After 3 weeks of working hard on repainting the yellow kiosk information booth, she is once again alive and full of color.
I added new butterflies and a red lady bug..
This piece of art was on the wall of a very busy homecare office I worked at. While on the phone trying to staff difficult patients, It was one of my “special places” to meditate to. At times, I would imagine a cup of tea, and myself in the painting- sometimes in the hammock, sometimes in the soft wrap on the lounge chair. I would soon have a feeling of peace and tranquility. I believe this feeling benefited my patients and nurses as well as myself. I bought the print from that company when I left, and it is on my wall now; still bring peace and tranquility at the end of a hard day. As a Holistic Certified Registered Nurse, now teaching online to RN-BSN students about the values of self care to students for themselves and those they care for, I contacted Eileen Seitz, the artist, for permission to post this print on the classes’ webpage. By using Eileen Seitz’ artwork I want to share the feeling of care and concern for patients to my students. In conversation with Eileen this is how she conveyed to me what she does- an artist’s version of aesthetic caring if you will using her medium “With definite intention of placement of colors and line I am manifesting art and when a nurse is there for their patient with intention and direct touch, the creative healing energy will be passed from themselves to their patient.”
