"Intra Derma" (Within the Skin), by Leisha S. Medina. Layers of rose petals cover the canvas under the paint, symbolizing skin. Healthy skin cells as interpreted by the artist are painted in bright colors all over the canvas, in celebration of healthy skin. This artwork is a tribute to the artist's husband, who battles with psoriasis, and all those who hope for healthy skin.
