Beautiful Blue Bugs is an original watercolor of various forms of streptomyces, a type of bacteria that form the basis of many antibiotics. Under a microscope, they look like beautiful snowscapes or islands with white-sand beaches. So they're pretty and helpful: what's not to like?

The deep, various blues give it the look of a cyanotype, while the white accents lend it an ethereal quality. Just right for the lab, office or home.

This is a one-of-a-kind original, not a print. It was painted using a wet-in-wet technique, which allows the paint to "bleed" freely, creating new color combinations and amazing fractal patterns.

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