I like her just for her amazing and fantastic paintings that shock me deeply, not for her fame or reputation. What I want to do, if I have the chance to meet her, is standing beside her quietly and looking her when Georgia O’Keeffe is painting.

On the other hand, Georgia O’Keeffe is the one that always chases perfection. For example, in her life, Georgia O’Keeffe traveled numerous places, such as Mexico, Asia, Europe and so on. The purpose of her trips is to know if she was living in a right place that most suitable for her.

In conclusion, Georgia O’Keeffe, who painted various outstanding and distinguished works and chased perfection forever, is the one that I most like to meet if I could travel back in time. It is natural and logic because I like her very much and never have the chance to meet her.
