The Moment

“If you take a flower in your hand and really look at it, it’s your world for the moment.”

Georgia O’Keeffe

Either click on the photos for a closer look, or go and find a flower and enjoy the moment…

Georgia O’Keeffe was an important 20th century artist, revolutionizing the way flowers were depicted in paintings. She showed the inner life of flowers, by painting them as if looking through a magnifying lens. A true inspiration to many who followed. (If you’re interested in her paintings, look at “georgia o keeffe flowers” in Google images, or take a look here)

  1. Now there’s one of those quotes that make you feel privileged to be alive. And you actually managed to photgraph your flowers in the style of O’Keefe’s paintings–you’re brilliant, Cathy!

  2. She is my inspiration. As a teenager I tried to paint wild close-ups of flowers on a grand scale. Now I just take pictures! Had the opportunity to see her work in Santa Fe, amazing experience! Love your photos of your clematis.

  4. I love this quote very much. In order to be happy human beings need such moments, I think.
    You have beautiful “Clematis”, Cathy!

  5. I like Georgia O’Keefes´ paintings as well. Funny, when I saw your pictures I immediately thought of her even before I read the text.

  6. So beautiful Cathy! I so love the perspective you ‘ve shown and the quote too. I have always loved Georgia O’keeffe and have a print of her famous poppy painting that I purchased when visiting the MET for the first time. Thanks for bringing her into my thoughts again.
