My husband, daughter and I took a trip to the de Young Museum to view the traveling Georgia O’Keeffe exhibition. The curator really showed her work to its full advantage with the lights dimmed and spotlights on each painting. The exhibition drew you into the artist personality with her quotes on the wall. It truly was wonderful to see such a large selection of her life’s work. This exhibition has inspired me to someday travel to New Mexico to the visit the Georgia O’Keeffe Museum.
I find this quote of Georgia’s humorous because I use models for my work. “I hate flowers – I paint them because they’re cheaper than models and they don’t move. ” – Georgia O’Keeffe
