I call the cardinal a forest ruby due to the way it stands out like a gem against the fabric of interwoven tree limbs, twigs and branches. Yet it’s also a most welcome guest to any backyard bird feeder for the color and melodious music it brings.
This original painting titled “Forest Ruby Cardinal” is painted on a solid block of wood nearly an inch thick with the image continuing around the sides giving more dimension to the piece.
The painting mounts in a 9.5" x 8.5" hand built stoneware frame with leaves impressed into the soft clay, then after firing, stained with liquid iron oxide to reveal the shapes and veins. The framed artwork rests on a 15” black metal easel designed to display the piece on any mantel, shelf, counter or special niche in your home or office. Perfect for anyone fond of our feathered friends that bring fascination, music and allure into our lives.
