Hi there, this is one of the things I have been working on lately. I purchased these cut off wood pieces and as you can see I am having fun painting birds on them. I will be doing a show the first weekend in December at the Cincinnati Women's art club in Mariemont and I plan to have some there. I put them on Facebook and people seem to like them, sold several already. Cardinals as I understand it are a sign that your deceased loved one is visiting you when you see them.
