Celebration Of Healing Paintings and Book
A CELEBRATION OF HEALING — The Book
PAINTINGS BY SAL BROWNFIELD with STORIES BY EVE HOFFMAN
A Celebration of Healing is an art book, a book of stories bringing encouragement and confidence to those impacted by breast cancer and other serious illness. It is neither a cancer “how to” guide nor a Hallmark card – rather a book giving permission to laugh, to cry, rage and to know one is not alone. The twenty-one paintings and narratives build bridges between the physical and emotional needs of patients, families, friends and the medical community. They become a part of the healing. A Celebration of Healing includes a wide range of breast cancer experiences and demographics. Reader after reader, including those with different kinds of cancer, have commented, “I wish I’d had this book when diagnosed. These are my stories, my stories!” Others have suggested “A stack of them should be in every doctor’s waiting room.”
A CELEBRATION OF HEALING –Selected Paintings
“This art is a non-clinical, non-judgmental, non-intellectual stimulus which resonates on a spiritual level. It is not “art therapy”, art itself is the therapy. ” Sal Brownfield
Celebration paintings are shellac and oil paint on canvas and 5′ x 4′. The backgrounds represent contemporary stained glass windows and when placed together create a sense of sanctuary. The figures have been abstracted, so they are everyone instead of precise portraits.
