Today, 1986, the deserts and mesas and mountains lost a friend………Georgia O’Keefe’s paintbrushes sang no more.
Another friend was left behind, although for too short a time. One of my favorite artists, Dan Fogelberg. I have written about him before in this blog. He wrote this song for Georgia, a personal friend. My words can’t match his beautiful ones, so I will let him speak for me today.
As Dan so eloquently wrote , Georgia’s hands and heart breathed beauty into her art.
In a way, she sang through her paintings…….of the places she loved.
This day must have been blessed by the Angels’ paintbrushes, for Michelangelo was born on this day as well, in 1475.
