From the time she was a young girl, Georgia O'Keeffe saw the world in her own way.

At night she climbed a ladder to the starlit sky to await the sun. She walked in the hills at daybreak and in moonlight. She gathered bones and rocks, and brought them home to paint. And she always knew what was in her heart--to be an artist.
