 "such a beautiful, untouched lonely feeling place, such a fine part of what i call the 'faraway'. it is a place i have painted before...even now i must do it again" 

- georgia o'keeffe














 
when most think of georgia o'keeffe's work, her 1920's large format, enlarged blossom paintings are what come to mind. but i feel kindred with her life's later work when she frequently visited, and finally lived in northern new mexico. her color choices and subject matter reflect the quiet and subtleties of the desert. a feeling and calm i am so in love with here.
she makes me want to take up painting again.
