A Tribute To Georgia O'Keefe

I've always admired Georgia O'Keefe. Not only for her large flower paintings but as a woman she crossed all lines in both her art and personal life. I have a book .. Georgia O'Keefe Art and Letters. (1987) One of the letters she wrote to a dear friend said in part "I don't see why we ever think of what others think of what we do-no matter who they are-isn't it enough to just express ourselves ?" There is a film coming up this month (TV) and I'll be sure to catch it. Although I've painted and posted many a poppy, (my banner on this blog) neither of these are poppies and both were done years ago.

  4. Beautiful flowers. I love all of the color that I see.
    I saw Georgia O'Keefe museum in Santa Fe many years ago and I still remember the awe that I experienced seeing some of her art.

  8. I love these florals, Barbara. You have beautifully captured the shapes, the soft colors, and the structure in a wonderful design. Georgia would be proud of you.

    I love her work and just had the pleasure last Friday of going to San Francisco with a friend to view a show on Georgia O'Keefe and Ansel Adams, friends who used similar subject matter in different mediums.
