Art Sunday #99: Georgia O’Keeffe -Blue and Green Music


Blue and Green Music is a 1919 – 1921 painting by the American painter Georgia O’Keeffe.

Painted in her New York years upon the idea that music could be translated into something for the eye, Blue and Green Music is a work of rhythm, movement, color, depth, and form. It is also one of the paintings that was expressed by her feelings.

The painting uses colors that are both subtle and bold in order to capture the variance of tones that one would find in music. O’Keeffe described music as being able to be “translated into something for the eye.”  The painting is part of the Alfred Stieglitz collection, a gift by the artist to the museum in memory of her husband

I think this is the part where you are to write something clever and witty about yourself. I’m solidly locked in middle age and content with myself. I love to travel to see and experience new things, new foods and new drink. I also like to cook and bake mainly because I like to eat. And I found out that I’m pretty good at both. I'm not a professional blogger nor do I want to be. I'll leave that to others while I'll kick back and post whatever suddenly pops into my brain. I'm more spontaneous anyway. And the rest we’ll just kinda sorta figure out as we go along. Feel free to leave comments or even just to say "Hello". Find me at:

      1. It’s a Swedish classic song. But in Canada they play it as a jazz standard and then it is called Stockholm…something. The Swedish lyrics is about one of our county’s Värmland and how great it is to be and live there. Green forrest, clear water and so on.
