Male Cardinals in Autumn Dogwood - Giclee on Canvas or Paper - 12 x 16 only
This is the Virginia State Bird on the Virginia State Tree. But not the expected pair of cardinals on the springtime bloom of the Dogwood. I chose instead to paint two male cardinals in a confrontation in late autumn, with the green Dogwood leaves having turned a mix of reds, browns and greens with the distinct red berry clusters. Cardinals are interesting birds and can be found everywhere in Virginia from backyard bird feeders to rural farms.
