Seasonal bird – 9

Magical cardinal (5″ x 6″ acrylic on Arches paper)

I started doing a fun series of birds in December. I plan to post one per day for the “Twelve Days of Christmas” with a short poem from Tom for each. Hope you enjoy!

Not so elegant am I
but patiently I wait.
There’s magic in my wings: I fly
the mistress of my fate!
