Georgia O'Keeffe - Yellow Jonquils #3

From a poem titled "Still Life with Jonquils" from

Andrea Hollander Budy's book, Woman in the Painting

The painter knows

what not to execute, knows we bring

our own heat to the canvas,

knowing exactly how

these jonquils would look

if open. But not letting them.
