4″ oil on panel
I don’t know why a cardinal would put his crest back. Is it like an annoyed or angry cat? Being a bit of a bird nerd I did some research. I learned sometimes they molt their crest feathers, so this might just be a kind of “bald” cardinal. I also learned about a very strong connection between cardinals and people who have recently passed. This connection between cardinals and spirits crosses many cultures. Since I started posting my cardinal paintings I have had a couple of people share cardinal spirit stories that were really powerful.
I love when putting my art out into the world, makes it smaller by sharing stories.
