Final Piece
The subject matter of the painting is Petunia's. The Genres of this painting is landscape, because it is a painting of a petunia. This is a realistic painting done by Georgia O'Keeffe, because it is a painting of an acutal flower. O'Keeffe used the color scheme of light and dark colors. I think she chose the colors she did because it gives meaning and life to her art work by showing the simple life and color of a little petunia. The colors used are mixed to show emotion and feeling as well as allowing those who view the painting to have their own interpretations of the painting. The formal elements of this painting is very realistic and you definatly know what Georgia was painting. This artwork givs me peace and shows natures beauty. My favorite part of this artwork is the detail and blending of the colors.
