Lorrie #52 and #53 - In Vitro, Ex Vitro

In Vitro, watercolor 8 x 10 inches

Ex Vitro, watercolor 8 x 10 inches
Bright colors, yes! This pair of paintings is homage to (and humor for) people who work with cells in the laboratory. In Latin, in vitro means literally "in glass" -- meaning in a glass flask or a Petri dish as shown here. The liquid that many cells thrive in is a pinkish-orange in color when it's the proper degree of acidity/alkalinity. For the second picture, in Latin ex vitro means "out of glass" which is depicted and, well, just being silly ... hehehe.
