Georgia Inspirational Colors 1


 I had the rare privilege in high school. My art teacher was very passionate about art and really and truly cared about me.  Her name was Penny.  I really liked her and i learned more from her than any books I have ever read or museums I have ever visited.  One of the most memorable lessons I ever had from Penny was her class on Georgia O’Keefe.  I love Georgia.  I find her art both vibrant and fulfilling.  I can literally get lost in her paintings.  I will never forget the first time I saw an O’Keefe flower and skull.  Someday i hope my two boys learn to love art like I have.  I really need to take them to a museum or two.

    I too had art teachers while going to HS of Art & Design and Parsons School of Design who influenced me when I was a young artist. I will never forget them. It’s great that you had a teacher who influenced you as well by introducing you to her vision of art. I am sure your influence of art will rub off on your sons. Art for me is an escape from all the craziness in the world we live in. As you say, something to get lost in.

    I had gone to see the complete collection of Georgia O’Keefe’s art work at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York a few years ago and it was an amazing experience. Seeing her paintings up close can’t compare to seeing them in a book or on a computer. There is so much color and so much depth and her style changed so much through the years. She is one of my favorites as well.
