Female Cardinal-Camera Critters


I LOVE this oil painting on linen by Minneapolis artist Eric Cornett!  If I had $1,600 dollars to spare, I'd buy it! Notice please that it is of a FEMALE Cardinal instead of a showy male.  It is so beautiful in reality!!
Too bad I did not win the recent 500 million dollar lottery.

  1. I like it too...also the fact that the artist chose not to paint instead, the brighter male. If you had won the lottery you would be too busy shopping to take pictures...not a good thing.

  6. I, too, prefer the female's coloring... I have a pair that live here in the summer and am always so happy when she shows up on the feeder...
