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.

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

quote
I hate flowers. I only paint them because they're cheaper than models and they don't move.
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.

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.

One can't paint New York as it is, but rather as it is felt.

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.

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
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
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
To create one's own world in any of the arts takes courage.

quote
I decided that if I could paint that flower in a huge scale, you could not ignore its beauty.
