"Perfect Promise" Oil Mosaic Nautilus Evolution by Amy Tuso Arizona Daily Painter

Gallery Wrapped 12"x12"x1.5" Canvas

I am fascinated by the nautilus and the evolution of its life.  This creature is self-sustaining within its shell.  As it grows the nautilus shuts the chamber behind him and moves into the more comfortably fitting chamber it creates and so it goes...on and on...moving forward, closing doors behind, growing, sustaining, enjoying its existence, inching ahead until the final release into the ocean and subsequent nautilus heaven.

If only humans could accept the footsteps and pathways necessary to sustain our life...without fighting the flow...just go with it and accept the evolution as the true blessing that awaits.

Please stop by my website and sister blogs at and to view more of my art and the artwork of my friends.

Have a blessed day...Amy
