|Outback of Marie's No. IV|
I decided to return to an old blog tradition of Art Sunday. And to kick it off I thought I would feature some of the lessor know paintings of Georgia O'Keeffe. Yes, Virginia, she did paint things other than flowers and skulls. In fact I rather hate her flowers. I get the same visceral response to an O'Keeffe flower as I do to a howling coyote. Not only did she over do them but every almost every print maker and aspiring artist also did.
I think it is a crime that her landscapes have gotten lost in the mania after her flowers. I live in New Mexico and when to college here majoring in fine arts and did not become aware of her landscapes until nine years ago. I was recovering from a head injury and a friend gave me an O'Keeffe coffee table book which I thanked her for and ignored for months. I figured it was just more of her flowers.
