My Name Is Georgia: A Portrait by Jeanette Winter
Synopses & Reviews
Georgia Oand#8217;Keeffeand#8217;s Hawaiian tour celebrates natural beauty and powerful artistic convictions. Georgia Oand#8217;Keeffe was famous for painting exactly what she wanted, whether flowers or skulls. Who would ever dare to tell her what to paint? The Hawaiian Pineapple Company tried. Luckily for them, Georgia fell in love with Hawaii. There she painted the beloved green islands, vibrant flowers, feathered fishhooks, and the blue, blue sea. But did she paint what the pineapple company wanted most of all? Amy Noveskyand#8217;s lyrical telling of this little-known story and Yuyi Moralesand#8217;s gorgeous paintings perfectly capture Georgiaand#8217;s strong artistic spirit. The book includes an authorand#8217;s note, illustratorand#8217;s note, bibliography, map of the islands, and endpapers that identify Georgiaand#8217;s favorite Hawaiian flowers.

Masterful artist D.B. Johnson captures the famous surrealist painter Magritte by telling the story of his mischievous hat! In this playful and innovative romp, readers can alter the artwork with four transparent pages, adding to the surrealism and whimsy of the experience!and#160;
"Everything we see hides another thing, we always want to see what is hidden by what we see." and#8212;Rene Magritte
D.B. Johnson writes andand#160;illustrates the surreal story of famous surrealist painter Rene Magritte and his very mysterious (and mischievous!) hat. While the art reflects some of Magritte's own work, the text sets readers on a fun and accessible path to learning about the simpler concepts behind Mr. Magritte's work.
This delightful picture book captures the playfulness and the wonderment of surrealist art. Four transparent pages add yet another level of surrealism to the illustrations as pictures can be altered with the turn of a page.
From the time she was a young girl, Georgia O'Keeffe saw the world in her own way.
At night she climbed a ladder to the starlit sky to await the sun. She walked in the hills at daybreak and in moonlight. She gathered bones and rocks, and brought them home to paint. And she always knew what was in her heart--to be an artist.
