Trying to get into her vision and style one would almost have to shrink themselves and take a journey inside the body of a flower. Somethings are so beautiful sometimes you find yourself at a loss for words trying to describe it. That's how I find flowers, there is beauty, but there is so much more beauty than one can really express with words or paint.
Georgia O'Keeffe is an American Artist and her creative vision of enlarged blossoms and New York buildings earned her the title as the Mother of American Modernism.
I thoroughly enjoyed my journey of creating these pages for my dear friend Gemma. I learned more about Georgia than I thought I knew and I found out that it 's very therapeutic to get lost in the petals of a flower.
This is the first page I made for Gemma. I added a little dancing lady in the center. The petals of her skirt flip open on both sides and I have added quotes to them and a message to Gemma!
This is my version of one of her poppy paintings.
Dance of the Poppies
I added a ballerina who is dancing inside this beautiful flower.
Georgia O'Keeffe had her own style and vision and often proclaimed
"I'll do as I please"
Quote on the side reads: "I've decided to and start anew and strip away what I've been taught"
My last page did not include flowers at all. Georgia O'Keeffe also painted buildings and a painting similar to this one with a women in a shaw with big hat. I decided to paint the women with a similar hat and shaw sitting on a park bench resting.
