Isn’t this the definition of art?

One of our little patients made this masterpiece. Her perspective, from her hospital bed, showing doctors making their rounds: people from all around the world work here, together, to make a positive impact on her life and the one of many other patients.

This is an interpretation of something beautiful and meaningful, both for her and us, that combines skills and imagination. Isn’t this the definition of art?
