Happy Birthday: Georgia O'Keeffe

Georgia O'Keeffe was born on November 15th. She's famous for her paintings of flowers but her landscapes are what I want to focus on. 

Reading her bio on the Georgia O'Keefe Museum website, I learned that she suffered from macular degeneration. At age 90 she observed, " I can see what I want to paint. The thing that makes you want to create is still there." She did continue to paint but with assistance.

"I've been absolutely terrified every moment of my life - and I've never let it keep me from doing a single thing I wanted to do."
