quote
Marks on paper are free -- free speech -- press -- pictures all go together I suppose.

Georgia O'Keeffe
quote
I don't very much enjoy looking at paintings in general. I know too much about them. I take them apart.
quote
Georgia O'Keeffe
quote
I know now that most people are so closely concerned with themselves that they are not aware of their own individuality. I can see myself, and it has helped me to say what I want to say ... in paint.
quote
Georgia O'Keeffe
quote
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 the time to look at it-I will make even busy New Yorkers take time to see what I see of flowers.

Georgia O'Keeffe
quote
t was in the 1920s, when nobody had time to reflect, that I saw a still-life painting with a flower that was perfectly exquisite, but so small you really could not appreciate it.
quote
Georgia O'Keeffe
quote
I decided that if I could paint that flower in a huge scale, you could not ignore its beauty.
quote
Georgia O'Keeffe
quote
Objective painting is not good painting unless it is good in the abstract sense. A hill or tree cannot make a good painting just because it is a hill or tree. It is lines and colors put together so that they may say something.
quote
Georgia O'Keeffe
quote
I hate flowers. I only paint them because they're cheaper than models and they don't move.
quote
Georgia O'Keeffe
quote
Singing has always seemed to me the most perfect means of expression. It is so spontaneous. And after singing, I think the violin. Since I cannot sing, I paint.
quote
Georgia O'Keeffe
quote
Where I was born and where and how I have lived is unimportant. It is what I have done with where I have been that should be of interest.
quote
Georgia O'Keeffe
quote
One can't paint New York as it is, but rather as it is felt.
quote
Georgia O'Keeffe
quote
I found I could say things with color and shapes that I couldn't say any other way... things I had no words for.
quote
Georgia O'Keeffe
quote
To create one's own world in any of the arts takes courage.
