Aggie.



Illumination:
The Painting of Georgia O'Keeffe, Agnes Pelton, Agnes Martin and Florence Miller Pierce.
OCMA, 2010

Both the works above are by Agnes Martin. I love the name Agnes. Not because of Aggie Deyn, but because I think it's a lovely looking word. I like the A next to the g and the nes. If I ever have a small girl I would consider Agnes - Agnes Spriggs - that's a good name. Although I have said in the past that if I did birth a girl I would try and give it back. I know little boys can smell funny but big boys seem like they would cause less worry than big girls. I know I was a horror and single-handedly sent my mother grey.
