From Dr Eichbaum: “This representational abstract watercolor—of houses with joining paths surrounded by complex contraptions—may be seen as a metaphor of walking with a partner through life’s complexities; or, in medicine, of walking alongside a patient through illness.” 

Dr Eichbaum is a Professor of Pathology, Microbiology, and Immunology at Vanderbilt University Medical Center and a Professor of Medical Education at Vanderbilt University School of Medicine in Nashville, TN. He was born and raised in Africa (Namibia), where the vast, timeless landscapes were at once harshly real and abstract in their sweeping shapes, lines, and colors. This instilled in him a lasting love for watercolor as the medium that could best capture the translucent subtlety of these landscapes and their abstractions. He has studied watercolor with numerous prominent watercolorists in the US and abroad. His works have been sold and exhibited in the US, Europe, and Africa. As a physician, he finds watercolor (a “temperamental medium”) a way of surrendering and re-centering himself, and a way of “paying attention” to the world.

More of his work can be seen on page 21.
