Do-Something-Everyday: April 20, 2016
I did this papercut of a photo I took of the exterior of Georgia O'Keeffe Museum in Santa Fe last November (see below). O'Keefe, a former New Yorker, lived the last five decades of her life in Abiquiu, New Mexico, capturing its magical landscape in oil paintings. The Georgia O'Keeffe Museum in Santa Fe houses the largest permanent collection of her work in the world. When I was visiting Santa Fe in November 2015, the museum was running an exhibition titled "From New York to New Mexico: Masterworks of American Modernism".The exhibition included O'Keeffe and several other Modern artists. Fortunately, the museum allowed photographing some of the paintings which I have posted below. The paintings of O'Keeffe are the orchid, kachina doll, the pencil sketch and the finished oil painting of the adobe building.
I am linking my papercut which I call "Georgia on my mind" to the Art Journal Journey April Challenge, the theme of which is "For the Record". Georgia on my mind is an iconic song made immortal by Ray Charles and, although the song refers to a different Georgia, it applies very well here.
Thanks for visiting.
