Some Art Saturday

Georgia O'Keeffe's work has become quite ubiquitous, but I still love it. One very special piece of art that I own is a cross stitch version of the painting below. My best friend from grad school did it as a wedding gift and it hangs in our kitchen. I know she worked on it for a long time for us (including having it mounted and framed) and that's what makes it so special. I've never been to Santa Fe, but if I ever get there I will definitely visit the Georgia O'Keeffe Museum.
