Today the studio was both hushed and full of activity. Some participants were cleaning up and leaving early, some finishing last minute details, settling up bills (mine was very high I have a very supportive husband!), and saying goodbyes. I didn’t take any photos today but here is one from earlier in the week of the group!

Susan and I ended the day on a “Behind the Scenes Tour” of the Georgia O’Keefe Home and Studio. We saw the room where she stretched her canvases, her bedroom next to the studio (now set up as a bedroom) and the fall out shelter in addition to the regular tour. It is really a magical place, no wonder she waited 15 years until she could buy the house. Georgia O’Keefe’s bedroom is on the corner of the house. The two outside walls have enormous plate glass windows with a view overlooking the valley. She could lie in bed and look at this view. We were not allowed to take anything up to the house with us – no photos allowed – but I found this one on the internet.
