Yellow Calla 1926 by Georgia O’Keeffe

Yellow Calla 1926

Updated: Nov 24, 2019

an interpretation by Cindy Camperlengo, 1996

Yellow Calla painted in 1926 by Georgia O’Keeffe, is oil painted on fiberboard the painting size is 9 and 3/8 by 12 and 3/4 the size is minute compared to the enormous impact the painting had on me.

A close-up of the flower is typical of O’Keeffe’s style, her style was unique; she had an exceptional talent for shaping her botanicals. O’Keeffe would crop very tight around one blossom using minimal background. Her art is more abstract than representational, for her images may refer to the real world but do not duplicate it the Yellow Calla is characteristic of this style.

The Yellow Calla is very symbolic of sexuality. First, O’Keefe’s edges are defined by the color green. Green is considered in art to be emotionally symbolic of envy. images create lines that direct your eyes to the focal point. The focal point is the center of the flower. Secondly, the diagonal lines give rise to the movement for your eyes as well as your emotions, for diagonal lines imply action. Your eyes move from there darkest lines converging at the bottom left to the center of the flower. Finally, the shape of the flower is where most of the sexuality is implied. the folds in the petals at the bottom left appear to form part of a woman’s anatomy the focal point is also part of the women’s anatomy which stands quite erect.

The artist creates the illusion of natural light which obviously graces this painting. Although the light source is not present in the painting. illumination is suggested by the lighter areas of painting and the vibrancy of the yellow.

O’Keefe reveals her nonconformity by being so bold with this high key yellow. I find the contrast of the green and the yellow appealing and particularly appreciate the values of green O’Keefe uses shading the flower so romantically. The depth from the shading causes her 3 dimensionaism. Her texture is bright, delicate, and smooth Georgia O’Keeffe is an artist to be admired and the Yellow Calla is a flower to be desired.

Addendum

Yellow Calla, 1926

an interpretation by Cindy Camperlengo, 1996

Although this interpretation was guided by research at that time in 1996, further analysis of this work may bring legitimacy to Georgia O’Keeffe’s contention that her flowers do not represent intimate parts of the women’s body. Instead Yellow Calla is a tribute to sensual forces and ecstasy of nature itself.

As testament to her authenticity during the first twenty years of her career her concept was based on finding the essential abstract forms in the subject she painted. Her later works were also fashioned to this model.

Her Quotes further define her:

“I often painted fragments of things because it seemed to make my statement as well as or better than the whole could.”

-Georgia O’Keeffe

This quote reinforces her abstract of nature premise.

“I know now that most people are so closely concerned with themselves that they are not aware of their own individuality, I can see myself, and it has helped me to say what I want to say in paint.” -Georgia O’Keeffe

This last quote defines her self-awareness, she displays genuine attributes.

The flippant analysis of the Freudian interpretations of her flower series diminished her concept of the abstract painting. In the 1920’s, Sigmund Freud’s theories became popular In the U.S., besides looking at art with an aesthetic value he postulated art is an expression of the artist unconscious thoughts or desires.

Myth and symbolism guide our thoughts as well, reading the title and descriptions on the lilies about the Greek Gods, it was said there is an association of the Calla Lily with Venus and thus with lust and sexuality.

Today I refrain from crediting such theories due to the many misnomers in the psychological assessments I have witnessed. I tend to believe a self-aware, genuine person for it is easier to know yourself. Look for my Blog on Myth and Symbolism Coming Soon.

I myself have studied/practiced medicine for 33 years. Although I have used natural products for 40 years. After learning how important what you put into your body is! So, I really take care of my children and myself!

Both of my children were born with special needs and I have done extensive research on special needs children. I will post what I learned works for their issues in the near future! I adopted both children who are siblings as a single mom. I could not have done it with out my moms help!

My mom is an angle, loves children and has taken in other peoples children; as well as, she has been there for all of her children during the worst of times. 14 years ago she came to live with me to help me with my daughter (a newborn) so I could work (at the time I worked on a medical surgical unit as a Registered Nurse, and Charge Nurse.)

Mom was with me for 12 years, her progression in dementia was slow and almost unnoticeable until my 2nd child’s birth! She was not able to care for his special needs. Yes, I knew about my son before he was born and I got to go to the NICU at his 1st day of life and sing to him. I was able to bring him home from the hospital because the birth mother lost her ability to do so.

Mom was diagnosed with Severe Dementia almost 5 years ago now. After all she has been through in her life I don’t doubt that had something to do with it. I am continuing my research with that in mind. I will publish what I have to date shortly.

May your Life be Enriched, May Knowledge of the Truth be Yours, May you Shine Brightly,

“This is what I did when I started experiencing symptoms of COVID-19! I took garlic capsules, vitamin C, and headed out for the health food store!”

The Covid-19, Corona Virus

The virus that causes COVID-19 is infecting people and spreading easily from person-to-person. Cases have been detected in most countries worldwide and community spread is being detected in a growing number of countries. On March 11, the COVID-19 outbreak was characterized as a pandemic by the WHOexternal icon

Risk Assessment

Characteristics of the virus

I.) How well the virus spreads between people;

II.) the severity of resulting illness;

III.) measures available to control the impact of the virus (for example, vaccines or medications that can treat the illness) and the relative success of these

IV.) In the absence of vaccine or treatment medications, nonpharmaceutical interventions become the most important response strategy. These are community interventions that can reduce the impact of disease.

nonpharmaceutical interventions:

  • Social Distancing keep a distance of 6 ft. between you and others,
  • Wear a mask if you are sick, if you must go out
  • Staying home if you or family members are sick
  • Covering coughs and sneezes
  • Wash hand frequently
  • Clean surfaces that are frequented by others

Risk of Severe Illness:

Early information out of China, where COVID-19 first started, shows that some people are at higher risk of getting very sick from this illness. This includes:

  • Older adults, with risk increasing by age.
  • People who have serious chronic medical conditions like:
    • Heart disease
    • Diabetes
    • Lung disease * Please note both natural remedies discussed in this blog also provide respiratory support -CC

Watch for symptoms:

Reported illnesses have ranged from mild symptoms to severe illness and death for confirmed coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) cases.

These symptoms may appear 2-14 days after exposure (based on the incubation period of MERS-CoV viruses).

  • Fever
  • Cough
  • Shortness of breath
  • Sore Throat
AMAZING GARLIC: Research now shows it has antiviral effect! Photo compliments of

Garlic

Multiple studies confirm that raw garlic has antibacterial and antiviral properties. Not only does it knock out the common cold and flu virus but is effective on both gram-positive and gram-negative bacteria (two major classifications of bacteria), fungus, intestinal parasites, and yeast. Cooking garlic, however, destroys the allicin, so you’ll need to use raw garlic to prevent or fight infections.

Studies carried out on the chemical composition of the plant show that sulfur compounds such as Allicin are important constituents of the plant. The Allicin compound does not occur in garlic until its crushed. (Londhe, et al, 2011)

My personal choice is purchasing high grade supplements. I found Super Strength Garlic + Reisi at 4.5 cloves per capsule. Most of your health food stores carry these high grade supplements.

CC

Although garlic has the potential to be used clinically in the treatment of some disorders, care should be taken regarding its usage with other medications due to possible drug interactions that might arise as a result (174). Consult with your Physician if your taking medication.

A. sativum has been shown to have antiviral activity. viruses which are sensitive to garlic extracts are the human Cytomegalovirus (HCMV), influenza B virus, Herpes simplex virus type 1, Herpes simplex virus type 2, Parainfluenza virus type 3, vaccinia virus, vesicular stomatitis virus, and human Rhinovirus type 2 (10). One study showed that Allicin-containing supplements can prevent attacks by the common cold virus (53).

antiviral activity of garlic in humans may be secondary to a direct toxic effect on viruses. It also enhanced NK-cell (Natural killer-cell) activity that destroys virus-infected cells (7).

Although garlic is believed to be a safe substance, long-term trials of reasonable duration would provide insights into the possible side-effects of different garlic extracts. The safety of garlic should be tested especially in pregnant or breastfeeding women as well as in young children (Budzynska et al., 2012; Dante et al., 2013)

Mayo Clinic has stated, “preliminary reports suggest that garlic may reduce the severity of upper respiratory tract infection.” The findings have not yet passed the scrutiny of numerous, large, well-designed human studies, so current results are classified as “unclear.”

Oil of Oregano

” Advancing from the sore throat I began to feel other flu like symptoms. You know that body weakness/ache just before the fever ensues and by the third or fourth day I was sneezing. Although the garlic and vitamin C had some effect, it wasn’t until I added the Oil of Oregano that I felt better. Fortunately, I picked several bottles up. This was more important to me then hoarding TP! Just in case I was under quarantine. I also hoarded a little vitamin C, Gummies. I consider them my candy.”

Oregano oil is an herbal supplement that’s known for its antiviral, anti-inflammatory, and antioxidant properties. It contains several potentially healing compounds, such as carvacrol, thymol, and terpinine.

Essential Oils of Oregano: Biological Activity beyond Their Antimicrobial Properties

Abstract

Essential oils of oregano are widely recognized for their antimicrobial activity, as well as their antiviral and antifungal properties. Nevertheless, recent investigations have demonstrated that these compounds are also potent antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, antidiabetic and cancer suppressor agents. These properties of oregano essential oils are of potential interest to the food, cosmetic and pharmaceutical industries. The aim of this manuscript is to review the latest evidence regarding essential oils of oregano and their beneficial effects on health.

Antiviral activity of the Lippia graveolens (Mexican oregano) essential oil and its main compound carvacrol against human and animal viruses

Abstract

Mexican oregano (Lippia graveolens) is a plant found in Mexico and Central America that is traditionally used as a medicinal herb. In the present study, we investigated the antiviral activity of the essential oil of Mexican oregano and its major component, carvacrol, against different human and animal viruses. The MTT test (3–4,5-dimethythiazol-2yl)-2,5-diphenyl tetrazolium bromide) was conducted to determine the selectivity index (SI) of the essential oil, which was equal to 13.1, 7.4, 10.8, 9.7, and 7.2 for acyclovir-resistant herpes simplex virus type 1 (ACVR-HHV-1), acyclovir-sensitive HHV-1, human respiratory syncytial virus (HRSV), bovine herpesvirus type 2 (BoHV-2), and bovine viral diarrhoea virus (BVDV), respectively. The human rotavirus (RV) and BoHV-1 and 5 were not inhibited by the essential oil. Carvacrol alone exhibited high antiviral activity against RV with a SI of 33, but it was less efficient than the oil for the other viruses. Thus, Mexican oregano oil and its main component, carvacrol, are able to inhibit different human and animal viruses in vitro. Specifically, the antiviral effects of Mexican oregano oil on ACVR-HHV-1 and HRSV and of carvacrol on RV justify more detailed studies.

https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3768712/

The two natural remedies chosen (Garlic Capsules and Oil of Oregano) worked for me! I am completely free of symptoms now. I stopped into my doctors office with mask on, and requested a swab for the virus on day 2. The swab was not available and the rep for it had not gotten back to them yet. So my doctor was not able to provide testing for me. So, whether this was the infamous COVID-19 or not I feel much better about caring for myself.

As a nurse working in the hospital I picked up numerous bugs. Nasty viruses, which laid me up for weeks. Sometimes I went to work sick because it was expected. Never got sent home? I am so glad I have moved on from hospitals, I did my time 30 years! I loved caring for patients, and now will do that by Blogging. So, send me your feedback. Let me know if you have had a similar experience.

At one point I had been sick so frequently I request the Tamiflu medication from my ENT who happened upon my floor. Love that man, we should have more doctors like him. The most important factor in taking prophylactic medicine or natural herbs is to take them as soon as the symptoms begin. I feel that is when they are the most effective.
