The Lesser Known Georgia O'Keeffe

A new exhibit in Santa Fe:

Missing are the iconic paintings of flowers, bones and colorful landscapes that have made the American modernist from Wisconsin famous the world over. In their place are streaks of yellow and red, brilliant pastel swirls, blocks of contrasting color and stark charcoal lines slicing across nearly bare sheets of paper.
One of my mom's favorite artists. My mom was from the West and moved to Wisconsin when she married. She was an artist too. Of children and abstracts. Sometimes together:)

My children are my paintings, my paintings are my children.
