"Kathy's Cardinal"

I was inspired to paint a cardinal for an April project on Yahoo's Watercolor Workshop. Easy decision as the Cardinal is my favorite bird, however finding a suitable photo was a challenge until I found a wonderful photo taken by Kathy Bishop on the Morgue File and obtained permission from her to use it. I flipped the image and cropped it for this study. Thank you Kat!

About Me

My photo
As a child I began designing my own clothes while in 5th grade. Grandma let me use fabric from her stash and showed me how to use the treadle machine. My love for art and the creative began at that point, always having a current project of some kind. Painting has provided a unique creative outlet for me that I am thankful for, an exciting journey where there's always something new to learn.
