A painting of my favorite critter by my favorite artist. Here’s what she has to say about it:

I am convinced of a connection between arts education and scientific discovery. Also, I love science. Also, science gives artists endless material to play with AND understanding of how things like light work, giving us more tools to play with. Here are some of my paintings inspired by Volvox, a very beautiful algae that lives in freshwater… like Flathead Lake and the Ninepipes Resevoir.

There is lots more good stuff over at her blog…check it out!
