Winter Cardinal

I love all the nuances of color and the interesting
composition of this painting. All of the intricacies of
 someone who really knows how to paint.

This lovely card was printed from an original watercolor
 painting done by my mother, V. duBois-Boyle. Even though
 she is nearly 85 yrs.old, she still paints, and is an exhibiting
 artist in the Denver area and a member of the
Colorado Watercolor Society.

My mon has been an artist for as long as I can
  remember. As a child, her easel would be set up in
 our family room from time to time as she
would work on mostly oil paintings at that time.

I have printed this lovely painting onto heavy,
feather-edged cardstock cards.

I have added just a smattering of ultra
 fine crystal glitter to give it that frosty look.
These cards come with matching
feather-edged envelopes.

I have listed these cards as an individual card,
sets of five, sets of ten and sets of twenty and they
are available at my etsy store along with many
other all occasion greeting cards, paintings
and much more. All of my cards are blank inside.

Serenity you


  1. Good morning, Kathi! I am a follower of your blog and there isn't anything in your Etsy shop that I don't like! I guess because Christmas is coming up, I love anything with snow! :D :D Love the cardinals (one of my favorite birds).

  2. What a wonderful giveaway! I am a follower & this is my fave item in your etsy shop (although I really like the Mountain Meadow set of cards too...)

    Gorgeous painting


  3. Hi Kathi, I would love to be entered in your give-away. And I am following now. Your Mother was so talented! I love that you are making the art into cards. I love them all so I guess I would pick a "collection" set. There is nothing more beautiful on a white snowy day than to see a brilliant red cardinal perched on a green pine bough. ~ Lynn

  4. I'm a follower and the cardinal and chickadee cards are my favourites! We don't have cardinals in the UK and I love the bright colour!

  5. I follow you & would love to have the Blue Butterfly Pendant from your shop!

  6. Hi, I am already a follower and fan of your artwork, it is lovely. I would love a set of the Morning Ride or these, Winter Cardinals..that little sprinkle of glitter is just the perfect finishing touch.

  8. wow you do amazing work,

  9. My mother loved cardinals. Her Christmas tree & her house was always a cheerful red with all the Christmas cardinals she had. I set up a tree of cardinals every year in her memory & always buy cards with cardinals on them. So I would love to win these beautiful cards! A painting made by your mother no less! I'll be framing one of them to add to my Christmas decor if I win. :o)
