I've been reflecting on woman in art after my visit at the De Young museum, her femininity transpires so well into Georgia's paintings, I see that in my paintings too, almost as if our expressions are a mirror of us, it is beautiful to see that.
I've seen many reproductions of her paintings and i can say that they are not half as beautiful as the real ones, i just wanted to remind the obvious, the oil paint is thick and smooth, it calls you to it. Her compositions are stunning, her natural world is a tool for expression, it is used to channel her art; nature is often abstracted and colors are chosen in a vibrant equilibrium.
I experience and enjoy the freedom of her visual expression, Georgia surprises us in what she offers us visually and often accompanies that with some writings about it. This made me think about how i can expand my opportunity of expression and i want to share it with you: DRAWING NO.9 is the drawing of a headache. It was a very bad headache at the time that i was busy drawing every night, sitting on the floor in front of the closet door. Well, I had headache, why not do something with it? So-here it is. By Georgia O'Keeffe
I wanted to close with two quotes by Georgia, this one that remind to what i said first "I feel that there is something unexplored about woman that only a woman can explore"' and
this one "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"
THANKS FOR YOUR TIME, Hope you have enjoyed it!
My desire would be that everyone that could share anything related to art, their art, art making, art viewing with no expectation but with the same freedom that brought ME making all my works.
