Irises

Not Vincent’s bouquets tumbling from a pitcher,

or his gardens of sword-shaped leaves and blooms

spilling off canvas, but these wife-picked flowers -

glass vase alone by the white wall,

plants I have been tending since childhood.

In Vincent’s Bedroom

In Vincent’s Bedroom

at his Yellow House in Arles, France.

Enter through the door to the right.

The guest room door to the left

is prepared for Gauguin, if he visits.

The walls seem skewed, because they are.

Giotto Blue

Giotto_-_Scrovegni_-_-36-_-_Lamentation_(The_Mourning_of_Christ)_adj

With canvas and paint set before me,

I would choose Giotto blue for this sky

that is a cathedral dome above me.

Spare no expense for the ultramarine pigment

for this Earthly chapel that surrounds me.

 

natural ultramarine pigment

"Nothing is less real than realism. Details are confusing. It is only by selection, by elimination, by emphasis, that we get at the real meaning of things."
It’s the birthday of American artist Georgia O’Keeffe, born in Sun Prairie, Wisconsin 11/15/1887. 
She went to Taos, New Mexico on a visit and fell in love with the desert. She felt that the thin, dry air helped her to see better, and she devoted the rest of her career to painting desert mountains, flowers, stones, and skulls.
