Painting Cardinals on the Birch Tree in our Backyard

Prompted by the cool winter evening breeze,
the two cardinals in the backyard,
And an amazing Christmas carol from 1582,
I couldn't help but paint!

These two cardinals and many others, 
are regular visitors in our backyard throughout the year

Love the angelic voice of Andrea Alonso in this particular rendition of Personent hodie
You can get the song on iTunes

This is a painting on Canadian birch wood

The male is singing ...

And the female is listening 

As the winter evening turns to night
