After painting this one, I went on a search to find out if cardinals really do mate for life. The consensus among birdwatchers and article writers is: it’s complicated. They apparently do choose a mate for their lifespan but both the male and female might occasionally have a little side dalliance without anybody getting their feathers ruffled over it.


I took my art booth to my hometown Christmas Market Extravaganza this month and the cardinal painting turned out to be the star of my offerings that weekend. It was a nice surprise to hear how the red birds evoked so many memories of loved ones.
