Volume 3; Issue 1

The wealth and beauty of the images we receive inspired this all-visual art issue. We hope you enjoy the provocative primitive works, the brilliant folk art style, the fanciful realism, the colorful abstracts, and the representational artworks from the mind and brush of the painter and through the lens of the photographer, from the backyard to the farthest reaches of the world. The artists in our medical community share their memories, their political statements, their search for balance and connection, their whimsy, their dreams, and their joy.

As always, I hope you are inspired, provoked, and given to thought by this issue.
