Cardinal series offered for sale.

Cardinals appear when angels are near or so the saying goes. Whether or not you believe cardinals appear in time of need, cardinals symbolize hope and love and we all need love and hope especially this Christmas, but really, any time of the year.

These particular cardinals have perched on branches decorated with shimmery beads. The snow that has fallen glistens in the moonlight.

Each cardinal is ready to roost on the soft snow as night beckons this magical bird to slumber on individually adorned branches.

The details of Birds and Beads series.

Birds and beads series is painted entirely in acrylics. The sides are painted either Christmas red, metallic blue, or deep forest green.

All have been varnished with Liquitex artist quality satin varnish.

Added texture, coppery or golden metallic paints, shimmery paint have been added to enhance the background for each cardinal.

The cardinals are a one-of-a-kind delightful gift for the bird lover, for anyone who has lost a loved one. Think also of the hosts of many Christmas gatherings and bring them a very memorable gift too!

    • I was surprised too…I have discovered that I like painting birds so there might be more in the future. Then again, I have so many interests that I never know what I will be painting next! I am enjoying your photos of your travels in Australia. Thank you for sharing.
