Cherry Blossom Percher - Red Cardinal Painting by Nancy Medina

Cherry Blossom Percher

Oil on Archival Panel

I took a little break from peonies this evening to paint one of my favorite visitors to Mom's feeder, the red Cardinal. Each time I arrive at the farm in East Texas, the first thing I do is refill the feeders and replenish the woodpeckers with homemade suet. The horses always stand at the fence and snuffle and whinny until I give them each a big bite of the peanut butter infused suet. I think this is their absolute favorite treat.

This is divine, Nancy!! Cardinals are so pretty, aren't they? I also love how you have some flowers in light and some in shadow. I didn't know your mom has horses! Does she have someone who comes in to take care of them? Or are they neighbor's horses?
