Newest toy

So I got this microscope.....

and it's pretty awesome.

My plan is to paint a series inspired by the microscopic images I create.  The subjects of these paintings (what I plan to throw under the microscope) are yet to be determined -but I have a pretty good idea of what I want to do.

In the meantime, the microscope came with pre-made specimen slides.  I felt all sixth grade science classy as I ooohed and ahhhed over a 40x zoom of a housefly leg.  

I'll post a few images from the 'scope throughout this week, so stay tuned.
