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 soothing shades of purple, lavender and hyacinth blue.

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.

    I love this scarf. It’s really lovely & a fine sibling to my blood cell scarf. I’ll get lots of use out of it this autumn. Artologica’s art is the best & makes for great gifts, too. 😻
