O’Keeffe and color


Georgia O’Keeffe, My Autumn, 1929. Oil on canvas, 40 x 30 in. Estimate: $2,000,000 – 3,000,000. Photo: Christie’s Images Ltd 2011

I love the colors in this painting. Funny how one day one thing is very appealing and another day, it’s not. So, who knows whether this will appeal tomorrow, but for today, love it! And, of course, it could be mine. Christie’s is offering it at auction.

The last time I went to the Georgia O’Keeffe museum in Santa Fe, the exhibit Georgia O’Keeffe: Abstraction was showing. Many of the paintings were monochrome, but still fascinating because of what she did with those subtle colors.
