This original piece, "Spring" using chalk pastel on textured paper evokes a sense of warmth, life and playfulness. The art-work (13"x11") depicting an infant playing with a stethoscope makes use of vibrant strokes and a color scheme that I believe captures some of the more endearing features of children, a certain courage and curiosity frequently encountered by professionals within pediatrics. The infant stares back, briefly yet frozen in time, offering its attention as a gift to the viewer.
