Chaffin, Lon W.



Since the early 20th century, the art of Georgia O'Keefe has inspired, challenged and delighted us. Today, her connection to the Southwest is simply understood. The desert's hills, sky, flowers and bones became a comfortable vocabulary with which she communicated. This music draws its creative breath from O'Keefe's work. Each of the three movements (I. Bones, Blue and White, II. Hills, Red and Gray and III. Music, Pink and Blue) explores a subject common to her paintings. Each subject presents a dichotomy of color.
