I painted this. I think it took me 4 months on and off to get it done. I'm pretty proud of it, but its not as awesome as my downy woodpecker painting. [link] Also, I fixed the beak up a bit in photoshop because I put too much white paint on it
Very stunning. The texture on the branch is perfect, almost looks as though I could touch it and feel wood grain. I love how there is nothing else in the background to distract from the contrast of the bright cardinal against the snow. Wonderful painting!
