Beauty in Stillness
By Jody Williams
  

1     Have you ever taken the time to look at a flower? Georgia O'Keeffe took the time. At first, she saw flowers as small. Then, she stopped to really look at them. She saw all of the details. That is what she painted. She didn't paint them small. She painted the flowers very big. She became a famous artist.
