Lifetime movie network is premiering a film about the great American
artist Georgie O'Keefe. I must confess that I don't know much about
her life or her work, although I have of course heard of her and seen some
of her more popular work. I find her flower pieces beautiful and found a
few with pink for you!
I know this one isn't pink, but I find it beautiful in it's own way. Georgia
moved to New Mexico in the 1930's, when the "dust bowl" was at it's
height. There were an enormous amount of animal skeletons in the
desert and Georgia frequently painted them.
The Lifetime movie starring Joan Allen and Jeremy Irons premieres:
Saturday September 19 @ 9pm et/pt
Sunday September 20 @ 7 pm et/pt
Tuesday September 22 @ 9 pm et/pt
I think this will be a fascinating glimpse into the life of one of the very
few famous female American artists of the day. Fair warning, I don't
know if it could get a little racy! I've heard Georgia and her husband
had a rather unconventional relationship. I would love to know if you
watch it and what you thought. I plan to see it myself!
As always, our Pink Saturday is hosted by Beverly at How Sweet The Sound.
Be sure to go to her blog to find all the links to the other participants.
Happy Pink Saturday and I hope you all have a loveleigh weekend!
