I am lucky enough to have visited the Georgia O'Keefe museum in Santa Fe, New Mexico. It was a wonderful experience and I love her paintings. This is one I'm not familiar with, but that doesn't surprise me, since I am into her flowers more than anything else. Thanks for sharing these wonderful videos and the painting with us for T this Tuesday.ReplyDelete
BTW, I will link you to T, so you don't need to.
You once again inspired me - I will watch the O'Keefe film in German tonight!ReplyDelete
What a remarkable artist and woman! I loved watching her life story on the video link and all her abstract and modernist art is so beautiful, she is such an inspiration 😁. New Mexico is one of our favourite places and we have visited there many times, to me her art captures it's beauty perfectly! Wishing you a very Happy T Day! J 😊ReplyDelete
She was a great artist and fascinating woman. I'm just reading a detective story centred around her art. Happy T Day, hugs, ValerieReplyDelete

Such an inspirational artist. Two super videos you shared with us today.ReplyDelete
Happy T day wishes.
I've been fortunate to see her paintings at the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston. I did not know much of her backstory so thank you for posting the film. I thoroughly enjoyed it.ReplyDelete
This is a fantastic post. I have been to Georgia O'Keeffe museum and they have a nice little selection of her work. And I have even seen that film! (Wow, for once I feel a little knowledgeable about your post). :) Georgia O'Keeffe was an amazing artist. But I did learn that she died on this date. Hope it was a happy T day. Hugs-ErikaReplyDelete
I really want to visit some more of our local museums so I can enjoy the art and culture right down the road. Thanks for the reminder.ReplyDelete
Happy T day!
I love being introduced to new artists-thank you so much Loving her workReplyDelete
Happy T Day
I hope some day to visit her museum in Santa Fe some day! I am familiar with her art, but didn't know her story. I will have to be on the look out for the movie about her. I enjoy your artist posts and I look forward to your posts each week! Thank you!ReplyDelete
we had a great o´keeffe Exhibition in munich a few years ago - i was happy to see it, as some of her paintings seldom are traveling around the world. thanks for the reminder:)ReplyDelete
Thank you for introducing this artist to me. I had heard her name but weas not familiar with her work, even less her story. Fascinating! I can understand her fascination with the landscape. Our area is a bit like that and we love it too.ReplyDelete
Happy belated T-Day,
Fabulous videos, D! I watched the first in toto and need more time for the second. I love her work: both the abstract and the flowers (which most people know her by). She was truly a unique, inspired and bold woman - especially for her time.ReplyDelete
Happy T-day! Eileen
