Cardinal in the Garden is a new painting of mine. Last week I spotted a male and female cardinal hopping about on our roof; there will be baby birds chirping in a nest nearby soon. Cardinals are such striking song birds. On Mother’s day I felt like painting a new song bird since I was thinking about mom.
My parents loved to garden, dad transplanted eight or so dogwoods from the countryside and in the early spring the yard was gorgeous with those dogwoods in full bloom and pink azaleas below. The songbirds that gathered on the bird feeders in in their garden kept my parents entertained while they sat in the sun room. This new painting is in honor of mom and dad who through their care and love of the natural world around them passed that love on to me. Thank you!

Thank you Tammie! Thanks for stopping by!
Love it Heni! Cardinals are so striking and so is your painting.
Wonder if those dogwoods are still there on North Dixon?
Thank you Melissa, I’m heading to Columbus in June perhaps I’ll stop by and see what the garden looks like now.
This cardinal has real personality!
