Georgia O’Keefe Original, Santa Fe

My copy/version

 

When I look again at the original I can see the depth of color that I wasn’t able to catch. But I learned a lot making this image. I’m not afraid of drawing clouds anymore, for one. And I notice them in the sky a lot more now.

Below is another O’Keefe that Emilie and I saw  when we visited her museum in Santa Fe. We loved it and I wanted to try copying it.

My Wonder Woman is an embellished copy of one of Matisse’s cut-outs:

 

Below is a copy of a Pucci scarf design. Crazy about his designs!

Mountain Fade

I got the idea for Mountain Fade from a DIY video online. My daughter wanted something on her wall, and found a model she liked online. Doing this project got me started and gave me confidence to approach a big blank wall with a lot less fear.

  1. There are certain aspects of your versions of O’Keefe that I actually like better than the originals. You have a very good eye and sense of composition. I hope to see a lot more of your original work.
