Georgia O’Keeffe, an American Artist, has many paintings credited to her name.
One of my favorites is her oil painting on canvas: “Red Poppy, 1927″…
“Still-in a way-nobody sees a flower-really-
it is so small-we haven’t time-
and to see takes time, like to have a friend takes time.”

Note: Even though the original is privately owned, I feel fortunate to have a magazine copy of it, tacked on my bulletin board, in my office. It’s been hanging up there for a long time: the advertisement date is 1988. Perhaps I’ll frame it and hang it on my wall.
