ABC Wednesday - O is for Onley, O'Brien and O'Keeffe

Once again it is time to check in at ABC Wednesday. This week our focus is the letter O.

Artists for this week are:

Lucius O'Brien (1832 -99)- an influential 19th-century Canadian oil and watercolour landscape artist

Georgia O'Keeffe (1887 - 1986) - American artist, best known for her beautiful flowers, as well as for "rocks, shells, animal bones, and landscapes in which she synthesized abstraction and representation." (Wikipedia)

Toni Onley (1928 -2004) - A Canadian artist, best known for his watercolour landscapes and complex colourful abstracts

Be sure to visit the other great participants here.

Always enjoy your artists for the week! I'm particularly a fan of Georgia O'Keefe! Hope your week is going well, Bev! Enjoy!

Love O'Keeffe, but the others are new to me.

I think these are my favorites! Love each of these paintings although I was only familiar with O'Keefe's work before I read your post!

I've been posting two entries to ABC Wednesday - one on my photo blog and the other to my art blog The Pagan Sphinx. I was going to concentrate on Georgia O'Keeffe but I ran out of time to compose the post. I'm glad you thought of it!

I do have an entry to The Pagan's Eye, though.

Oh, I love Toni Onley, and the earlier Canadian as well, but mostly Toni Onely. Wonderful, wonderful.

I don't know how I missed your O post this week, but I guess it is better to be late and never.

I enjoyed the O artists, and the different styles of painting. But my favorite is the Oinatchouan Falls. I love pictures of waterfalls.
