Love it / Live it: Georgia O'keeffe

Good morning! As we had more than our fair share of April showers, I am welcoming May flowers with open arms. The sun is shining, the trees are blooming and Summer is on it's way, life is sweet...

Artist Georgia O'Keeffe had a way of focusing in on the beauty of the simplest of things in life, such as a single poppy. Her work is unabashedly bold and expressive. Whether she was painting a large scale tulip or a mountain range, O'Keeffe believed that art was about relaying a feeling rather than a photographic image. In the case of the poppy I like to think that feeling was utter joy. What simple details are brightening your world today? Enjoy!
