Santa’s Songbird The Red Cardinal

Two ACEOs inspired by a Poem

The Red Cardinal

I was approached by a poet writing a children’s book using a poem she created about a bright red bird.  She sent me some stanza’s of the said poem and wondered if I might be inspired to create ACEOs with her poem in mind.

The poem “Santa’s Songbird” is about a blessed Red Cardinal, a North American bird rather like the Green Finches of the UK but with feathers of a vibrant red colour.

And so here he is, in all his glory.

World of Colour

Not so much blogging this week as I have neglected words for colour issues and other technicalities on my website.  I struggle with choosing colour  for my website background as I think the artwork images should do the work really,  just like an artists portfolio should actually  speak for itself.  I get the feeling that my preference for black is not terribly popular, although really it is difficult to tell.  Feeback from anyone prepared to look is welcome, the more the merrier.  Let’s hope I am going into a purple patch so to speak to reflect my chosen colour !
