To create one’s world in any of the arts takes courage. – Georgia O’Keeffe

I picked Georgia O’Keeffe because my artwork has been compared to hers and yes she did inspire me with her flowers. I’ve always loved her paintings. I agree with her quote about art and that it takes courage. Why might you ask that I agree? As an artist we are our own worst critics and we must be courageous in order to do our work and to show others our work and to get over ourselves in order to do so.
