  • Such a beautiful woman ...

    My passion for painting certainly comes from ... somewhere ... far away from here and now, although still resonating with such an emotional appeal in me ...

    ... I would like to dedicate this special post to A Wonderful Woman, The great American artist Georgia O’keeffe - who is a painter I’ve always loved ...

    Such a strong and beautiful woman of 92 year old :http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BYwKRVJaNEA

    ... who died at 99 year old ...

    An Amazing Soul ...

    " ...Nobody sees a flower, really, it is so small. We haven't time - and to see takes time like to have a friend takes time...

    If I could paint the flower exactly as I see it no one would see what I see because I would paint it small like the flower is small. So I said to myself - I'll paint what I see - what the flower is to me but I'll paint it big and they will be surprised into taking time to look at it - I will make even busy New Yorkers take time to see what I see of flowers.

    ...Well, I made you take time to look at what I saw and when you took time to really notice my flower you hung all your own associations with flowers on my flower and you write about my flower as if I think and see what you think and see of the flower - and I don't....

    ...I have things in my head that are not like what anyone has taught me...shapes and ideas so near to me...so natural to my way of being and thinking that it hasn't occurred to me to put them down..."
