Paintings for Cottage Hospital

Four of my landscape paintings were selected and purchased as limited edition prints for Goleta Valley Cottage Hospital – two seascapes (Ellwood Shores Coast and Reflections at Hendry’s Beach) and two “inland” landscapes (Lake Los Carneros and Botanic Garden II). The prints will be installed in hallways at the hospital in summer 2015.

The paintings are part of the Cottage Health System’s Healing Arts Program. As described on their website, “Using visual arts in healthcare environments has become an international movement. The visual arts have been shown to enhance patient care, relieve stress for patients and visitors, and increase employee satisfaction. Evidence-based research shows that exposure to the arts reduces use of pain medication, increases compliance with treatments, and shortens the length of stay in hospitals.” It’s an honor to be a part of this program and I look forward to seeing all of the artwork in 2015! 🙂
