These vast, open lands-like the overwhelming expanses of the ocean-often evoke superlatives and always excite the imagination. Artist Georgia O'Keeffe, who once lived here (in Amarillo and Canyon), reveled in "the beauty of that wild world" and portrayed the expansive luminosity of the Plains in her magnificent paintings.
