A visual feast of O 'Keeffe's flower paintings. Nick Calloway 's afterword is well done, and I found the story in his final paragraphs very moving. No one says it better than Georgia
O 'Keeffe herself - "If you take a flower in your hand and really look at it, it 's your world for the moment."

In the summer when it is hot, somehow looking at this make me feel cooler, and in the winter, it quells my impatience for spring to hurry come again ;) the Jimson Weed and the Jacks and the dark pansies are my favorites.

My favorite coffee table book! Luscious pictures that need no words.
Laura Jostes
flowers--up close and personal, just as O'Keeffe wanted us to see them. I lose myself looking into the oversize pages of this book.
Gail
Good essay at the end of the book. Nice color on the reproduced flower images. Gift sized.
CD
O'Keeffe at her commercial best.

For both flower and watercolor fans. G.O'K's 'best' work is perhaps elsewhere, but this is certainly the compendium for the art lovers shelf of some, if not her best and most widely known work.

A fun and colorful coffee table book, with a few surprises. There are flowers in this volume that never existed, no matter how much some may insist to the contrary.

Worth a look or two.

I have the full size edition and it is stunning!
Patsy Parker
I checked out a huge sized edition of this at the library. I was utterly amazed by what she did with flowers! I have been trying to learn to do the same. This was a very inspiring book!
Lara Sims
This is a great book and reproductions of her flower pieces.
Scott Fuchs
While I am not a major fan of O'Keefe's, this is a marvelously formatted, photograped and produced volume.
Rachel
One of my favorite inspirations for doing watercolors.
Janice
