Mad Scientist {Original Artwork}


A couple weeks a go a parent presented me with an original piece of artwork she completed for me for Teacher Appreciation Week. The artwork, in pastel and acrylics, is of a mad scientist (Is it ME?) and a few investigative students in the science lab. I knew it had to be framed.

The colors in the art go perfectly with the vibrant colors of the science classroom. I especially love the name tags given to the mad scientist and one of the male students, Ish which is short for her son’s name Ishmael.

I finally picked it up from the framer, and it is perfect. The frame is blue dyed wood and the mat is a bright lime green.

I hung the artwork above one of the lab sinks and will be perfect for a long time to come….well, until retirement!
