|Georgia O'Keeffe, 2012 (Wall Calendar)|
I've been looking at the resource site I built back in 2007 when I did a major project about her.
What I didn't realise at the time (because I didn't do the maths!) was that although she decided she wanted to become an artist age 10, she actually didn't become a full-time artist until she was in her fourth decade. She didn't abandon teaching and go to New York until June 1918 - by which time she was 31.
So - for other fans of Georgia O'Keeffe here is.....
...first of all the website I built which provides a wealth of resources for all those who love Georgia's work - Georgia O'Keeffe - Resources for Art Lovers
...and secondly here are links to the blog posts I wrote at the time I was learning about her art and how to translate it into what I wanted to do. I've also included some posts I've written since.
