Loved Ones are Near



This female northern cardinal is perched on a branch while enjoying a moment away from her nest of young ones.  More subtle in hue than her male counterpart, the female is colored in tones of soft brown and red tinged wings, crown and tail.  Legend has it that when you see a cardinal, loved ones from heaven are near.  Some feel that when you see a female cardinal, it means something good is on the horizon and it urges you to follow your passion and dreams.  This is painted with Golden acrylics on a gallery-wrapped stretched canvas that is 20×20″.  The painting is varnished for longevity, is signed on the back, and is wired and ready to hang.
