I love cardinals. I think they are so beautiful! I regularly see a couple near my home in Ottawa,Canada....a flash of red over my head, through the leaves or on a snow covered branch. They always make me smile and give a nod to nature for creating such beauty. Painting this little guy was indeed a pleasure!
