Let's Get Real Monday



This time "Let's Get Real Monday", hosted by Randi, asks us to post about a favourite artist. I chose Georgia Graham who paints wonderful flowing shapes with incredible colors. She is best known for her closeups of flowers. It was fun to look up some info about her (she died when she was 98 years old!) - something I don't normally consider doing or posting about. Thanks for the challenge, Randi!




"Oriental Poppies" - one of her most famous pieces




"Leaves of a Plant"




"Purple Petunia"
