I’m not sure when I first discovered Georgia O’Keeffe’s paintings. I do remember finding a book full of her work in the art section of my favorite bookstore at the time – Starlight Books in Newmarket, Ontario. It was a friendly place, a place where I could take my time and work my way through the art section, looking for the best used art books I could find there. The Georgia O’Keeffe book was one of those.
I was enthralled. I fell in love with the way she used color and shape and light and shade. Even in those reproductions I could feel that her paintings had a life and a presence of their own.
I hope you’ll enjoy her work too, as it’s presented here – it’s just a taste:
