Cheeky Georgia O’Keefe and Friend
If there were ever a person who went her own way, it was the famously abrupt Georgia O’Keefe.
The Smithsonian Journeys blog has a charming story about an encounter with the painter: “The Day I Met Georgia O’Keefe.”
The boldest individual involved is the author who tells of the day she approached O’Keefe’s house in Abiquiu, New Mexico, carrying a handful of wilted lilacs. Many a bold individual would have dropped the lilies and run.
