A Cardinal You

Acrylic and watercolor on watercolor paper, April 2018

A blizzard came to Minnesota in mid April, 2018.
It was a Saturday.
I was cozily holed up in my studio apartment.
Snow fell steadily, peacefully, collecting on the windowsill.
I stood by the window and painted a cardinal
(inspired by a photo found online).
The cardinal, sitting on a snowy branch, pointed
with its confident beak
toward spring.
