Cardinal in The Pines Watercolor Painting
When my aunt told me she wanted some cards to send her business clients and that she liked the cardinal in the snow image, I figured she wanted the one I had already painted. As we talked further, I realized she had a very specific image in mind and this is my interpretation of that. The red cardinal is a symbol of messages brought to us from those who have passed before us. This one is in remembrance of my Uncle Ed. “Cardinal Snow” and ”Cardinal the The Pines” make a lovely pair. For me they bring together my two “homes”; North Carolina and The Pines of Northwest Arizona.
