Spread #70- My Landscapes And Yours Too September 24, 2009Posted by Orly in Uncategorized.
Painter Georgia O’Keeffe once said that nobody could teach her how to paint her landscapes. I can see that. I have ways of understanding this statement. As for me…anyone can teach me how to paint my landscapes. In fact everybody does, always did and always will, even long after they’ve been gone and even when I wasn’t quite paying attention…my mothers and my fathers, my men and my children, teachers and students, friends and strangers and the oh so many in betweens. In fact ‘they’ are an integral part of my landscapes. ‘Their’ topographies, fused with mine, create valleys and mountains, waterfalls, and rich, lush habitats. I am aware of it every day. I am taught how to paint my landscapes by everyone who crosses my path and even for a split second, I am taught by you! Take a look at only a tiny fraction of my present day teachers, a handful of people I’d like you to meet and allow yourself to be taught by them…let them be taught by you.
And last but not least…

Who teaches you how to paint your landscapes?
