Snowy Perch - Cardinal
 10" x 8"   acrylic
A cardinal perches on a limb as a snowstorm begins.  This bird is in a unique pose with it's wings and feathers fluffing out to insulate itself from the weather.  Unfortunately, we don't have these beautiful birds here in Oregon.  However, I have seen them when I have traveled to areas where they are common and I was able to use one of those birds for this painting.
