Red Verb, 4x4in

$60.00

4×4in original cardinal oil painting on a 1.5 in stretched canvas.

Two of the things I love most in this world are birds and poetry. Make it three things. I love the color red. So when I came across this poem by Henry Carlile, I knew I was ready to paint some more cardinals. 

I’m particularly fond of the second stanza– “like a red verb”. I’ve been noticing the cardinals in my neighborhood lately. Since we don’t get snow in Louisiana, even the less colorful females are easy to spot against the green of the trees. 

The Cardinal
Not to conform to any other color
is the secret of being colorful.
 
He shocks us when he flies
like a red verb over the snow.
 
He sifts through the blue evenings
to his roost.
 
He is turning purple.
Soon he’ll be black.
 
In the bar’s dark I think of him.
There are no cardinals here.
 
Only a woman in a red dress.
 

The sides are painted and the back is wired and ready to hang without a frame. The additional shipping price includes shipping within the U.S.A. Each painting is created and shipped out of Covington, LA.
