Original watercolor painting of a gallery of brain cells. These are based on the work done a few years ago by some Harvard and MIT researchers with mouse brain cells (you can google “Brainbows” for lots more information).

Brain Cells 1 is an original watercolor, made using a wet-in-wet technique. After I draw a grid on the paper, I paint an individual square, wait a few seconds, and then add a second color of wet paint. The paint “bleeds” naturally, creating either a “cell” with awesome natural fractal patterns or a big old blob. If the former occurs, I wait a few more seconds and add another color. Then I do this a bunch more times in different colors. To make the really skinny bits, I used a toothpick dipped in paint.
