Georgia on my mind

Everyone has many associations with a flower. You put out your hand to touch it, or lean forward to smell it, or maybe touch it with your lips almost without thinking, or give it to someone to please them. But one rarely takes the time to really see a flower. I have painted what each flower is to me and I have painted it big enough so that others would see what I see.

Click on the link in the title to see an awesome website dedicated to the magnificient artist Georgia O'Keefe. Ever since learning about this artist in high school, she remains one of my idols. I'm not sure what it is about her, her strength, her dedication to art perhaps - that enthralls me.
