"The Waiting Room"

"The Waiting Room"

I was asked to do a series of compositions for my Family Practice physician, Linda Fox, MD. Each composition needed a fox in it per the request. Knowing Doctor Fox once wanted to be a veterinarian, the waiting room was inspired. This piece will be available for a limited time only.

This steampunk image is a bit of macabre humor inspired, perhaps, by watching too many "B" movies. There is a "sharp" contrast between the woman's outer beauty and the act she has apparently committed.
