From the moment Mary Montague Sikes saw paintings by Georgia O’Keeffe, she was intrigued. She loved the colors and designs of the paintings created by the artist during her days living near Santa Fe, New Mexico. Over the years, Monti has inspired others with her love of color. She has taught workshops that focus on the O’Keeffe paintings and enjoys inspiring other artists to create work in the manner of the iconic artist. This workshop will focus on using floral close-ups to inspire. Sikes will demonstrate paintings she creates using her own photographs as working drawings. Students should bring a selection of floral photos they have taken.
