Nucleus No. One

I was planning to share a photo today, but at the last minute I decided to re-process it. So, instead, here’s… another… nucleus (Nucleus No. Two here). Have a great weekend, everyone (I’m off to re-launch Photoshop).

Tungsten

The circles were meant to represent electron orbitals. And Tungsten’s atomic number is 74. Other than that, your guess is as good as mine. This is the sort of thing that happens when I stare at my computer for too long.

Nucleus No. Two

It seemed appropriate to post some mixed media today… especially since it’s the model’s birthday on Saturday!

Have a great weekend, everyone! And happy birthday, Annabelle! I love you!

Evasive Action with Dick and Jane

Come, Dick. Come, Jane. Come, come. Come and see. Come and see this weird*** painting (then duck and cover like you really mean it)! Yeah, so clearly my painting draftsmanship could use a little work, but… well… I’m on it. Give me another 30 or so years and these suckers might even pass as… passable! Now where did I leave my haz-mat suit and geiger counter again?! Oh… and I think we’re out of T.P., too (that’s just great)!
