In today’s exhibit, we’re proud to present something very special. We’re still waiting for the certificate of authentication, but are certain that the curator of the collection from whence it came is reputable. They had a feedback score of 3,472. That’s a Red Star, folks! But we can’t let a thing like paperwork or verification hold us back, so let’s respect the honor-bound sanctity of eBay and move ahead.

Behold this important transitional piece from late in the career of Georgia O’Keefe! Observe the contrasting colors as they dance sensually on a springy bed of deep forest green. The organic shapes seem to invite you inside to share their warmth and wonder. It’s simply astounding how she was able to transfer her vision from an inanimate canvas to a living one. From paint to yarn, the progression is as natural as her visual representations of the holiest of holey – the flower and the cow skull.

It’s amazing what you can do with crochet, isn’t it?

    I must make that vest.

    I’m thinking shocking pink centers with funfur around the outer edges. With metallic silver diamonds (you know, to add that special touch of kink!)

    Please, if you love me (and you should. I’m totally loveable!) let me know the stitch/name of that pattern.

    The pus-yellow centers were a poor choice. They look very, very sick to me. If yours is that color, please, see a doctor!!!
