I was so happy to be a guest on @brooklyntarot’s @cosmic.cousins podcast as a participant on a panel on the magic of Scorpio! 🦂 like any Scorpio panel worth its mettle, we talk sex and death, plus we weigh in on how Björk and Georgia O’Keefe embody the traits of our sign. link in bio to check it out!
Another birthday post, today for O’Keefe! 💫Appropriately timed with the upcoming opening of Georgia O’Keefe: Living Modern at @clevelandmuseumofart:

“Nobody sees a flower - really - it is so small it takes time - we haven't time - and to see takes time, like to have a friend takes time” - Thank you for making us see the flowers Georgia O’Keefe! Iconic artist born on this day 131 years ago. Look for our Fall 18 collection in the Georgia O’Keefe Museum store. #okeefemuseum#santafe#pavosf#fw18 @okeefemuseum #georgiaokeefe#accessories#redpoppy
Happy birthday, Georgia O’keefe! 🌵I spent my own birthday a year and a half ago on a horse at Georgia’s #ghostranch , soaking up the same scenes that inspired her creativity and change and independence. 🌅 A year after this picture was taken I accepted a job in Alaska and kissed corporate life goodbye. It was terrifying and liberating and new and after a panicked phone call with my sister questioning all of my life decisions, she texted me this Georgia quote: “I've been absolutely terrified every moment of my life - and I've never let it keep me from doing a single thing I wanted to do.” #myreallifeproject#georgiaokeefe
It’s difficult to capture the depth of the extraordinary colors in Georgia O’Keefe’s “Jack-in-the-Pulpit IV” currently at home in the East Wing of the National Gallery of Art in Washington, DC @national_gallery
Out of the four in the series currently on display, this one is by far my favorite. Maybe because I’m drawn to black 🖤 and have a love affair with green and blue
Georgia O'Keefe was born today in 1887. She re-defined herself on her own terms, which is as courageous an act as any.
It takes courage to put yourself out there. And artists put their work out into the world, and then the world does its best to categorize it, interpret it, and define it. It would be far safer to keep it inside the mind of the artist, but that is not what art* is meant for.
Her flower images received so much interpretation, particularly from men and feminist critics who saw these paintings as veiled illusions to female genitalia, that she spent six decades disagreeing with them. For her, there was no hidden symbolism, just the essence of the flower. "Nobody really sees a flower - really - it is so small - we haven't time - and to see takes time... So, I said to myself - I'll paint what I see - what the flower is to me, but I'll paint it big and they will be surprised into taking time to look at it." *life
جورجیا توتو اوکیف نقاش زن آمریکایی بود. وی در ۱۹۱۵ یکی از پیشگامان نقاشی آبستره در آمریکا بود و از کارهایش در این سبک میتوان به تابلوی «موسیقی سبز و آبی» در ۱۹۱۹ اشاره کرد. با این وجود اوکیف بعدتر رو به سبکی فیگوراتیوتر آورد و شروع به کشیدن گلها یا سوژههایی با موضوعات معماری نمود که اغلب نیز حالتی سورئال داشتند. نکتهای که در دید عامه به نقاشیهای اوکیف نسبت داده میشود اینست که اکثریت نقاشیهای او شباهتی بسیار با آلت تناسلی زنانه دارند و از آن در بسیاری از نقاشیهای او و سوژههایش الهام گرفته شدهاست.
اوکیف در ۱۹۷۱ متوجه شد که دید چشمهایش به شدت در حال کم شدن است و مجبور شد تا از کشیدن نقاشی دست بکشد. در ۱۹۷۷ جرالد فورد، رئیسجمهور وقت ایالات متحده آمریکا، مدال آزادی رییس جمهوری که بالاترین جایزهای است که از سوی رئیسجمهور کشور به شهروندان آمریکایی داده میشود را به جورجیا اوکیف اعطا نمود. اوکیف همچنین در ۱۹۸۵ مدال ملی هنر را دریافت داشت.
'I found I could say things with color and shapes that I couldn't say any other way — things I had no words for'- Georgia O’Keefe
Today is the birthday of Georgia O’Keefe, a trailblazing woman who created not only a name for herself in the canon of contemporary art, but as an independent thinker and free spirit who used color and shape as a language to impart the beauty and wonder of the natural world as a metaphor for the human spirit: fragile, resilient, bold and regenerative.
I remember going to the Art Institute of Chicago for school field trips and her paintings always made me feel the most alive and in awe of their brilliance. ..and they still do.

Artists honoring artists. All is not forsaken. There is still beauty and reverence in the world.
@Regran_ed from @thisispattismith - This is
the artist Georgia O’Keefe, taken
by Alfred Stieglitz in 1918. These
two great forces recognized one
another, loved and collaborated,
bucking social norms of the day.
Her radical abstractions as well
as her unique style were admired
by Stieglitz. His photographs of
O’Keefe bare her earthy, intelligent
beauty, a visual testament to their
mutual trust and communication.
It is the birthday of Georgia O’Keefe,
an artist who transformed desert,
flower, and skyscraper with her deft
confident hand, her independent eye. - #regrann
Made to honour Frida Kahlo, Emily Carr, & Georgia O'Keefe; "Effigy" by Liza Hageraats combines three iconic images from each artist to display the head, heart, and soul of nature and femininity. Each element is braided together to show the flow of inspiration between women artists. ⠀
Come by the CCBC Shop & Gallery to see this work and many others during the last week of the SHRINE exhibit, on now until Nov 22. ⠀
Here's a Georgia O'Keefe from the weekend. Entitled A Street. 1926. Oil on canvas.
I love the staggering height, earth tones and view to the streetlamp. Fabulous perspective.
Happy Hump Day! -
We’re having so much fun reading through the applications for our 200 Hour Teacher Training this January. We ask all applicants to share a few quotes, poems, or inspiring stories, and this O’Keefe quote struck us today. As the rain brings color to the flora around you - yes, even in NYC - take a moment to stop and look.
And if you’re thinking about our Teacher Training, come to the info session this afternoon, ask questions and meet your TT Teachers!
Today, Tuesday, November 13, 4:30-5pm, 660 Franklin Ave
The expansive lands of Northern New Mexico are beautifully diverse and unlike the landscape of the rest of the state.
Home to the famous painter, Georgia O’Keefe, this area is often called Ghost Ranch.
A daytrip from Santa Fe brought us North through Abiquiu, Cebolla, and then through the Carson National Forest into Tres Piedras.
If you have the chance to visit this area, rent a car and take your time exploring. It’s a unique portion of the Southwest, well worth a visit!
sisterhood is important. sisterhood in the desert is nice. sisterhood to reflect on all the badass bitches who open doors (vs. closing them b/c of their insecurities) is a requirement. thank you @elreycourt for being the backdrop to a dope-tastic weekend in the high desert. big ups to #georgiaokeefe for being the shero i didn’t know i needed.
