Over the next few years I will be completing a project that summarizes my undergraduate education in science using paint. This is the start of something big! Here’s a rough draft of my thoughts behind a painting that will represent the 20 amino acids used inside the human body. I’m going to come up with a system to represent their different characteristics using color & shapes. I will need to categorize them based on reactivity, acidity, and geometrical form.

AA 2
nonreactive vs. reactive
AA 1
acid vs. base & weak vs. strong
AA 3
