Let’s Talk About Beauty

By Tina Christophillis

Feb 14th 2012


Let's talk about beauty.  Let's talk about what makes you come alive.  Let's talk about the heart beating inside of you.  

What is your heart's desire?  What is joy?  What is beauty?

Let's talk about beauty.  Let's investigate what this means.  Let's create a new space for which you are safe to explore the possibilities.  Let's go one step further into a personal territory that only you know, only you have access to, only you can understand.  

To me, beauty is beginner's mind, simplicity, elegance, freedom.  Beauty is riding a horse and feeling the rush of wind on your face.  It is the joy of discipline, the surge of emotion, the unexpected wave of passion.

Beauty can also be strange, painful and disturbing.  It holds a lesson, a gem, a story, deep within a resevoir that may hurt to enter.  Beauty is your heart breaking, to pieces, to pieces.

And then you wake, evolve, walk stronger than before.

    Hi I'm Fotini 

    Welcome to my blog!

    I am a painter currently based in Greenville, South Carolina.  Through my work, I seek to communicate an internal narrative using traditional painting processes.  

    Here you will find information about what I am working on, recollections of my process, things that inspire me. I am asking questions about art, writing letters to myself, reflecting, learning, growing, discovering.  Thank you for joining and supporting the adventure.
