Cactus Flower — Photo-Artistry by kenne

Everyone has many associations with a flower — 

the idea of flowers. You put out your hand to touch

the flower — lean forward to smell it — maybe

touch it with your lips almost without thinking —

or give it to someone to please them. 

Still — in a way — nobody sees a flower —

really — it is so small . . .

 

So I said to myself — I’ll paint what I see —

what the flower is to me but I’ll paint it big and

they will be surprised into taking time to look at it —

I will make even busy New Yorkers take time

to see what I see of flowers.

— Georgia O’Keeffe
