In May 2006 I traveled with some artists to see a show of Georgia O’Keefe’s work at the Mississippi Museum of Art. This show was a little different in that it included correspondence with conservator Caroline Keck. The show focused on their relationship and her impact on O’Keefe’s art.

Being a fan of O’Keefe’s work, I had to create a dot painting after the show. Borrowing a yellow-green color I spotted in one of her works, I painted an exaggerated abstraction of a flower. I kind of just went my own direction.

  1. The lovely light greens here totally make me thing of Spring (which, in turn, makes me happy.) Very nice. :)

    I’m happy that the painting made you happy.

  3. Damn, your work is terrific! I love how you start similarly with each (the triangle segments) and then build on them to create so many different things! The power of dots!!

    And I think it's great the way you bring us into the thought process behind each, your color choices are great, so rich and alive!

    Thank you for your "dot power" comment. I'm glad you enjoyed following my process.
