Georgia O’Keeffe: Green Yellow and Orange 1960

Following the serpentine green lines
and yellow and orange shadings
of O’Keeffe’s abstract,
I find the smallest spot
of blank canvas.

One of her later works,
the recorded guide explains,
and I remember reading about
John Poling who helped her paint
as her eyesight was failing.

And I wonder
Is it still your vision
If someone else holds the brush?
When does the need to create
overtake the need to be the creator?

And what do you name
the canvas that escapes?
