Hey gang, here it is! My Autumn Cardinal, the final print in my 2010 Seasons print suite, as we follow our cardinal friend through the falling leaves of an Autumn day.
Here’s the background story on this series: We have lots of Cardinals here all year round. I love looking out of my window and seeing their amazing scarlet red color jumping out from wherever they are, and whatever they are up to. Autumn Cardinal is a part of my Seasons series of prints. This is the eigth print in series of seasonal prints that I’ll be releasing. Ready? Here’s the mind-blowing part = there will be 4 per year. Crazy, right?
This year for the Seasons series, in 2010 I am doing things a little differently, rather than making a new image for each season, I’ve decided to follow the same bright red fellow in the same scene, across all 4 seasons.
And finally, here for Autumn Cardinal, in honor of the my favorite season, our little red fellow is enjoying the changing leaves and bright colors of an Autumn’s day.
