Acrylic on panel, 6 by 6 inches.
When Norwood Flynn Gallery director Mabel Peck told me about the upcoming small works group show for December, I asked if they wanted to hang something they already had or if they wanted something new. She said, "Do something wintry!"
That seemed as good a title as any for this one. Cardinals seem to be birds that love the cold, and their triangular head shape as an echo of the stylized pine trees was a composition I have been wanting to explore.
This is also on a panel, instead of my usual canvas. I'm considering using these panels as a ground for most of the work in my next show at NFG in September, 2013.
