Original artworks by Hunter Valley Artist Amy O'Donnell
'This series has been inspired by my daughters journey with anxiety and in turn, realising the extent of my own anxiety. We have worked step by step together to embrace gratitude, self-love practices, and mindfulness.
The series was painted in a carefree/childlike approach. With the focus being on the joy that is found in the time spent painting, rather than focusing on the end product and whether or not it will be liked. It's taken me many years to discover that the best paintings always come from a place of freedom and enjoyment.
This series has also shown me how much I rely on my painting to rest and calm my mind. I am so grateful I have this and appreciate it more than ever before.'
