Georgia OKeeffes work was so great because she painted things in an abstract way but they were still familiar to the viewer She used vivid bold colours and shapes of nature She would change the scale of an object so much that it would fill up a whole canvas Like for example from the faraway nearby witch is a painting of a deers skull The title of this painting refers to the faraway a location that the artist once said was a beautiful untouched lonely-feeling place Georgia OKeeffe painted familiar things of nature that were around her such as flowers In 1929 when she visited a friend in Mexico her life and art changed She painted objects found in the desert such as a sun bleached animal skull and dessert sky She used the colours of the Southwest in her paintings-tans greys reddish browns and whites She was also interested in painting negative space such as the hole in a pelvis bone or the space between clouds Pelvis red and yellow 1960 Is one of many examples of this In this painting OKeeffe interprets the pelvis bone with a fiery palette of reds and yellows differentiating it from the more naturalistic colouring of the other pelvis pictures I like Georgia OKeeffes paintings because of the beautiful colours and oversized objects When I look at one of her flower paintings such as Red Poppy I could stare at it for a long time and find so much detail Georgia OKeeffe made a simple object that I normally take for granted and turned it into something really important and beautiful I personally think that OKeeffe was an artistic genius She created a new way to look at objects that we take for granted and paved the way for many women artists
