Georgia O'Keefe pretty much put large off-the-page florals on the map. So I was not surprised when I was associated with her work. Of course I see many differences, but still loved the comparison.
No surprise humans have always loved flowers, after all, Nature created them to Be attractive; that's how they procreate their species. Along with my instinct to be bold, my paintings of these tiny buds are often 3 or 4 feet in height!
Another exciting view for me is to look closely within the flower's center. As we are encouraged to look within for inner peace of mind, so the inside of these awesome creations thrills us.
