Artist's Description

Each patient carries his own doctor inside him.
~Norman Cousins

Loomis Sanitarium was the second sanitarium ever built in the country.

THE MAIN FACILITY at the Loomis Sanitarium west of Liberty, NY, USA still stands, having only recently been vacated. Plans are afoot to make the entire complex a historic district.

The sanitarium became well-known as the destination of thousands of people between the turn of the 20th century and the early 1940s seeking a sanctuary from tuberculosis, one of the deadliest diseases in the history of mankind.
The center was a memorial to renowned Doctor Alfred Lebbeus Loomis, who thought up the idea of a sanitarium first in the Adirondacks with Doctor Edward Livingston Trudeau.

Textures have been applied…new texture techniques I am exploring to give a smoother effect yet, allowing the textures to filter in in selected areas. Multiple image layers incorporated with texture effects.
