Artist: Ginny O'Brien and four pediatric patients receiving treatment at Roswell Park Comprehensive Cancer Center.
Description of Buffalo: Our buffalo was painted in-clinic as a collaborative effort by four pediatric patients ages ranging 4 to 8 years. Each young artist selected their favorite colors and with Ginny used their individual expressive painting styles to cover various sections, with the team colors of the Buffalo Bills highlighting the overall look of our buffalo. The buffalo is approximately 18" long and 12" high and made of terra cotta.
