On Guard - Pastel, Animal

I'm keeping with the red theme and thought this cardinal on our bird feeder was perfect for this.  Pastels make the feathers vibrant.  We have several cardinals that come around.  This one ran off the Eastern Bluebirds that were there and just took over the bird feeder, hence the name.

On Guard, pastel on Pastelbord, 5 x 7 inches
This little painting is taped directly to glass and is ready to pop in a standard frame or sit on an easel.

The painting was donated to the Bastrop Fine Arts Guild to put under the Christmas Tree which is then donated to the Family Crisis Center for the Festival of Trees fundraiser.
