Georgia O'Keefe anyone?

Calla Lilies always remind me of Georgia O'Keefes beautiful paintings.  She was a master at capturing the essence of the simplicity of beautiful flowers.  I have not had much success with Callas but this one has done quite well.  It must be in exactly the right place because the one that is just 10 feet south has never done much of anything.  It is not a huge plant but delivers lovely blooms every spring and grows slowly but surely as the years pass.  Green leaves and long strong stems support a single velvety white bloom with a yellow stamen.  Does a flower get any simpler than the Calla with absolute perfection in form and beauty?
