Another "Longing for America" post...

January 31, 2016

I've been interested in Georgia O'Keefe's work lately. I'm not much of an abstract art lover (although I'm well able to appreciate it.) I typically don't gravitate towards making that myself. But her western scenes, her animals skulls in the sky, her vivid colors - entrancing. I also like the woman she seemed to be: strong, independent, determined, always moving forward. She also had a sense of peace about who she was. She liked herself. That is something terribly difficult to find these days. 

 

With her influence and my homesickness for America, I painted some cow, deer, and sheep skulls with flowers. Something pretty and something dead. I think it makes a pleasant balance. Nothing too saccharine made anybody feel right.
