When I visited Ghost Ranch a few years ago, I saw the house where Georgia O’Keeffe lived and painted…this is the gate to the courtyard of that spare, modest adobe home. She was an extraordinary woman for her time…they say she’s the most important woman painter in history. Whoever “they” are maybe don’t know our own Emily Carr, but either way, both women were trail blazers, who refused to conform to the norm, and who gave themselves permission to be artists. Really, if one wants to be an artist, we have to begin by giving ourselves permission….no-one else can do that for us..

You are so right, Gena! Only we can give ourselves permission!!
