"These works of art are self-portrait of a woman and an artist in full bloom. They are extraordinary because of the complexity and richness of their intimations. They speak of many things - the idea of filling a space in a beautiful way, the sheer joy of painting well, one woman's life. To me they are above all the most sublime expression of love that had ever been put into paint." ~ Nicholas Callaway ~
I simply love flowers!
I love roses for they are the ultimate message of true love. Flowers symbolize emotion gently unfolding like the love growing in your heart.
This gem of a book, Georgia O'Keeffe: "One Hundred Flowers" is one of my favorite art/coffee table books and as someone who loves to draw and paint, this to me is a treasure more than anything else in the world! The size of this book is 16" x 14" x 1" - it's absolutely a collector's item. I love looking at one hundred beautiful flowers magnificently compiled here by Nicholas Callaway and truly appreciate the beauty and charm of each flower painted delicately with pastel and dainty colors by one of my favorite painters of all-time, Georgia O'Keeffe. I have appreciated her beautiful works of art and I own some of her most remarkable works. Who else can capture the beauty of flowers with brilliant imagination and innate creativity than Ms. O'Keeffe?
My beautiful, intellectual and creative sister, who is a Physician and paints as a hobby, got me into painting when two winters ago, while I was spending Christmas holidays with her and her very own family, a blizzard after Christmas Day kept us inside the house for almost three days and we had painting sessions with her son, daughters and her daughters-in-law where she taught us the basics. My first few paintings are of course flowers since I'm greatly fascinated by the charming masterworks of Georgia O'Keeffe. And I believe that flowers say a thousand words. These O'Keeffe works of art are startling with sensuality with images that constituted a new language through which the artist expressed profound emotion.
I'm so fascinated by every painting but the masterworks that deeply caught my eyes include the following. I own framed prints of the first five and they are all eye-catchers.
