georgia on my mind

 

georgia o’keeffe lived and painted until she was 98 in new mexico. she rocked solitude, sexy skull vagina paintings, and the modern masculine-femininity like no other.

oh, and she’s my guru. i even have a tattoo on my forearm of a cow’s skull to celebrate her. not even joking… yikes.

 

“It was all so far away – there was quiet and an untouched feel to the country and I could work as I pleased.”

ram’s head, white hollyhocks painted in the 1920s.

 


“Sun-bleached bones were most wonderful against the blue – that blue that will always be there as it is now after all man’s destruction is finished.”

cow’s skull: red white and blue.
