Today's Flowers: To Start Anew

From August 21, 2011

I said to myself, I have things in my head that are not like what anyone has taught me - shapes and ideas so near to me - so natural to my way of being and thinking that it hasn't occurred to me to put them down. I decided to start anew, to strip away what I had been taught. (Georgia O'Keeffe)

  1. Exquisite capture and a very interesting quote from Georgia O'Keefe! And as to be expected -- I loved them both! Hope your weekend has gone well so far, Sandy! Enjoy!

  20. Ms. O'Keefe was an original. From cow bones, to skies, to flowers, she had the eye, and the skill to paint what was in her head.

  23. love the delicate flowers -- almost like flowers within a flower. And it fits with Georgia O's quote beautifully. (One of the best museums we ever visited was the one dedicated to her work in Santa Fe.)
