Georgia Totto O'Keeffe (November 15, 1887 – March 6, 1986) was an American artist. She was best known for her paintings of enlarged flowers, New York skyscrapers, and New Mexico landscapes. O'Keeffe has been recognised as the "Mother of American modernism.

Throughout her life, Georgia O’Keeffe collected shells and rocks, leaves and bones, many of which became the subject matter of her art. The above painting is called "White Shell with Red", she made in New Mexico in 1938, and she bequeathed it to the Art Institute after her death in 1986. O’Keeffe’s shell, which is rarely identified and often misidentified, is that of a northern moon sea snail (lunatia heros), a mollusk commonly found in shallow tides on the beaches of the Atlantic Ocean from the Carolinas to Canada.

Welcome PatsyNip. The sea shell is sleeping buried in a volcanic mountain on Earth, between sunrises and sunsets.

Thank you kayboblee. Her flowers are gorgeous and so is her art.

You are welcome Carolsmc. I am a great fan of Georgia 0' Keeffe and I've done some research over her inspirations.. especially the surrealistic buildings and ladders.

Hi Cindy, artists paint whatever inspires them. O' Keeffe's flowers were superb, but she just couldn't keep painting the same all her life, other things drew her interest.. It is interesting to read her full range of interests and how she painted them on canvas.

Voronica, O' keeffe was a very talented artist who sought ideas from nature. She painted flowers beautifully but was also inspired by bones and sea shell which she collected both. I've seen a series of paintings on animal skulls made of collected bones she had kept. The idea was that skulls link Heaven and Earth.

I'm like Voronica about being more familiar with Georgia's flowers and NM landscapes. You can never go wrong posting anything of hers. I really like this one.

Marina, this is certainly one of the most interesting of her that I've seen, I'm more familiar with the flowers and New Mexico landscapes, thanks for sharing. I love the vibrant color choices. Hugs* Voronica~
