Really excited to share my new painting of a Cardinal!
The idea for this piece came when I was asked to participate in the RED HANDED show being held at Cyclelogik on Friday, Dec 6th 2013. At first, I couldn’t think of anything that I could contribute. The artwork being shown has the colour ‘red’ as a theme and needed to be no bigger than 30 x 30 inches. Red is a really difficult color to incorporate into my style of paintings, and I definitely didn’t have anything that small on hand. I also was busy trying to come up with an idea for a painting I could use as a Christmas card. (This is a crazy time of year! Am I right?!)
Then, while driving to the mall for Christmas shopping, I thought of a way I could do both! A Cardinal!
Really happy with the way it turned out! And already looking forward to painting more birds in 2014!
