Cardinal on the Picket Line

This painting was inspired by my neighbor's aging picket fence. The pickets have reached that point in their lives where they're a little weatherbeaten, the edges have softened a bit, and they're a little mossy -- kinda like some people I know. Aged to perfection, or at least 'honest beauty'.

Anyway, I found inspiration in the these pickets and added a common songbird that's often under-appreciated.


And yes, I'll never look at ivy the same way again!
