This very large canvas depicts a bird diving. It was titled Spirit of the Storm but a later painting of Marian’s is also titled Spirit of the Storm. The two paintings are very similar in subject. It’s possible she called them by the same however I do believe I found a 1925 mention of this work and it was referred to as Bird of the Storm.
