    Went to the Georgia O'Keeffe with Rhona. Took lots of shots from the balcony of the Members Cafe (she's a member). Great view. DPOQuattro. Stunning exhibition, by the way, and really inspiring to Rhona.

    Here's what she drew/painted afterwards, taken from a photograph she took of rocks near the Forth Bridge. She rattled this off in two hours.

    Fine top image of a common scene and gorgeous drawing/painting from the hand of Rhona. I am impressed.

    That is a classic image of the big city, I never tire of looking at that view. Different perspective to mine taken from the lowly peasant's balcony. :D

    That was a great exhibiton, I am glad you and Rhona enjoyed it. Great picture by her too, she has real talent.

    What's wrong being a peasant, you even find them in London occasionally, coming from the far north:D No not north-east!:cool:

    Ah. Opportunity missed, or at least delayed. I'm sure I'll be back.

    Cracking view and fabulous drawing. I can see that she was inspired. Must get to that exhibition, if not in London then in Berlin.

    Oh, it's a wonderful exhibition. I came away a big fan. The whole family is. Susan spent some time on the Lawrence's farm where O'Keeffe did many of her classic paintings. She and Rhona are hatching plans to get back there some day.

    The exhibition also has photos by Paul Strand, Ansel Adams, and her husband, Alfred Stieglitz, showing how clearly she was influenced, at times, by photography.
