I bought a print at the National Gallery of Art when I was about 20, not knowing anything about the artist (only that they inspired me immensely), and it wasn't until several years later when I "accidentally" stumbled upon an extensive exhibit at the NGA, did I realize who the painter of the print was, and how powerful an artist they were. The piece was "Grey Line with Black Blue and Yellow", by Georgia O'Keeffe. I have to admit, after that show - my life changed.
Georgia O'Keeffe has always been my favorite female artist.
This is my response to the challenge "Feminine Art" at Inspire Me Thursday in honor of Women’s History Month. I thought it would be fun to create some digital collages using O'Keeffe's own flower paintings while incorporating her face within them.
