I started this piece a while ago when I felt like doing something different. Rarely do I do a human form. But I really wanted to make a piece that paid homage to my chosen profession. And so after a few drafts I came up with a veterinary technician stooping over a canine patient. The background is made up of pages torn out of McCurnin's Clinical Textbook for Veterinary Technicians, 4th Ed. Once this piece started coming together, I knew it was destined to be donated to the the Purdue Fall Conference auction to raise money for student scholarships and programs within the College of Veterinary Medicine. If you are attending the Medicine Mixer and Auction this week, you will have an opportunity to purchase the original! High quality prints are also available through Fine Art America.
