Georgia O’Keeffe’s work was abstract still you could feel every emotion that she was trying to express, her colors are clear crisp and pure, muted but intense. Mixing colors is complicated and muddy tones can easily appear even in the best artist’s work, but when you look at Ms. O’Keefe’s work the fresh sense of outdoor light and all of its hues make her painting one of a kind.

Georgia Totto O’Keeffe (November 15, 1887 – March 6, 1986) was an American artist. Born near Sun Prairie, Wisconsin, O’Keeffe was a major figure in American art from the 1920s. She received widespread recognition for her technical contributions, as well as for challenging the boundaries of modern American artistic style. She is chiefly known for paintings of flowers, rocks, shells, animal bones, and landscapes in which she synthesized abstraction and representation. Her paintings present crisply contoured forms that are replete with subtle tonal transitions of varying colors. She often transformed her subject matter into powerful abstract images.
O’Keeffe played a central role in bringing an American art style to Europe at a time when the majority of influence flowed in the opposite direction. This feat enhanced her art-historical importance given that she was one of few women to have gained entry to this level of professional influence. She found artistic inspiration, particularly in New Mexico, where she settled late in life. FROM WIKIPEDIA
