Waiting (Room)




(click to big)
Transparent Watercolor

Watercolor sketches from the waiting room at Assuta Hospital in Petach Tikva on the afternoon my daughter had her tonsils out. We sat in there 6 hours before her turn came for surgery...about 9 p.m. Long day for everyone.

The surgeon was really gentle and nice to her both before and after. We felt lucky our family doctor found him for her. It has been 11 days already and she is just now starting to be able to speak a little. How long before she can sing again??



What Dr. Rosenzweig (sort of) looks like.

Hope your daughter recovers quickly. I can't believe you had to wait so long, she must have been so hungry! Nice studies!

Hope your daughter is feeling better soon. I love the ones you did in the waiting room, really gives you a feel for the moment, and I'm especially impressed because that's something I'd like to do ... have the courage to do that kind of work wherever I am (rather than doing most of it at home).

Regards from Northern Israel!

Not long ago my daughter had surgery (eye). An excellent capturing of the mood!

Thank you all! She is doing much better and is slowly starting to do voice warm-ups. Won't be long until we hear her arias in the air long before we actually reach our apartment building!
