Brilliant colors, and I love the way you did the snow on the branches. It actually looks cold!

thanks Sharon!  Oh my, I love your praise about my paintings!  This was a scene actually in our front yard and we have cardinals who visit all year long.  The birds molt, and their most attractive colors appear in the fall/winter season so that they are so brilliant, they stand out in the white snow!

Oh wow, how lovely!  I'm seeing my work from a whole different angle, I also like how the colors are every so slightly enhanced, without affecting their accuracy!
