Beautiful work; I really like the modeling of the cardinal and also your background.

Spring! Pah... Rub it in! The only difference between when I took this pic and now is that now there's two feet of snow...


Also, it was warm that day. It hit -14f last week (-27c or so) and it only just started getting above 10f in the afternoon.

One day recently it shot up to above 30f.

I wore a t-shirt outside.

So yeah, you and your cardinal can... uh... enjoy the weather. ;)

We don't have cardinals in the Netherlands. Lovely painting of a beautifull bird!

Thank you Leslie, Yorky, Michelle,Arl, and Oban. Those who don"t see cardinals in your area,I'm sorry. The male is red, and female is brown with some red. As for cold weather we here in Fl. Had an Ice storm this winter and mixed snow. Very unusual, but happens every decade or so.


Back deck of Ice storm that closed schools, stores, roads and all bridges here for a couple of day. Many with out power.Of course it didn't pile up http://www.wetcanvas.com/Community/images/18-Feb-2014/70668-Ice_storm_5.JPG
