Title: Bubble Chamber
Post by: delilah_bird on February 14, 2009 09:53:13 AM
I painted this for my boyfriend for Valentines day. It's based off of the image in my avatar which is from a bubble chamber experiment (for more info: http://teachers.web.cern.ch/teachers/archiv/HST2005/bubble_chambers/BCwebsite/index.htm (http://teachers.web.cern.ch/teachers/archiv/HST2005/bubble_chambers/BCwebsite/index.htm)). It's watercolor and ink. I guess it's not your typical Valentines day gift (since it's not pink and covered in hearts, although it has a good amount of swirls ;)) but I think he liked it (we're both science loving geeks).

It's in a 3" x 5" mat so I measured the paper to fit the frame and then measured out the mat space (that, combined with my lack of time, is why the whole sheet isn't painted--although I think I kind of like it better that way). There's also a blurry pic of it all framed so you can get the idea.





Let me know what you think!

Very nice!
I'd love to receive personalized art for valentine's day (although I'm the artist of the family hehe) I'm sure he likes it :D

Yay for science/art crossovers, although I don't understand this particle stuff at all.

I like it best before it's framed and perfectly rectangular. But it's very pretty and cheerful either way.

Beautiful work! And thank you for introducing me to the bubble chambers pictures. This is an absolutely stunning way of capturing data - and I stare at beautiful crystolography displays all day! You also gave me something to talk to my fiance about. So thanks again. :) I'm a biologist to his physicist so we can often times talk right past each other. But this is so neat! I may have to find some of these or borrow your idea (if that's ok) while we're decorating our new apartment. That way it won't be so heavily skewed towards to biology world.
