I got to see the wonderful Georgia O’Keeffe exhibition at Tate Modern last Friday. It was a lovely treat after a hard week of work.

It felt great to be looking at someone else’s work for a change.

O’Keeffe’s work is so gorgeous. The colours, particularly of the works painted in New Mexico, are so beautiful and evocative. I really want to go there now and be amongst the mountains. She really managed to catch the light and heat in here paintings.

It’s a really great exhibition with lots of works that I hadn’t seen before. There are also loads of photos from the time that are amazing. Some of my favourites were the ones of New York.

If you’re making a trip to London before October I’d recommend a visit.

I know I’ll be back!
