often the cardinal is the first singer i hear as the dawn breaks and the sun begins to rise.

this original red male cardinal bird painting is the ideal addition to a mantle, side table, desk, or shelf. this textural, mixed media painting is done on a piece of hand carved birch wood and framed in an antique gold-toned metal frame from the victorian era. this is a continuation of the "objet d'art" series-the painting and the frame are considered a single piece of art, and the artwork was created for this particular frame. the frame is quite delicate and has gorgeous age, patina and detail with an art nouveau aesthetic. the deep gold toned frame is decorated with flowers and swirls and has a fabric and leather backing.

for the painting: materials are applied layer by layer and then allowed to dry before the next application. this gives the paintings a great amount of depth and detail. mixed media includes vintage postage stamps and paper, antique handwritten letters from the 1800's, and gold leaf. i recommend displaying in indirect light to protect the artwork.

size is approximately 3.25" in width, and 4.5" in height. the painting is about .25" in depth. all of my paintings can be handled. they look great on their own, or buy a bunch and display them together!

the perfect gift for a cardinal enthusiast, bird watcher, or avid red bird fan. great for a collector of the quaint and curious. an ideal addition to an electic, antique filled space and/or a nature lover's home.
