This year is my 10 year reunion from graduating from University of Rochester.  I made this painting around the time of graduation and gave it to one of my besties (Christina Boice-Mallach).  I wonder if this painting is holding up better than me after 10 years.

Endosomes and Centrosome

I never get a chance to present this image, but I based the painting two posts before on it. Its an electron micrograph of the centrosome (the two little circles) in a nuclear invagination with electron dense endosomes surrounding it.  It is pretty nerdy but I also think its a beautiful image.

Tobacco Bowl

I started this painting in 2004.  It took me 7 years to finish it.  But, I recently finished it and gave it to a lovely friend who was celebrating her 28th birthday.  I started this with a sketch I did at the Tobacco Bowl in Iowa city of the two guys on the right playing chess and the one on the left watching them having a cigarette.  It’s a mix of watercolor crayons and acrylic on canvas.

So good. Go see it, I loved the adaptation from Charlotte Brontë’s classic novel. I want to read the novel again now.

Who says Worcester has nothing to offer? Not me. Go to the Worcester Art Museum (AKA WAM) and check out their exhibit Art Since the Mid-20th century. You’ll see stuff by Andy Warhol, Pollock, and Alice Neel (some pieces included below).
