Kandinsky, O’Keeffe & Me

I think I know where this tapestry weaving thing is going to go.  If you know me well, you know that I have an intense interest in the life and art of Georgia O’Keeffe. Everything O’Keeffe.

I can’t paint worth a doodle.  I’ve tried.  Taken Lessons more than once.  It’s a no go. Apparently, not my medium.  I’ve been working with fiber for more than 30 years now so, obviously it’s my thing.  A passion.

Somewhere along the line I want to incorporate O’Keeffe into my work.  Not copy her, but pull into my work what I see and feel about hers.  O’Keeffe learned from Kandinsky’s work, and his geometric forms found their way into her work   In that same way I want O’Keeffe to find her way into my work.  Those same geometric forms from Kandinsky to O’Keeffe to me.

I like the idea of that.
