To create one’s world in any of the arts takes courage. (Georgia O’Keeffe)
In “An Invitation to Happiness” (13 June 2011), Touch2Touch posted a striking red and green image — poppies in a wheat field in France — together with a quote from Karl Duffy: “… I am given opportunities each day to collect moments of colour, little miracles of light, that give me courage to go on and renew my joy. They invite me to not just live life, but to celebrate it.”
A couple of days later, Touch2Touch posted poppies again — this time, one of the poppy paintings of Georgia O’Keeffe. I began exploring the connections between those “moments of colour, [those] little miracles of light” and Georgia O’Keeffe’s “courage to create”.
I found I could say things with color and shapes that I couldn’t say any other way — things I had no words for. (Georgia O’Keeffe)
