Great Americans #1 Georgia Totto O’Keeffe

Painter Georgia O’Keeffe died on this date in Santa Fe, New Mexico, in 1986.

To my eyes, she was a good looking woman (see picture above) and was so good artistically at looking at the world and then using her American freedom to create something new, that she became known as The Mother Of American Modernism.

She described her emotional life in these terms: “I’ve been absolutely terrified every moment of my life and I’ve never let it keep me from a single thing that I wanted to do.”

God Bless Freedom and Honest Aat.
