Susan was commissioned to create a work
of art based on a pattern derived from
optically anomalous crysta
l of 1,5-dichloro-2,3-
dinitrobenzene, to be used on the cover of a
special issue of Crystal Growth and Design,
Nov/Dec 2005, a publication of the American
Chemical Society.

The painting was then given to Michael McBride
in recognition of his achievements and
celebrating his pioneering work in the area of
crystal growth and solid state organic
chemistry.    

These paintings above are several of a series,
based on McBride’s optically anomalous crystal.
