Here’s the final painting going to the 5th floor of Children’s Hospital Colorado in Denver.

All the floors at CHC are represented with an animal.  The 5th floor which houses Orthopedics, Rehabilitation, and Neurology has the buffalo as it’s animal designation.  With the buffalo being such a strong solid animal, it makes sense that such strength is necessary to rebuild the body.

In keeping with a “kid’s toys” theme, you see Green Army Men with their yellow construction helmets rebuilding this buffalo using Lincoln Logs and an Erector Set.

As per the frog painting, I’ve got “Wall” on the back wall blueprints as a little private honor to my dad who spent 60 or so years of his life working in a hospital.
