The Healer - Original Acrylic Painting
This is a very direct piece of art with bold colors and an interesting subject.
This avant garde piece stems from my nursing background. I also painted it in the early days of the 2020 pandemic when fear and anxiety were high. The health system became overwhelmed and healthcare was exposed for the lack of preparedness and protections of their workers in various areas around the US.
Over the last several years I have questioned my commitment to my profession as I have been witness to greedy owners of nursing homes that don't actually give a shit about the people residing in their facilities or their employees. I have become disheartened over the years as I continued to be exposed to the ugly business that healthcare truly has become, profits over people. As well as the many traumatic experiences I have personally had taking care of my patients.
Original acrylic painting on stretched canvas.
No frame or hardware included.
