Cardinals appear in my life frequently so when they do, I paint them. In this composition I worked to create thick layers of paint in a loose fashion. The predominate color is red with muted colors surrounding the birds.  

This piece is on a gallery wrapped canvas with finished edges. It comes ready to hang.
