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

November 13, 2011

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.

I did this painting in Graduate School. It’s mixed media on some wood from an old barn in upstate NY that my dad put together for me.  I miss it.
