PORING OVER PAINTINGS BY GO'K

Well, the Lifetime movie got me wanting to know more about the life and art of Georgia O'Keeffe so I've visited 2 libraries for books. Most of them have her paintings (so many I had never seen), some talk about her relationship with Stieglitz, and then his photographs with her paintings...and finally a real biography I'll start today.


Until then...and since I'm not in a painting mood right now, here's a little sketch from a dream...


This will probably become a painting on gessoed paper sometime.

I missed the movie, but I am going to see if it is playing again so I can dvr it. Duh, why I didn't think of that the 1st time around I do not know. I took classes at Ghost Ranch many years ago and I was so interested in Georgia's history, also saw an exhibit in SF (when I lived there).
It would be great to find you in one of my classes some day :-)

Since it's a Lifetime movie, MB, I know they'll play it again...keep checking for it. If that doesn't work out, come on over on your many travels and we'll watch it together as I did DVR it :) I have the Frida movie, too! It may just be a matter of time before I am in one of your workshops - your work, your design skills and color skills really are inspiring to me.
