I grew up in Michigan.  I loved watching the birds who came to our gardens and trees in my family's back yard.  This one and his mate were spectacular in the winter against the snow. 


I never would have thought to paint one, though, until a special request came in last week. I "googled" Cardinal on the Internet, and he is called northern cardinal (Cardinalis cardinalis).


I'll deliver some cards to Made in Chico tomorrow and he will be among them.  I thought I would add this pretty guy to my Etsy site today too.


For now, he is perched on a branch of almond blossoms because I had them in my archives.  As we approach the cooler months, though, you can look to find him on pine branches or maybe a bush with berries.  He will be fun to feature in December.  We have big plans for this pretty bird.
