This painting is the second of my 2014 Christmas Cardinal series. Western NY (Buffalo area) got slammed and I mean slammed with a major snow storm. My heart is broken as about 13 people are reported to have died from this storm. Sadly, more could be discovered as five feet of snow in less than one day shuts down roads and leaves those drivers stranded.
Yesterday, where I live (Rochester area of NY) a few inches of snow fell. For about an hour though, it was coming down thickly and I thought about complaining. Because of my addiction to watching the birds at my feeder, I've seen them endure harsh winter weather with determination and grace. They are an inspiration to me, so instead of voicing my complaint, I gratefully started supper.
