Having spent my entire adult life running away from Georgia O’Keeffe, I’m coming out of the closet yes I was obsessed with Georgia as a child and teenager. The big Viking Press publication of 1976 and Perry Miller Adato’s documentary the following year, that was pretty much the only thing PBS showed in the late ‘70s, that and those other jewels the Dick Cavett Show and The Joy of Painting and of course McNeil-Lehrer. So what are the absolutely most splendiferously loony paintings of Georgia O’Keeffe?
