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.
