The record for most expensive art piece created by a woman.

When  was a kid I wanted to be an artist...and entomologist,paleontologist, Astronomer. Dreams die hard..
But anyways,I'm watching PBS about Georgia O Keefe, the Artist who lit up all the art magazines when I was a kid,Arizona Highways,National Geographic. She was familiar.

 Over a year ago her famous "Jimsonweed" painting sold for $44 million. Its priceless really..like the Mona Lisa,the new owner has a painting everybody in the world knows of. I can only wonder what O'Keffe's cattle skull painting would sell for. Iconic is an understatement.
