that have been eroded over millions of years by wind and water to create striking patterns and shapes.
In addition to its cliffs and canyons, Ghost Ranch also features numerous mesas and plateaus that offer stunning views of the surrounding landscape. These elevated areas are often covered in scrub brush and grasses and provide habitat for a variety of wildlife, including mule deer, coyotes, and bobcats.
Overall, the topography of Ghost Ranch is both rugged and beautiful, offering visitors a unique and unforgettable experience of the natural beauty of the American Southwest. Whether you are a hiker, a photographer, or simply a lover of the outdoors, Ghost Ranch is a must-see destination for anyone visiting New Mexico.
As an artist Ghost Ranch is inspiring. Georgia O'Keeffe, one of the most renowned artists of the 20th century, had a deep and abiding relationship with Ghost Ranch in northern New Mexico. O'Keeffe first visited the ranch in 1934, at the invitation of her friend and fellow artist, Rebecca Strand. She immediately fell in love with the rugged beauty of the landscape and returned to Ghost Ranch year after year, eventually making it her permanent home.
I have tied to photograph this how Georgia might have painted it. Learn more about her in the blog post.

71" x 40" Gallery Acrylic Facemount
Acrylic facemounts are very popular mediums for photographers, art galleries, and fine art applications. Since an acrylic facemount has greater longevity, durability, and quality of materials, it is also ideal for creating wall art for the home or corporate art.
Your image is printed on archival photographic paper using pigment-based inks with Epson professional printers. Utilizing all-new high-performance printhead technology, the print colors and quality are fine art and industry-best. We add a subtle glow to your print, with a metallic print upgrade - a perfect effect for this image.
On our Gallery Acrylic Facemount, there is no added space between the acrylic and the print. This enhances the image and its colors and reflects them brilliantly in your home or gallery. This vibrant option's unique style has easily become a favorite among professional artists and galleries.
The materials alone produce superior quality and color accuracy; the resolution, depth, and vibrancy of colors on photo paper are unmatched. The photo print is then facemounted to a quality acrylic using an opti-clear, pH-neutral adhesive with UV inhibitors.

O'Keeffe was deeply inspired by the unique and vivid colors of the Ghost Ranch landscape, which she incorporated into her paintings. The vibrant reds, oranges, and yellows of the surrounding cliffs and mesas, the deep blues of the sky, and the muted greens and browns of the vegetation all found their way into her work.
