Hi Liz! I'm trying to catch up with any new followers. I can so relate to moving south with horses and cats (and dogs and a pet steer). I've been here 20 years and though I love the winters, summer is something to endure. (I moved from upstate New York).I love this cardinal painting. So much life in the pose of the bird, and great energy in how you painted the background.
Patrice, Thank you for the lovely comments! I'm so enjoying your work. It's feels like it comes right from you heart. Happy creating!
