Width: 9"   Length: 12"

Materials/Techniques: Hand-dyed fabric with a piece of rust-dyed silk, and heavy thread painting.

Artist Statement: We have a bird feeder right outside our kitchen window, and during the winter, the cardinals that come to visit are one of the few bright spots in the yard. Often we’ll see several male and female cardinals sitting in the pine tree, waiting for their turn at the feeder.

Dedication: For my parents, Charles and Marion Schroeder, for whom every stage of life was interesting, even Alzheimer’s.
