Inspired by Georgia O'Keeffe's own descriptive letters, awardwinning author Kathryn Lasky imagines a day in the life of this legendary artist at her Abiquiu, New Mexico, home. Before the first shades of lavender color the morning sky, Georgia rises - eager to walk the rust red hills and discover images that she will later paint: a bone glowing white, the black wings of a raven against the gray sky, a slice of silver moon.

This fresh, imaginative approach, combined with Ora Eitan's spare, evocative paintings, invites readers into Georgia's world, revealing how this artist's creative process is affected by the natural world and small moments of daily life. A biographical overview of O'Keeffe's life, along with a reproduction of one of her paintings, extends this most unusual portrait of a beloved American artist.
