O'Keeffe was particularly fond of Pedernal Peak, a prominent mesa near her home at Ghost Ranch, New Mexico. "It is my private mountain," she once said, "God told me if I painted it enough, I could have it." In an unusual juxtaposition, she has framed the mountain within the opening of an abstracted bone, a common motif in her later work.
