"I am so touched by the courage, hope and faith some people have in times of terrible illness. You know, I often think of people in need of a transplant of an organ, when they lie down on the surgical table, surrounded by blinding lights and metal noises. I wonder what they think of besides themselves, their loved ones, the happy, sad, good or bad moments in their lives. Are they scared, or does the willingness to live take over the weak and sad feelings?

This painting illustrates heart transplant surgery, the historical moment in some people's life, the experience of a new and welcome second chance. The new heart enters in this man or woman who is so anxious to receive it and regain his or her loss. Is it a loss when something in our body isn't working properly and it must be replaced, or should we think of it as a gain."
