The first thing I did on my day in Santa Fe was to visit the Georgia O’Keeffe Museum. I just knew I had to go see it.
I already admired her work even if the flower paintings are not what speak the strongest to me, and I understood that there were other works to discover that are a little less known or shown.
I also wanted to do something on my own – and what a wonderful activity for my yearning spirit!
I felt such a recognition seeing her work and also very much the photos of Georgia O’Keeffe herself (by Aselm Adams amongst others), learning about her story and remarkable personality. Feeling we would have had much in common, and feeling inspired.
Seems she even had a thing with tea!
The paintings that made the strongest impression on me this day were those depicting the nature in New Mexcico where she lived. The mountains, Pedernal and the cottonwood trees – the same environments that I had found myself in for the last week.
