Georgia O’Keeffe

Famous for her abstract, close-up paintings of flowers, modernist artist Georgia O’Keeffe was a master of perception and vision. In an excerpt from a 1944 exhibition catalog, she wrote about how the beauty, detail, and value of something simple like a flower often goes overlooked in our busy lives. She wrote, "I'll paint what I see — what the flower is to me but I'll paint it big and they will be surprised into taking time to look at it." In other words, to fully appreciate the good things in life — from the beauty of nature to the joy of friendship — we have to take time to notice them, by choosing to give them our full attention.
