Summer time and the tweetin’ is easy. You are looking at Summer Cardinal, my summer 2010 art print, following our cardinal friend into the long sunsets of a summer evening.
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.
Summer Cardinal i is a part of my new 2010 Seasons series and it’s the 3rd print in the 2010 seasonal-themed set that I’ll be releasing. Ready? Here’s the mind-blowing part = there will be 4 prints in this series. This year for the Seasons print series, in 2010 I am doing things a little differently, rather than making a completely different & unrelated image for each season, I’ve decided to follow the same bright red fellow in the same scene, across all 4 seasons so we can follow him as the seasons change.
And here for Summer Cardinal, in honor of the softer, breezier and warmer life of summer, our little red fellow is enjoying the gathering sunset of a lovely night ahead in a pink twilight.
