Letters: Discovering Art

Prockop, Leon M.D.

I enjoyed the Speak Up essay “Discovering Art,” by Daniel C. Potts, M.D. (March/April 2009). My mother died of Alzheimer's disease about six years ago. I am also a “child of the Great Depression” (born 1934). I am hoping to learn icon painting but am concerned that my continuing work as a full-time faculty neurologist will blunt my ability to paint the concepts (compassion, love, humility) that one tries to create in the faces of the saints and other religious figures.
