New - Red Makes Me Happy

Finally, the top requested bird at the craft fair, the cardinal. It is the state bird (here in Illinois) and so easily recognizable. When I look out in the backyard in the dead of winter at a sheet of white snow, I smile when I see this little guy at my feeder. So appropriately, I named this piece, "Red Makes Me Happy." He is not shy at all, how can he be with his bright red plumage. I will look out through the snowflakes and count as many little red poofs throughout the trees as I can. And he patiently waits in a nearby branch while his girlfriend visits the seed, such a good guy.
