Channeling My Inner Georgia O'Keeffe

"Bowl of Beauty" peony
Georgia O'Keeffe magnified nature in her paintings in what was then a new and shocking way.  Often showing vivid colors of such a close-up of the plant it was sometimes distorted.  Absolutely beautiful and is widely popular today.

Some photos I take in my garden are not perfect in the whole - they show plant damage or are not placed well.  Some just beg to be magnified and it's a little bit of fun and the results are pretty amazing.  I've posted a few and suggest you click on them and slide show it for up close and personal.
