Georgia O'Keeffe is an American painter, famous for painting flowers. The interesting fact is, that she, actually, hates flowers, but she paints them because they are still and don't move, comparing to the real models.
She started painting because she understood, that it is the only way for her, to tell about many different things, when showing them through the form, texture and colour.
Personally, I really get these feelings, when looking at her artworks. It gives a feeling of something unusual, powerful and this is what makes her works very impressionable and gives them a special identity.
