Donations for PMH October

Former resident donates artwork to Erickson Health Centre

The walls of the Erickson Health Centre are a little brighter thanks to a recent donation from a former resident. Vera Johnson, who was born in Erickson, donated a painting depicting a soothing scene within Riding Mountain National Park.

“As I neared retirement from teaching in Alberta, I became interested in painting. An oil painting course offered by a local artist excited me. My first attempts at painting were subjects that I drew from childhood memories. These were of my childhood home in Manitoba, my grandparents, their home and local places of interest. So, I decided to do a series of paintings related to the Park.

The painting is entitled “Family Fun at Clear Lake”. Johnson says it conveys feelings of togetherness with beloved family and friends and elicits a sense of relaxation by being by the waters of Clear Lake.

“On many occasions when I have visited hospitals where I live in Edmonton, I am always uplifted by the art work I see. My hope is that this painting will bring a smile to those who visit Erickson Health Centre.

PMH sincerely thanks Johnson for her thoughtful and insightful donation.
