This puzzle is such a great idea. I bought tiles for my mom, dad, and sister as a way for us to stay connected during the pandemic. Everyday I see my piece of the puzzle and think of them. I imagine them doing the same. How beautiful is that!

I was excited by this unique concept, and immediately thought of the friendship necklace I had with my best friend back in the day. I had so much fun with Joseph using facetime to choose my favorite tile. I absolutely LOVE it!

I've never heard of an interactive painting. After three months of quarantine and not seeing anyone, I was really glad to feel connected to others. I'm thrilled to be part of this project, and can't wait for the Zoom party.

I first learned of 'A Piece of the Puzzle' through my friend Paul. He was so excited and told me I had to get one. I've always loved puzzles, but never thought of one like this before. My painting hangs proudly in my kitchen, and I adore it!

These past few months have been challenging, especially feeling so isolated, but this artwork has made me feel part of something. My tile hangs in my bathroom, and it's the first thing I see every morning. It makes me so happy.

I have such a deep connection to my tile. I enjoy all my art, but when I look at THIS piece, I think of all the other people who I am connected to. I'm excited to meet all of them soon and put the puzzle back together! #humptydumpty

The colors of my tile are so vibrant. I can't image how we will all put this back together, but I am looking forward to it. Thank goodness for Zoom. I had never heard of it before, and now it keeps me connected, like this puzzle.

I have been following Joseph since I first signed up for Instagram. I have always enjoyed his art, but I had yet to own one myself. I knew this project was one that wanted to be part of, and it is so beautiful that others are too.
Cynthia / San Fransisco #54
This work is genius and couldn't have come at a better time. I've been searching for creative ways to feel connected and give back to others. My tile is so precious to me, and I am so thankful Joseph created it. I can't wait for the next puzzle.
