I was out taking some photos this evening, and ended up taking some macro shots of cornstalks. Some of the resulting photographs reminded me of Georgia O’Keeffe’s work, specifically her flower abstraction paintings. The up-close cornstalk images with their wavy leaves, streaks of color, and organic depths reminded me of some of O’Keeffe’s iris paintings. If I had the time I would try painting some of the corn photos in her style.
