How Georgia Became O'Keeffe: Lessons on the Art of Living

How Georgia Became O'Keeffe: Lessons on the Art of Living - Karen Karbo "There is a bit of a bitch in every good cook" - Georgia O'Keefe
"A marriage is a civilization, the couple at the ceter of it, king and queen. When it falls apart, the entire population suffers."
I love the way this author writes. This isn't just a dry biography. The author artfully weaves in lessons/ stories from her own life, while giving us more than a glimpse into Georgia's complicated life. This really is a telling of Georgia's life in the context of imparting lessons from her life - and those lessons stand the test of time. My take away from this book - be who you are and be interested/ passionate about something (it makes you a more intrigueing person, worth getting to know). This author has also written books about Coco Chanel and Katherine Hepburn - and I'll definitely be adding those to my reading list!
