|O'Keeffe, Two Pink Shells|
While the temptation to see things buried within her shapes will always challenge viewers, I appreciate Georgia's work on a purely aesthetic level. Her soft colors and crisp lines enchant me. From the time I first copied her sunflowers in elementary school until I wrote my master's thesis about The Lawrence Tree, Ms. O'Keeffe has occupied a very special place in my creative mind.
Thank you, Georgia for your simple elegance (both in life and in art).
