Blue Morning Glories

Georgia O’Keeffe’s oil on canvas painting called Blue Morning Glories was done in 1935. O’Keeffe was a groundbreaking modernist painter who digressed from realism to express her own visionary style. She was raised in rural Wisconsin, which gave her a love of nature. She is best known for flower paintings, which made up a significant percentage of her work. She painted enormous close-ups of flowers and she highlighted their importance in a manner that attracted attention. I find this painting quite pretty and enjoy the use of shading.
