Georgia O'Keeffe

 Tonight, I went to hear Dawn Tripp  the author of  "Georgia",
speak about her popular new biographical fiction
about Georgia O'Keeffe 
and her relationship with Alfred Stieglitz.
It's a wonderfully engaging and thought provoking read and
I've been fascinated by all things Georgia ever since.

Georgia O’Keeffe, “Sunrise and Little Clouds No. II” 
(1916), watercolor on paper

This is one of her early abstract water colors,
done while she was teaching in Texas (in her early 20's)
before she went to NY.

One can only wonder how much of this pure expressive freedom
was lost when she went East?

Would love to hear thoughts from fellow readers out there....
