This messy thing called love
There are so many tangents I can go off on about this... Isolating just one strand would unravel the beauty. This painting invites you to dive in deeper and travel the course of love as it slips in and out of focus. I suffer to make sense and I do not do it well. In spite of regrets, self loathing, and feeling isolated, I know my capacity for gratitude as an exercise pulls together and knits the gifts I am blessed with into a beautiful whole. Amen for that.
#45 in 50 ways to Find Joy series 4 x 5 inches, canvas panel. (collection of B.C. Shafner)
Tilly Strauss is a New England painter recently relocated to the southern side of Miami. Her whimsical works both hide and reveal a domestic quietude with restless escapism. Contrived out of found text, poetry, paint and soul searching, her studio work is featured on the website www.tillystudio.com
Right now Tilly is taking a break from the daily painting to question her muse and teach others where to look.
