Cardinal Inspired by C.S. Lewis by 

I love the C.S. Lewis tales, particularly “The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe.” This cardinal image reminds me of the two worlds the four children encountered when they stepped into the wardrobe and then stepped out into Narnia, the dreamy world beyond earth. I changed the background which the cardinal is looking toward into the dreamy other-worldliness of Narnia while keeping the cardinal on the branch in the tangible (more textured) material world as we know it. Hope I got my point across, Cardinal Inspired by C. S. Lewis. If you’ve never read Lewis’ seven book series, The Chronicles of Narnia, treat yourself to some of the best stories ever written!

    A truly handsome little guy.
    Why do I get the feeling that some passage from one of the Chronicles of Narnia would go
    nicely into the space you’ve created?

    Stunning shot, Bonnie! So crisp and colourful. You know, sorting the loft out the other day – I dug out my old copy of the Lion the Witch and the Wardrobe! Dated 1972! Erhem…… :o)
