The Art of Palliative Medicine - 2017 Semester 2

All things important to me

For my reflection on this visit, I decided to do a piece of art. Mrs X attends the hospice once a week, and her most enjoyable activity there is craft. I thought it was quite incredible that, despite having limited time left, this group of patients were prepared to try new activities, as I so often hear, “I’m too old to learn that now”. This is why I chose to do an artwork using watercolour pencils. This is a medium I have not had much experience in, and I am certainly not an artist, but I was inspired by Mrs X’s “give it a go” attitude. I too greatly enjoyed experimenting with the watercolours and learning new techniques.
