This is not exactly a Christmas Robin or a Cardinal, but I feel Christmas in the air. I was out walking in the countryside today on a rare sunny autumn day and it made me want to paint wildlife. The hedgerows are full of blackberries but the leaves are starting to turn and dry out. Soon the crispy mornings will get ever crisper and turn to frost.

I wanted to convey that this little bird had just perched for a moment, the branch is still swinging slightly from his landing and any moment he will decide that the human is getting too close and will be off on the wing to a distant tree. How amazing it must be to fly on a whim.
