Last Monday I came across a picture in our local paper of a female cardinal. I'd found it while waiting for my daughter to finish at the doctor's office. I'd been working on my first poem- the first in a long while- so I already had a pen and paper in my hand. Inspired I began to draw the cardinal. I had barely closed the outline when my daughter emerged from the office.
Today my computer had issues so I picked up the pen and paper to add finishing touches to my cardinal. Pleased as I am with the outcome I think the cardinal needs more feather detail and plastic surgery on its beak. I guess that's to be expected from someone who has no art training in their background.
