Finding Georgia

The first time I understood the meaning of the word "art" was as a child when I saw the painting "Red Canna" by Georgia O'Keeffe. That work is a depiction of a flower vibrantly alive with color, emotion and passion. It gave me the insight that an artist could render something as common as a plant to transcend it's form and become personal and deep with meaning. My appreciation for the work of O'Keeffe has continued since that day. It is no coincidence that flowers are among my favorite subjects to photograph. I love looking closely into their world full of texture and color. If you take the time to smell the flowers, you never know what you might find.
