4.100: plasticity

watercolor on paper, 9x12"

Today's theme is change. Well. Okay, not change. Same. As in process, or action, or ritual.
If you know me, you know that human anatomy fascinates me. The brain in particular, ironically, takes up a hefty amount of this fascination. Neural connections, synapses, data organization, muscle memory, plasticity. The grooves left behind by repeated thought patterns. The new grooves etched into place each time I handle a new task, take a different route to work, solve a problem. I have no idea if I have captured any of that in this painting, but it gave me a couple hours to sit and ponder.

I think the only way you can change the world is to change yourself, one thought at a time.
