Instagram photo by hannahmavestrand123I love her words below, about the art she creates with my home as her inspiration. It makes me feel proud to be an artist & honored to come from where I do. Truly one of my all time favorite artists & women. It is impossible for me to look at her work & not feel inspired to create my own. #art #artist #newmexico #badlands #georgiaokeefe #femalerolemodel #inspiration "Well I made you take the time to look at what I saw and when you took time to really notice my flower you hung all your own associations with flowers on my flower and you write about my flower as if I think and see what you think and see of the flower-- and I don't. Then when I paint a red hill, because a red hill has no particular association for you like the flower has, you say it is too bad that I don't always paint flowers. A flower touches almost everyone's heart. A red hill doesn't touch everyone's heart as it touches mine and I suppose there is no reason why it should. The red hill is a piece of the badlands where even the grass is gone. Badlands roll away outside my door - hill after hill- red hills of apparently the same sort of earth that you mix with oil to make paints. All the earth colors of the painters palette are out there in the many miles of badlands. The light is yellow- orange and red and purple earth- even the soft earth greens. You have no association with those hills- our wasteland- I think our most beautiful country. You must not have seen it, so you want me always to paint flowers..." -Georgia O'keefe
