Happy Birthday Bone Lady!

by 1 November 15, 2010 2 Comments

Today is the 'Bone Lady's' birthday.

.

That is the name an unenlightened museum art director gave to Georgia O'Keeffe when she wished to donate some of her work to his museum.

.

...not that work by that Bone Lady!

.

So today, since it is her 113th birthday, I want to share some of my favorite things about Georgia O'Keeffe.  Here we go...

.

1. I think she looks simply stunning and sophisticated in a turban.

.

.

2. I love the simplicity of her classic, all-black dressing.

.

.

3. I think she has one of the coolest patios in the world and I would have loved to been invited for a chat and an iced tea.

.

.

4. I think her hands are art themselves.

.

.

5.  I like that she taught herself to drive her Model A Ford and her "Katy-bar-the-door" attitude towards anything that got in her way.

.

.

6. Right now, if I had to choose, I think I could stare at 'Pelvis with Moon' forever.

.

.

Now it is your turn.  What do you love about Georgia?  I can't wait to hear!

I admire that she could see beauty in simple things and that she stuck to her vision despite criticism – and how the colors of the New Mexican landscape inspired her!
I have been to the Abiquiu area and it is breathtaking!

Chris, I have never been but it has been on my bucket list for some time. We are headed up to Sante Fe at Christmas, maybe I can wrangle the gang into letting me make an Abiquiu pit stop!
