“I decided that if I could paint that flower in a huge scale, you could not ignore it’s beauty.” ~ Georgia O’Keeffe
Georgia O’Keeffe did indeed paint HUGE fabulous flowers. The colors were vibrant and there was no mistaking the paintings were hers. Actually, she also painted some incredible black and white – which I didn’t know until now. I wonder if she had painted my flowers, would they look something like this?
Personally, I think a flower dressed in any color is fabulous.

[ Smiles ] That flower looks good in black and white.
Thank you, Renard.
great shots, love the black and whites. Will have to check out O’Keeffe’s paintings
Oh do! She was amazing. ( this coming from an art-challenged individual, but still)
I wouldn’t expect flowers to look like anything in black and white. But wow! They look beautiful.
Hey! Thanks! I’m no expert, but not too shabby. 🙂
I wondered if you’d like it and I’m glad you do.
I especially like the first carnation Gemma !
Thanks, Kathryn. 😉
Hope you’re well.
I am steady as she goes……
The first one is my favorite!

I’m thrilled and delighted that you have joined along. Great entry for this week! I set up a new blog, so to get new challenge announcements, please go to http://ceenphotography.com/ Thanks
Is the other one defunked? Or still active. I guess what I’m saying is, do I need to follow two blogs to not miss anything?
Love the close up on the daisy…. Stunning !
Thank you, CTB. Compliments are much appreciated. 😉
It deserved it 🙂
Fabulously good! Especially the carnation 🙂
Have a great weekend. Hope the weather is sunny and the days are fun.
Nice flower photos, Fabulous.
Flowers that are so alive! Beautiful pics. Thanks for bringing a smile to our day. Best wishes from Texas.
Thanks! Following your blog has almost turned me into a Dallas Cowboys fan. (Not! Go EAGLES) 😉
(Just a little – very little – football season humor. )
Fabulous B&W shots, Gemma. Love the carnation. What colour is it?
Thanks, ad. Yellow in real life. 😉
All beautiful! Nice to see flowers in b/w sometimes 🙂
Yes. See the beauty in everything. Good way if thinking. 🙂
Interesting tid bit about Georgia O’Keefe; I didn’t know that either.
I thought she was all about gorgeous, giant, colorful flowers. Apparently not.
That’s what we get for boxing someone in.
Sometimes you need a nudge. Then you look deeper. Then you discover. Yay!
Yup, too bad we had to get old to figure that out.
At least we did. Some people never do. And that’s my positive spin before I head off to dreamland. 😉
I like that spin!
Sleep well. I’m not too far behind you.
Hi Gem! The top one is my favourite, you’ve a lovely range of pale tones there. Picky point: the black and grey provides a good backdrop, and if you’d framed the shot a teeny bit more leftwards, that backdrop would have completely encompassed / framed the bloom. I’m a big fan of O’Keeffe.
And, in the bottom one, having the flowers out of focus works well, leading the eye into the (mouthwatering) menu. A 🙂
Thanks you for your help, Adrian. I’ll take another look at the first and give it a go. ATP
Oops and ugh! I see what you mean. You meant when I was taking the shot. Too late now. Boo! Annoying. I’ll find another flower. 🙂
HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!!!!!!!! 🙂 !!!!!!!
And there are pix of your’s lower right on my blog right now – but they won’t be there forever! 🙂
I’ll look. *big smiles*
Thanks, Adrian. I’m honored and oh so pleased. 😀
incantevole questo bianco e nero
Molto gentile parole, Ventis.
I like these a lot!
Thanks, Roberta. That MEANS a lot!
