Georgia O'Keefe

Blue and Green Music, 1921, painting by Georgia O'Keeffe


It is always a wonderful thing to find that the written words of an artist you admire offer a similar depth and understanding as their art. Vincent van Gogh and Georgia O'Keeffe are my top 2 such artists. Here are some inspiring quotes from Georgia O'Keefe:

"I've been absolutely terrified every moment of my life - and I've never let it keep me from doing a single thing I wanted to do."

"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."

"To create one's world in any of the arts takes courage."
