This painting draws together images from neuroscience (neural connections in the brain) and Buddhism (the lotus), to express the blissful aura of the well-meditated brain. Recent scientific research indicates that the practice of meditation produces physical changes in parts of the brain associated with memory, sense of self, empathy and stress. Although it's highly unlikely that meditating on the truth in the lotus will actually cause your neurons to look like this, it's a fun idea to express artistically. In soft but vivid shades of blue, from cerulean to indigo.

The painting was done using a batik-like technique. I drew the designs with masking fluid (a kind of runny rubber cement), then painted it with watercolor. After it dried, I removed the masking fluid, exposing the white of the paper.

Overall size 11 x 14 including white mat. Standard size for easy framing. Signed. Absolutely unique.
