[Working Title] The Brain and Smoking, Part 1
20" x 24"
Acrylic on stretched canvas
Two chemicals in the brain which influence our mood are triggered when one smokes something with an addictive substance such as cigarettes that have nicotine. Opioids is one feel good chemical which contributes to positive feelings and calming pain. Dopamine is another feel good chemical
Though I usually post in progress pictures, my SD Card suddenly stopped working so I couldn't retrieve the files. Lesson learned to back up more often.
This painting is the first part of a diptych. The second half of this piece is of the brain of a non-smoker's experience with secondhand smoke.
I was working on another brain painting which was more involved before starting this one. That led to me wanting the composition for this one to be simpler and to the point.
