Spring Break

Red Canna by Georgia O'Keeffe, 1923, University of Arizonia Art Museum.
Everyone has many associations with a flower - the idea of flowers. Still-in a way - nobody sees a flower - really - it is so small - we haven' t the time...So I said to myself - I'll paint what I see - what the flower looks like to me but I'll paint it big and they will be surprised into taking time to look at it.
-Georgia O'Keeffe, Georgia O'Keeffe, Viking, 1973.
