The stunning artwork of Georgia O'Keeffe is no more apparent than in her famous 1921 painting entitled "Blue and Green Music." Subtle and bold colors are captured in this musical representation of the artwork. Based on a single theme that is manipulated and varied throughout, the piece progresses from delicate mallet percussion effects up to climactic impact points for the entire ensemble. Ms. O'Keeffe explained her idea that "music could be translated into something for the eye." This piece translates it back into something for the ear.
