A Grieving Nurse Finds Comfort in Her Painting

Inspired by a dream, Linda Schadewald, a career nurse, used her avocation, painting, to alter the way she viewed her mother's death from cardiac arrest twenty years earlier. Utilziing a rainbow palette of vivid colors, she turned the zigs and zags of her mother's cardiac readout into a depiction of her ascension into heaven, thereby transforming long-held grief into joy and exultation.

Since that day, as Linda explains in her story in the February-March 2017 edition of Mysterious Ways magazine, she has used her artwork for healing.
