Who is she? .....and I hope to do 'whispering' too. Gilly
Georgia O'KeeffeAmerican artist...you can googleher. i was not so much enamoredof her painting as i was of herdevotion to looking closely andloooooong and her love of theNew Mexican landscape. She wasalso a very interesting woman.yes. i hope we all continue towork together in judes teachings
funny that, she's now appeared twice in 24 hours. an omen perhaps?
Kaite...if anybody could, it would be her, cruising around,checking things out.i have generational hollyhockshere that came from seeds i "lifted" from her garden atGhost Ranch.
in 1996, there was a 32¢ stamp issued with one of o'keefe's huge red flowers with the black center. i enlarged it and decoupaged it on a tile and it sits on a bookshelf.
gilly, there was (is) a movie of her life on Life Time I believe, any way one can order the video from amazon if they are interested. She was one very creative person and felt a need to create not just a desire.
my dad gave me a giant book of her work, years ago, what a great keeper.
is it that one that has her flower paintings in it? my late husband gave that to me for christmas one year...it is a treasure!
A great person to face each morning.Lots of seeing in that face-still seeing.
she lived i think to 98yrs. idon't imagine myself that long,nor would want to be. but ithink of her in the end days,unable to see well enough topaint. so she began potting.sitting at the wheel like shehad sat at the easel. insteadof seeing with her eyes, she sawwith her hands.maybe this is where the weavingwill come in for real. touch...
Hey Helen thanks Ihave just read up about it and I 'll try the library. Also Grace - I used a YouTube on Meinrad for Uni. the other day - so thank you! I could watch it a hundred times over.
Deanna, I saved one of those stamps too. Made it in to a magnet, it's on my fridge right now. Wonderful source of inspiration Grace....
Oh Grace, now THAT is a face to respect, is it not? Look at that lifetime of knowledge & experience stored in her face! She was so fearless on some levels...followed her heart and bucked the system and was muse to Stieglitz. Have you seen his photograph of her hands? (can send you the link if you wish)Deanna, I have that stamp, too....somewhere...an artisan had turned it into a pin, which I wore on a black beret for a couple of years. Gads, haven't thought of that in a couple decades! it was a red poppy, I think.
I see a smile inside her looking...
Grace I was so pleased to see Georgia over your desk. When I think of you in NM I think you must be fond of her too. We went to Abiquiu last winter to her house. I love seeing where she painted and her inspirations. LOVE her hollyhocks, so glad you have some. So nice to know you are there..
Christi..yes. her hands. somany of the photographs Stieglitzmade of her, his preoccupation withher. But she never gave any ofherself away. saved herself forher art. actually, i think, savedherself for the joy of Seeing.i think her art for her wassecondary to the Seeing.
Great photo... bought a book the other day, with photos of her in old age, and paintings - didn´t open it yet, quite like its presence, just the cover, as it is for a while...
Such a great woman and artist. I admire her as i do Louise Bourgois. For a moment i thought it was her. XXXm
Heike..i understand completely.to just anticipate opening isenough...
Martine~...i wonder if they evermet? if anyone knows the answerto that, please share.....
i can't say for sure but i would guess not... i have never read anything about their meeting and i have read a fair amount on them both as they are my two of my favorite artists.
nance...hmmmm. but in thinkingabout it, i wonder if they wouldhave talked about their meeting,if they had. i am going to think of themtogether now....like, sittingin a very large empty roomam going to make it adobe. theywill be watching a spider
LOL....'i am going to think of themtogether now....like, sittingin a very large empty roomam going to make it adobe. theywill be watching a spider'grace, you have a magnificent imagination...
and their common language will be art..
