By Frank Lee, MD

Dr Lee is a psychiatrist at the Redwood City Medical Center in Redwood City, CA.

He has no formal art training, having started to "dabble" during his second year of medical school.

He tries to visually conceptualize mood states in his artwork. This piece was painted during his

last months in residency on a found piece of Plexiglas at a time when there were anticipated changes

in his life and he wanted to capture things that seemed stable: the park, children playing, families conversing.
