The Essence of Voice

They said that in desperation, O'Keefe reviewed all her previous work and "decided to paint in ways that would please her." This brave choice resulted in the signature Georgia O'Keefe style we know so well. On a quiet morning, I flipped through nearly 300 snapshots of my work, searching for those that speak to me, that I enjoyed painting. The result is a collection of 50 that I think reflect my artistic voice.

Some common elements:

  •  Vibrant color
  • Landscapes, seascapes
  • Text
  • Textures
  • Strong horizon line
  • Grids
  • Natural elements
  • Messy scrawling areas of paint
  • Natural organic subject matter
  • Emotional aesthetic
  • Indistinguishable brush strokes

Here are some that still stick with me. Do you see any similarities?
