A Bare Tree in Winter

"A Bare Tree in Winter"

Oil on canvas

Mary T Shannon, MSW, MS

"This piece was inspired by a client who wrote about the harsh winters while
growing up on a farm in the Midwest. Because I specialize in using art and narrative
in my private practice, I am inspired almost daily by the creations of my clients.

"As an artist, author, psychotherapist, and specialist in narrative medicine,
I am able to bring all of these elements together to provide patients
and clinicians with a unique blendof therapeutic healing."
