How do you define a masterpiece? According to the dictionary:
Masterpiece [mas-ter-pees, mah-ster-]
1. a person’s greatest piece of work, as in an art.
2. anything done with masterly skill: a masterpiece of improvisation.
3. a consummate example of skill or excellence of any kind: The chef’s cake was a masterpiece.
4. a piece made by a person aspiring to the rank of master in a guild or other craft organization as a proof of competence.
One artist who has inspired me to look at some of Nature’s own masterpieces with fresh eyes is the wonderful Georgia O’Keeffe.
O’Keeffe produced many pieces of art that are considered to be masterpieces during her lifetime. More importantly, in my opinion, is that her works are genuinely loved by the public.
Her use of bold shapes and warm colours reflect the natural curves and tones of the countryside and flora around her.
