The Birds

by John McNaught

The oil paintings in this exhibition have all been created by Project Ability artist John McNaught. The Birds were made in John’s studio, at home, during the period in the pandemic when our studios were closed. 

These birds represent a lifeline for John – keeping him occupied and his mind at ease during some very difficult times. They remind us of nature’s beauty and the wonderful songs we can hear from the trees! Can you name any of these little feathered friends? 

Project Ability tutors work within Gartnavel, and our two organisations have had a great connection over the last several years; working to share ideas, artworks and inspiration with each other.
