Original oil painting by Sarah Soward. Oil on deeply cradled panel. 20x10 inches, unframed.

12pt. Font is a heavily impasto painting. Thick, deep palette knife strokes of white create a rollicking texture for the painted tardigrades to inhabit. As you likely know, tardigrades are the smallest animal on Earth. In order to clarify that point, I painted them here at scale to 12pt. Times New Roman font. I decided to make it look as though the letters were banged deep into the fantastic texture of white paper, enlarged so that the tardigrades would show up at all to the human eye without the aid of magnifying equipment.
