On Its Way to Peoria

This piece from the project will be going to
Dr. Andrew Tsung at Illinois Neurological Institute
in Peoria Illinois.

New Collage Painting Shipping Off Soon to Pennsylvania

The piece above is a 30" x 30" collage painting on canvas titled,
Beauty and the Brain Series No 5
It will soon be on its way to Dr. Steven Toms who is the Director of Neurosurgery
at Geisinger Hospital located in Danville, PA
Dr. Toms was nominated by several of his patients; every one of them commented to me how
much Dr. Toms genuinely cares about his patients.
What a pleasure it is to create these pieces as gifts.
I love hearing from the doctors,
but I especially like hearing from the patients as they tell me their stories of healing and care.

For Dr Joung Lee Cleveland Ohio

Here is a photo of the next piece from the Beauty and the Brain Series still in progress on my working wall in my studio. It should be completed this week, and is set to go to Dr. Joung Lee, a neurosurgeon in Cleveland Ohio. This piece will also be the subject of an art documentary that will air on News 10 about my work. I will keep you posted as to the air date and time, and try to post a link to the video here too.

Check out the entry about the Neuro-Art Project that is posted in the following blog by Elizabeth Monroz (label Eileen and Scott, July 5th entry.)
I have copied some of it below for you:

Making Art from the Sarcoma Experience…
My dear husband, Scott, has been battling skull base Chondrosarcoma for 5 years now. It has been a difficult struggle for him, for me as his wife, and for our three children. I felt compelled to build something positive out of this situation, so I did what I do best – I made art.
As a way to honor select US Neurosurgeons, I have started a series of large, bright collage paintings called Beauty and the Brain. I select top-notch US neurosurgeons from nominations made by patients, caregivers, staff and other sources, and I give the paintings to these neurosurgeons as a gift of appreciation for their skill, compassion, and caring demeanor. The first in the series went to Dr Cully Cobb in Sacramento, CA – my husband’s neurosurgeon. The second was awarded to Dr Ossama Al-Mefty of the University of Arkansas Medical Center. He is known internationally for his pioneering surgical approach to previously “inoperable” tumors. The third painting in the Series went to Dr Chandranath Sen of St. Luke’s Roosevelt Hospital in New York City. It is a great blessing for me to be able to use my creative talent in this way. The doctors are quite surprised when they receive my letter telling them about the project, and that they will be receiving one of my paintings as a gift. I have not met any of them, except, of course for my husband’s doctor. One neurosurgeon wrote me a heartfelt thank you note, but really the thank you goes to the doctors, and the paintings are really from their patients, not from me. You see it is their patients who are appreciative of the doctors’ skill, expertise and care.
