Red Hills medallion is inspired by painting Red Hills with Flowers, by Georgia O'Keeffe from 1937. Curvy lines of the flowers. Fascinated by contrasts in scale, Georgia O’Keeffe frequently juxtaposed enlarged still-life elements with far-off landscapes, as seen in Mexico. She continued this practice in Red Hills with Flowers, an image of vibrant flowers magnified and set against the red hills that surrounded her New Mexico home. The striking colors of the land intrigued her, and she later equated the area’s myriad hues with artist paints: “All the earth colors of the painter’s palette are out there in the many miles of badlands. The light Naples yellow through the ochers, orange and red and purple earth, even the soft earth greens.”
