Play Therapy Self-Portrait: Life

by Play Therapy Class Student

Play Therapy Self Portrait: Life

Play Therapy Self Portrait: Life

My play therapy self portrait started as an abstract combination of colors and shapes. As I worked towards the center, I began to reflect on my feelings towards my mother-in-law.

She passed away last year and I was extremely close to her. When I started working with the color red, I was reminded of her because red was her favorite color.

The more I thought of her the more the curved my lines became. As I worked towards the center, using gray and orange the more I arches I drew. In those moments, I envisioned her now. Faith was the pinnacle upon which my mother-in-law built her life.

Therefore, I imagined her in the presence of God living each day with joy knowing that she lived a good life and made a huge impact. Everyone that knew her speaks so highly of her. She had a love for her family, in-laws, and grandchildren that knew no end. I dedicate this play therapy self portrait to her memory and call it Life.
