Once again, a piece that I didn’t even know I’d completed until I checked my portfolio! What a surprise! Another domestic bird, the Cardinal.. to be part of a series of how many I’m not sure.

    I’ve always really loved the astonishing beauty of the cardinal. I love the soft white splashes on the wings, so delicate and so affective

    Oh so beautiful painting. This was my late Mom’s favorite bird. How she loved seeing the Cardinal against Cleveland’s disappearing snow as Spring would bow in. It always brought a smile to her face and statement; "Look kids there’s a Cardinal perched on the railing on the front porch! Thanks for sparking that memory for me.

  • You’re very welcome..
