Chalk Pastel Flowers

Students will continue to color their Georgia O’ O’Keeffe style flowers.  Georgia depicted flowers in an unique way.

Georgia O’ O’Keeffe  is best known for her close-up, or large-scale flower paintings, which she painted from the mid-1920s through the 1950’s. She made about 200 paintings of flowers of the more than 2,000 paintings that she made over her career. One of her painting, Jimson Weed  sold for $44.4 million, making it the most expensive painting sold of a female artist’s work as of 2014.
