August Challenge # 12-I Would Love to Meet.....

Today, I am going to share with you someone I would  love to meet...

Georgia O'Keeffe
One of my favorite artists...if not the Georgia O'Keeffe.  Not only do I admire her as an artist but also as a woman.  She was such a force in her private to be admired for her strength and fortitude....the leadership she has provided for women by her choices in life ..without really being a "political" person.  She broke ground in her art work...a style unlike any other to date.  She choose to live a solitary life and loved the great outdoors.  She was an independent woman who overcame a great deal of adversity.

I would love to be invited to her home for be able to work beside her in her talk to her about her life; her art; her gardening/cooking.  I have visited her home and studio in Abique, NM and it really was one of those spiritual moments to be in the place where she actually created!


  1. I'm SHOCKED that you went with Georgia O'Keefe (not).
    I agree wholeheartedly with everything that you said. Love her and need to take a page from her book...

  2. Georgia is my favorite artist! My husband and I have visited her home in Abiqui and drove out to Ghost Ranch. A photograph of her patio gate entry way used to be my computer wallpaper. Wow!

  3. i think you have excellent taste~!!~
    she's very high on my list of favorites as well and i would love to visit her home.
    if you should ever get that invitation to lunch i sure wouldn't mind joining the two of you.
