  1. You do amazing watercolors! I love the cardinal, it is special to me because my father loved to point them out to me when he saw one. Now, that he passed away, whenever I see a cardinal I think of him.
    Just lovely, thank you for sharing

  5. My favorite bird too and you've done this one proud, Nora! By the way, I received my painting in the mail on Friday and it is even more beautiful in reality than it was on the screen here. Who knew? I love it and can't wait to get it framed and hung. I think my close second on favorite (looking) birds is the blue jay.

  18. We don't have these birds in the UK. I am very jealous that you have them visiting your gardens. I adore the light quality you captured and the real cheeky feel he has!
