Presents, in brief text and illustrations, the life of the painter who drew much of her inspiration from nature. Told from the artist's point of view, this is a quiet but intense look at the life & work of Georgia O'Keeffe. Annotation. From the time she was just a young girl, Georgia O'Keeffe viewed the world in her own way. While other girls played with toys and braided their hair, Georgia practiced her drawing and let her hair fly free. As an adult, Georgia followed her love of art from the steel canyons of New York City to the vast plains of New Mexico. There she painted all day, and slept beneath the stars at night. Throughout her life Georgia O'Keeffe followed her dreams--and so found her way to become a great American artist.
