Georgia Totto O'Keeffe was an American artist... (wikipedia)

I've been absolutely terrified every moment of my life - and I've never let it keep me from doing a single thing I wanted to do.
To create one's world in any of the arts takes courage.
When you take a flower in your hand and really look at it, it's your world for the moment. I want to give that world to someone else. Most people in the city rush around so, they have no time to look at a flower. I want them to see it whether they want to or not.
I decided to start anew, to strip away what I had been taught.
I found I could say things with color and shapes that I couldn't say any other way - things I had no words for.
