    Hello, my beautiful bees It s Rachel here and it s time for another book review Before we really dive in, I ll preface this with letting y all know that it s an art biography and it s the first of it s kind that I ve ever read So when I go to my college library it s usually to study in a quiet environment The desk that I usually sit at has a beautiful view of the woods and man made stream that passes the outside of the library Right behind my usual s Hello, my beautiful bees It s Rachel here and it s time for another book review Before we really dive in, I ll preface this with letting y all know that it s an art biography and it s the first of it s kind that I ve ever read So when I go to my college library it s usually to study in a quiet environment The desk that I usually sit at has a beautiful view of the woods and man made stream that passes the outside of the library Right behind my usual spot is the art book section I ve always loved art but I ve never studied it, its history, or know much about artists in general besides what you typically learn about in school So I decided I was going to read the first art book on the shelf behind me, and Georgia O Keeffe An Eternal Spirit by Susan Wright was the lucky winner I also want to preface by saying that I am in no way an art critic or an expert in this field at all These views are simply from an art loving aka someone who likes any kind of art that she sees that she can vibe with book worm ART I love looking at it I got to see some amazing, beautiful, and inspiring art work of Georgia O Keeffe printed in the book Her art visually spanned from abstract, flowers, New York, and southwestern scenes My favorites were definitely her abstracts, sky scenes, and flowers I enjoyed the back stories and learning about her journey through life and then subsequently looking at the art that correlated with that part of her journey The book is separated by the stages of O Keeffe s art journey life journey, which I really appreciated It was cool to see which pieces of art correlated with whatever she was going through or the area that she was living at during that time The book also discusses her relationship with her husband, who was a photographer and had his own art studio spoiler alert her art debuted in his art studio and their relationship continued slowly from there It was honestly an educational experience and a fun introduction to a new genre that I had never previously delved into before I definitely want to read another book from this genre next semester Maybe I ll grab the second book from that shelf and see what I come across.Overall, Georgia O Keeffe An Eternal Spirit was an easy read, and I give it 5 5 stars If you are a creative or enjoy the arts, or simply want to explore a new genre and educate yourself on a little known artist, this book is definitely for you Give it a try

    This was a delightful book about Ms O Keeffe It offered details of her life, her teaching in different regions of the U.S and most of all her art work Although I have not seen all of her work I really liked the Oriental Poppies and all of the big bold prints that she used so frequently There were a few that I did not like, but I still feel that she was ahead of here time and a great artist I would definitely recommend this book to family members and friends.
