This is another of my mother's beloved birds--the red bird, the Cardinal introducing the first springtime color after winter. This is just off the easel but will be available in a few days. Thanks to Wendy Castillo of Grapeland, Texas for permission to use her photograph as inspiration and reference for this painting.
