    This painting expresses O’Keeffe’s spiritual and emotional ties to the West Texas landscape. In 1916, while she was teaching in Canyon, Texas, O’Keeffe wrote a letter to Alfred Stieglitz:

    The plains—the wonderful great big sky—makes me want to breathe so deep that I'll break—There is so much of it… It seems so funny that a week ago it was the mountains I thought the most wonderful—and today it's the plains—I guess it's the feeling of bigness that just carries me away…
