#261 Cardinal


2.5"x 3.5"(ACEO) oil on artboard Sold

This little guy makes me smiles. Perhaps he's a baby cardinal? He looks kinda short, puggy and unsure of himself. There's something cartoony about it that makes me laugh.

This little guy looks like he may be up to something.

Just great, the way you captured his "cardinal-ness" with just a few well-placed strokes and simple shapes. You have a wonderful way of simplifying the subject while heightening the personality. So cool!

He's GORGEOUS! He has a slightly Taxi Driver feel about him, though his lines would be 'You paintin' me? You paintin' me?'...! Looking forward to following your blog!
