So my cousin Joanne, who lives in Long Island, also has a brilliant red Cardinal that frequently visits her back yard. We decided, Joanne & I, that it is the same Cardinal that visits between our homes in Long Island and Boston. Of course, we made this up. But we have a good time believing this. I am going to visit with Joanne and her family in the next few weeks. This painting is a present for her. Right now I am looking out of my kitchen window and I see the woods but Mr. Cardinal must be in Long Island!
