Arty Tuesday: Sun (x2) by Georgia O’Keeffe

I couldn’t decide between the 2 following paintings so I’m posting them both. What’s amazing to me is that they were both completed in the same year, 1927. The moods are so different as are the subjects although both feature the sun. I guess it’s the difference of painting in the Northeast vs the Southwest United States.

While much of the US (and the world) is enjoying the beginnings of Fall (or Spring…I guess in the Southern Hemisphere), in NOLA it is still hot, hot, hot. So enjoy a last blast of Summer with September’s theme of the Sun.
