MICHAEL KESSLER PAINTING: EARLY O'KEEFFE

If you are interested in the early abstracts of Georgia O'Keeffe, take a look that this artist's video and information. You get to hear some talk and see some gorgeous work, all early charcoals and colored work that sings. If you are only familiar with her macro flowers and bones and southwestern landscapes, take a look.

Cathy, I just checked out a book at the library called 100 Flowers - all her flower paintings - large format and so lovely! There aren't many of her works I don't like except maybe some of the monotone abstracts from her beginning. I'm reading a bio of her now - so far she's slapped 2 children in the face!! Had a bit of a temper and was pretty rigid in a lot of ways but didn't have it easy with Stieglitz for a husband :(
