Georgia O’Keeffe




Nov 15,2019
It’s the birthday of artist Georgia O’Keeffe , born in Sun Prairie, Wisconsin (1887). In 1923, she said, “One day seven years ago I found myself saying to myself — I can’t live where I want to — I can’t go where I want to go — I can’t do what I want to — I can’t even say what I want to … I decided I was a very stupid fool not to at least paint as I wanted to.”


When I visited the home and studio of Georgia, I found her determination to see by touch,

to go macro to fill a gigantic canvas with one flower,

to negotiate to share her art with her lover,

to be thorny in a desert.

and colorful in a barren land!
