I love Georgia O'Keeffe's work but was very disappointed in this book particularly the text The story told was too simplistic without any raw emotions and wonder that Georgia clearly felt Perhaps the book would have been better if it did not try to cover the artist's entire lifetime I also was annoyed how Rodriguez clearly ignored the brilliant work Georgia O'Keeffe did early in her life at Lake George and New York City only to focus on her work out west While O'Keeffe may have missed the outdoor world while living in NYC she clearly reveled in the amazing architecture I don't think this book will teach children how to see what O'Keeffe saw Perhaps by focusing on one area of her expertise like her flower paintings and how her love for cannas inspired them would have made a better book Or how many of her landscapes she preferred to hang them sideways Also a book on an artist can not clearly communicate their viewpoint without including some selections of their own work

Through Georgia's Eyes review ✓ eBook or Kindle ePUB ´ Georgia O'Keeffe saw the world differently from most people As a child she roamed the prairie with a sketch pad in her hand struggling to capture on paper what she saw all around her At art school she learned to speak in paint on canvasBut Georgia felt confined by city lConfined by city life She longed for vast expanses of space and she found it in the red hills and silent deserts of New Mexic. As much as I love Georgia O'Keefe's artwork this book was somewhat of a disappointment I found it to be very simple and slightly boring Perhaps it accurately portrays O'Keefe but I wanted to see specifics about her life The pictures did a nice job implicating her style as an artist but even those were a little boring for young children I do think that the author did a nice job demonstrating how much O'Keefe was one with nature with phrases like the trees and hills whisper their secrets They are friends always there for her and A canyon calls her The writing is uite descriptive in this manner as it chronicles her life as an artistI would recommend this book to primary elementary age children
