As if by magic, every March 19, hundreds of swallows have been descending to San Juan de Capistrano Mission after traveling all the way from Argentina to nest and spend their summer there. Or at least they used to. Because of urbanization and remodeling in the mission in the 1990s, the colony has set stop somewhere nearby.
We’re painting swallows this week because the day also coincides with the Spring equinox, and swallows have symbolized new beginnings. As the subject for our paintings, swallows are also a metaphor for the long journey we’ve all gone through during the pandemic.
