Christmas Cardinal, Pastel, 8" x 8", painted on Colourfix sanded paper

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!
