Post 330: Cardinal Day Spa

Painting Name: Cardinal Day Spa

I recently went to Rehoboth Beach and Lewes, Delaware with a friend of mine for a couple of days. We stayed to the Avenue Inn and Day Spa and had a wonderful time including 5 o'clock happy hours, walking around Rehoboth and over the sand to the water, and partaking of facials and massages, seafood, and relaxing.

Medium: Acrylic
Size: 8x8 Stretched Canvas
Edition Year: 2023
Framed?: No

What Brought About this Painting?

Sometimes you just picture a painting in your head and start drawing it then throwing color at it according to your vision. A cardinal (or any bird, really) taking a bath is a funny thing to watch as they cautiously approach their chosen day spa spot, then shake, rattle, and roll, tossing water everywhere. They stretch their feathers and wings and wiggle their bodies, throwing water all about. Then quickly, leap out of the water and fly off to preen for a few minutes before they go about their business of food finding once again.

So out of the Avenue Inn and Day Spa and the beach, somehow I got to a bird bath painting. Was it the pool? The hot tub? Who knows. But when I got home, this is what I painted.

But I did go to Delaware from Sunday to Tuesday, October 22- 24, 2023. A little cool especially in the morning, but it was certainly a beautiful couple of days. And notice hardly anyone was on the boardwalk!
