Channeling Georgia O’Keefe….

So, I finished the sketch of “Floral Overload”, and here it is:

So, now I begin on the large version.

For that, I realized I would have to do the flowers in careful, realistic detail.  For that, I’d need good flower pictures to study and draw. For any artist who may not be aware of it, there’s  a copyright free picture library at the Wet Canvas artists’ website.  So, I blithely went there, and plucked a picture of a pansey.  After a momentous struggle with Windows 8, I was finally able to print it out.

So, Georgia O’Keefe?  As I started to draw this pansey, I went into a meditative state, not quite in the samasara dimension.  When I came to, I realized the pansey was starting to look like a vagina….not something I intended.  Then, I thought of Georgia O’Keefe and her flower paintings, that were often compared to sexual parts.  I think everyone is of the opinion that this was intentional…but was it?

Maybe it’s a natural phenomenon that female sexual parts look the same throughout earthly creation.  Or maybe, I”m making too much out of it.

So, the question is…do I continue and accentuate this trend?  It wouldn’t be the first time one of my paintings looked (unintentionally) like a vagina.128
