Happy Birthday, Miss O’Keeffe!

I think it’s quite appropriate to launch my website and my blog¬†Art Matters, on Nov. 15, 2012, which just happens to be the 125th birthday of Georgia O’Keeffe!

Happy Birthday Miss O’Keeffe!

This is one of my favorite photos of her because it’s so unexpected. We tend to think of the O’Keeffe icon, strict bun, black and white in person and image. But my research, and what I hope comes forth in my one woman show, “O’Keeffe!”, is an artist who like all artists struggled and loved, and unlike many, lived a long, long time. ¬†Georgia O’Keeffe, 1887-1986.
