About this scrapbook page:
Made for MaryWonder's challenge, not sure if this classifies as surreal art though...I love my work, but the last few years the health care field has become so busy and extremely stressful...the extra hands represent the extra helping hands that would be nice when we do our job, the one hand is suppose to be wiping my brow. The wings are actually part of a universal health care logo, and sadly, the flames represent the burn-out that so many feel in this line of work
Design credits:
So many put their heart and soul into their work and the work is so very rewarding, but the stress can lead to burnout, which is where I'm headed...this was a very sad page for me to do. I often feel like I am wearing a mask trying as I hide frustrations with the workload etc. from my residents
