I absolutely love this theme you're working on - your sketches are awesome, and the quotes are great. I would love to have a copy of the book when you're finished! You should publish it. I really like the rainbow with the quote. That is exactly what I plan to do today - pick which color of the rainbow to slide down, and let that be my biggest decision. I need some relaxation!
Thanks for the beautiful inspiration.

Gosh, what an interesting quote! she didn't paint flowers like she hated them--:)
I love the softness of your drawing.

Too bad she couldn't afford models, but aren't we glad she decided to do flowers? You've done a beautiful one, too........

I, for one, am so glad she did flowers!!! Her work is so inspiring. I was in New Mexico on vacation and got to visit her studio...so nice! Your white flower is lovely!!!

She was right you know! I have always loved the sensuality and sexuality she conveys with her floral portraits. A big G O'K exhibit is coming to San Diego this month and through fall. I can't wait to go see it ....serveral times!
I really like the layout of this journal entry. Beautiful Annita!
