The Northern Cardinal (Cardinalis cardinals) is a striking bird. The males, with their scarlet red, black face and tufted crest are unmistakable. Many living in Eastern North America are familiar with this bird. Did you know it is also found in brushy places in southern Baja California, where it often seen near water. This cardinal is perched on a snow spruce (Picea) branch. It is one of the earliest paintings I rendered when I picked up the paint brush again at the end of my U.S. Fish and Wildlife stint. The original is an 11 x 14 inch acrylic painting. Is available an 4.25 x 5.5 inch note card or a 5 x7 painting. Other sizes available upon request.

Prints are on Canyon Infinity Arches Aquarelle rag paper and are shipped with a foam backing.
