This is an oil painting of a cardinal I did for my mother in law for Xmas. I believe it was 12x12 square, on canvas.

This is great.  I love cardinals probably because I love red.

The cardinal is a beautiful bird, one of my favorites.  You did a magnificent job on it.

Thanks, everyone! My MIL loves birds, and cardinals are so pretty. So that was a good choice for her I thought. Smiley
