Maria paints

When artist Maria Lanas spent time in the hospital with her father-in-law, Shapour,during his cancer treatments, she was inspired by the drops of chemotherapy medicine falling inside of his IV bottle.   She imagined the fluid mixing with his blood and later created a series of paintings called, “Infusions.”  She calls the paintings a gift from her father-in-law.  “It was a release for me,” she says.  “Art has been a good friend of mine.”
