Georgia first discovered her love for painting flowers while thinking about how people seldom seem to notice flowers due to them being small and unobtrusive. She wanted to bring more attention to them, so she painted them large ~ large enough to demand the attention they deserve: "If I could paint the flower exactly how I see it no one would see what I see because I would paint it small like the flower is small. So . . . 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—I will make even busy New Yorkers take time to see what I see of flowers."
