Ode to Georgia O’Keeffe


“Nobody sees a flower – really – it is so small it takes time – we haven’t time – and to see takes time, like to have a friend takes time.”

~ Georgia O’Keeffe


Orchid Botanical Painting by Cassandra Gaisford. Bring beauty into your home with vibrant art. Feel happy and uplifted. Pops of brilliant beautiful colours will bring joy to your home and life.

Acrylic on canvas.

I recall reading Georgia saying that she felt that people are too busy to stop and look at a flower up close and that is what she wanted to give people in her paintings the joy of an intimate view of the beauty of a flower.

I hope you enjoy this sensuous abstract botanical which was inspired by an orchid sitting in my studio
