Title:
Seasonal Notes
Abstract:
Seasonal Notes
Conference Sponsor:Sigma Theta Tau International
Conference Year:2001
Conference Date:November 10 - 14, 2001
Author:Smith, Anne
P.I. Institution Name:Madonna University
The artwork includes four note cards that depict the four seasons. The original paintings are 8-1/2 x 11 watercolors created in the context of a retreat entitled Journey to Spirituality Through the Arts. The watercolors have been reduced and reproduced to serve as “Seasonal Notes”. The cards as displayed on the attached color copy will be matted and framed for display. The presentation will be enhanced by a non-intrusive, soft playing CD of a recent production of Vivoldi’s Four Seasons. The synergy of the mix is seductive. My experiences as an aspiring artist are influencing my perspective on nursing practice and education. The depiction of the four seasons facilitates the expression of holistic communication demonstrating continuity of the cycle of the seasons mirroring the cycle of life. I experienced new insights and wisdom as I recently uncovered these watercolor sketches done five years ago. I relished the serendipity of discovering that the scenes depicted the continuum of the seasons. I did not recall the workshop instructor making this pattern explicit. One thing I clearly do recall was experiencing a deep connection with my mother who had been an accomplished artist. I had enrolled in this artistic endeavor at the first anniversary of her unexpected death. The process of art making has served as a therapeutic healing endeavor with special impact for the clients, families, students and communities that I serve.
