Cardinals in the Vine

With a light snow overnight, the feeders were swarming with birds all day!  So busy they were, I had to refill them all just before dark!  I found myself watching them often as I entered or left the kitchen, easily visible from the bay window.  I had to paint them, and since I've been using watercolor all month, I stayed in that path.  I think they are more difficult in watercolor and ink!  Never daunted by a challenge, I went in and painted two more - the third I'm very happy with.  Some days it just takes those extra strokes at the easel!  I think I'll be taking out my oils tomorrow, this snow is just too yummy to resist!  Painting number 1821 in 1821.
