About the Artwork:
“This piece is the second in a series of bird paintings. The first painting, ‘Strange Magic’, created for the Curious Alchemy show, focused on autumn and the feeling of transition that season evokes. It was a very transformative time in our country and around the world, with a lot of uncertainty but also a sense of hope. This piece is definitely a late winter painting. I am feeling even more hopeful now, but also as though we are collectively holding our breath, waiting for the end of a year-long winter. I wanted to capture that stillness, and also the sense of looking towards the future.” – Johannah O’Donnell
