Winter Cardinal

Auction Closed. Sold via Buy Now $800. Next auction Monday, Jan 21. 

My neighbor’s kitchen table is a nice place to watch the world go by.

We were enjoying the abundant bird feeder activity last week after a snowfall.

Guess who made his grand appearance?

This handsome fella would be hard to miss, and I think that’s the way he likes it.

Thank you Chris and Nancy, for another great subject!

    I have been watching from our feeders also. The Cardinal is the most beautiful in the winter, although we enjoy them all year

    love this .. I am watching a pair of cardinals at and under my feeder here in Va. and just filled it up .. and put seeds on the ground,, have all kinds of birds today including a woodpecker.. we had an ice storm

    Every time I see a cardinal I think of my Mom. We designed our house so there were windows facing out towards our deck and bird feeders so she could sit at the dining table and watch the birds come and go.

    This is my favorite painting of yours, Well the chickadees from several years ago are a close second

    I had to look twice . I was sure this was watercolor, yet it’s oil. Hmm, well I guess I don’t know a thing about any of it. Lovely cardinal

      Thanks Cecile, the medium choice of any painting including mine, is in my opinion of secondary importance anyway. If an artist has something meaningful to say, (most important) they will find a way to say it. (less important)

    Warms my heart. When cardinals appear, angels are near. My husband died this summer.

    Love all birds, but cardinals are my favorite! Guiding angels from above! Thanks for your beautiful work!

    Cardinals are such a very pretty bird. Usually they are around in pairs. A male is usually around when a female is feeding. When cardinals are near and loved one is here.

    Cardinals are one of my favorite birds and red against a white birch background~perfect. Thank you for sharing your wonderful artistic interpretations for all to enjoy.

    This beautiful red cardinal brings hope to an otherwise bleak winter, here in Michigan. Without snow, the birds bring love of life…………..Thank you for sharing Peter…………..Judy Davisson Young

    This has to be one of my all-time favorites! Beautifully done, Peter. What a great Valentine’s gift this would make for someone.

    Jerry passed away Feb 2, 2019 and prior to that he said a cardinal will be his sign for us.
