Fly Me a Rainbow

Name: Fly Me a Rainbow

Location: Birmingham

Created by: Jina Gelder Illustration

During the pandemic as life slowed down, many of us explored the outdoors more and noticed more of what we maybe took for granted or didn’t notice before. Fly Me a Rainbow celebrates the beauty of the natural world around us and gratitude that nature provides a brief escape from any anxiety felt during the pandemic. It includes the artist’s favourite garden birds and the rainbow we all painted on our windows to honour key workers.
