THE GEORGIA O'KEEFFE MUSEUM

The only museum in the world dedicated to an internationally known American woman artist, the Georgia O’Keeffe Museum, in Santa Fe, New Mexico, opened to the public in July 1997, eleven years after her death.

"One of the most significant artists of the 20th century, Georgia O’Keeffe (1887-1986) was devoted to creating imagery that expressed what she called “the wideness and wonder of the world as I live in it.” She was a leading member of the Stieglitz Circle artists, headed by Alfred Stieglitz, America’s first advocate of modern art in America...

The Museum’s collection of over 3,000 works comprises 1,149 O’Keeffe paintings, drawings, and sculptures that date from 1901 to 1984, the year failing eyesight forced O’Keeffe into retirement."

LINDA MASON - MAKEUP FOR AGELESS BEAUTY - BOOK RECOMMENDATION

MORE THAN 40 COLORFIUL: CREATIVE LOOKS FOR WOMEN 40 and OVER
by makeup artist Linda Mason MAKEUP FOR AGELESS BEAUTY published by Watson-Guptill in New York.



Wonder what your favorite Supermodels such as Carol Alt, Paulina Porizkova, or Kim Alexis look like now? How about rocker Joan Jett? This book is wonderful! It's easy to follow and you will get it. As we get older enhancing our looks is desirable and sometimes we can be very creative, but within reason. Overly made up looks age us so what we want is makeup that shows our understanding of our looks and our sophistication.

In the mood for some new makeup, it's time to reassess and understand the art of application!

MISSY ASKS YOU ! ARE YOU A SUGAR MAMMA?

SUGAR MAMMA?

I know a woman who cannot afford to be, but when she sees her much younger man, she blushes, her heart tries to fly out of her chest, she has a difficult time saying no. She has sometimes suffered because she gave to much and he took. No, they were not having sex. Their relationship seemed to be the world's oldest crush.

Is the SUGAR MAMMA a manifestation of feminism? Is it simply role reversal?

Or have women who had a little more always been willing to give to another, with love?

GEORGIA O'KEEFFE : MISTRESS OF THE MONTH : AUGUST 2011



Georgia O'Keeffe is an interesting Mistress because, like CoCo Chanel, it seems that when she became a widow and made her fortune, she may have become the one who kept a man (or at least was very generous), a much much younger man, Juan Hamilton, who came to work as a handyman, and turned her onto sculpture.

But first this great American artist, became the mistress of married Alfred Stieglitz. They lived together for 6 years and then married, despite their 23 age difference. After some time, she began to live separate of him in New Mexico. Theirs was a partnership initiated and driven by the fine arts. She sketched and painted and he was a photographer.
