Cardinals are so beautiful. But just like yours they always stand out even more beautiful in the winter in the snow. Beautiful detail on the cardinal and love the snow and the wonderful textures on the trees and branches. Excellent. Nancy

Oh my goddness. I do love this red bird. I left this comment to the end becaue I want to go sleeping with this image in my mind and his songs in my ears.Birds are all what I always wanted to be. There's one on the back of my backyard that sings for me everytime he sees me hanging my washed clothes and we develop a complete conversation. T ake care and be happy among birds. Kindly, Isaura

Love the cardinal. It's the state bird in Illinois. I never tire of looking at any bird actually, except for crows & ravens.

Do you have a favourite season to portray? Summer flowers? Spring lambs? Winter snow? Do you have a season in which it is easier for you to paint?
I can see you really enjoyed doing this Kathleen...a beautiful happy semi-abstract...you make me feel I should try something similar sometime, just for the joy... view answer
