Lauren Tilden, figurative paintings in egg tempera
“Could we with ink the ocean fill
And were the skies
of parchment made
Were every stalk on earth a quill
And every man a scribe by trade
To write the love of God above
Would drain the ocean dry
Nor could the scroll
Contain the whole
Though stretched from sky to sky”
