The words... Georgia O'Keeffe
I decided that if I could paint that flower in a huge scale, you could not ignore its beauty.
I decided to start anew, to strip away what I had been taught.
I don't very much enjoy looking at paintings in general. I know too much about them. I take them apart.
I feel there is something unexplored about woman that only a woman can explore.
I found I could say things with color and shapes that I couldn't say any other way - things I had no words for.
I had to create an equivalent for what I felt about what I was looking at - not copy it.
The sight... of the sea and all the peace that it brings
