My first thought was a variation on the goddess Sophia, or Wisdom. I envision it something similar to a watercolor I did awhile back for a friend when she got her Masters in Physics:
Julie: Mistress of Science
But then I got to thinking of another watercolor I did when our beloved dog Thor passed away:
Thor Greets Mother Nature
I did it in the style of Klimt and patterned it after a photograph of my sister and Thor:
I'm thinking of recreating Thor & Mother Nature, but more in the style of Mistress of Science.
Time to make some pastel sketches.
