A Collage of Nordic Music Inspired by Georgia O’Keeffe

When I was looking up Georgia O’Keeffe in Wikipedia I found this painting called Blue and Green Music that she painted sometime in-between 1919 and 1921.

Blue and Green Music, a painting by Georgia O'Keefefrom Wikipedia: 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. 

This reminded me so much of an electric turquoise river I saw while flying over Iceland combined with the coast of Denmark taken on the same flight.Aerial shot of a turquoise river in Iceland from a commercial Icelandair flightAbove is the river in Iceland, below the Danish coast.Aerial shot of the coast of DenmarkThen there was this oddball shot: a geometric shape, a road perhaps, somehow imprinted on the wind-blown snow on desert sand somewhere over the States on the way to Mexico.Aerial shot of a geometric shape imprinted on the wind-blown snow over the sand and rocks of a desertThe combo image, inspired by Georgia O’Keeffe, is a collage of shots that I have called: Aerial Music from the Nordic Countries.aerial of music from the north countries

    • It’s so dangerous for me to even catch a glimpse of a Georgia O’Keeffe painting – I immediately try to mimic her. However, putting together this collage showed me how to copy her but still maintain my own style. It was a really exciting discovery for me!
