painting: georgia o'keefe

"I have things in my head that are not like what anyone has taught me...shapes and ideas so near to natural to my way of being and thinking that it hasn't occurred to me to put them down..." - Georgia O'Keefe

I recall learning about Georgia O'Keefe in my high school art classes, but dusty cow skulls are what comes readily to mind from that experience. When I ran across Pink Tulip, 1926 (The Baltimore Museum of Art), I was struck by the relevancy of the colors and forms.
