When I was a young girl I had a terror of snakes. After watching a movie about a snake venom farm this evolved into fascination. I had a beautiful silver snake bracelet that I thought brought me luck. Snakes are symbols of power, knowledge, healing and transformation in Christianity and myth. They shed their skins and grow new ones. Their venom is used in medicine. So here are two drawings featuring a snake.
Hospital doodle #9 – drawn after the weekly ward round.
Cloud Cuckoo Land
Hospital doodle number 7. There are a family of seagulls nesting on the rooftop outside my window; Sam, Silver who has a limp and Claude who is still a youngster. They peer through my window begging for scraps. Pigeons and wagtails also congregate. Watching birds all day long, I’m hoping I may grow wings too and escape. 😂 In my crazier moments I wonder if they are the reincarnated souls of patients who have died in this room…if the window opened wider they would definitely come in!
After ten weeks in hospital due to post Covid complications I’m waiting for a second operation. The last one was done while I was fully conscious which was not fun. This time they will hopefully knock me out!
So here’s my doodle called The Surgeon.
Here’s another one of my hospital drawings, watercolour pencil and marker pen on paper. I don’t have a title for this one yet. I think it has a fairytale quality. Apples are powerful symbols both in Christianity and in myths. Feedback very welcome 🙏
Here’s another one of my hospital drawings. Making art is a wonderful pain reliever! Better than drugs.
