In 2001 I decided to paint a cardinal for my Christmas card. It is traditional I know, I guess I had to get it out of my system. I haven't painted too many birds, but I did find this fun to do. The square format proved to be an expensive postage experience. Because of the odd size, the US PO charges extra postage, not a good thing. I did this format only one other time, again expensive to mail. I'll never do that again!
