O’Keeffe & Young Couple


Georgia O’Keeffe is my favor painter/Artist.

But I didn’t know about her and paintings till I move to this country in 1982.

I can’t remember how or where I saw her painting first time. But I remember that I went to Mendocino library and borrowed books and Video about Georgia O’Keeffe.

Now days it’s easy to get a lot of information through Internet.

I found these videos, which I watched many times back then.

I remember O’Keeffe said, “ He told me that my color is hopeless. So I painted barns in dark color. It was sold next day.” something like that.

I believe that she was talking about this painting. Mostly her colors of paintings are bright clear colors. So this painting is different from them. But still they are beautiful colors and strong charming composition. When I go to San Diego Museum, I visit this painting all the time.
