Famous and talented painter Georgia O’Keefe hitching a ride on her land, Ghost Ranch in Abiquiu, NM with Maurice Grosser on his 1938 Harley Davidson Knucklehead. Photographed by Maria Cabot circa 1944.

Fun fact- when I was in Primary School, fifth grade, we did a huge project for an event called, “Night of the Notables” wherein we would dress up as our chosen historical figure. We had to create a large display board of our work and talk about it as if we were the person we were portraying. My choice? Georgia O’Keefe. It was fantastic being able to hang her paintings of flowers and skulls as a child.
