Thank you Kristina, cheekyjane and Mary!  My husband's aunt wanted an old porcelain ornament painted.  They were supposed to be cardinals, but the original painted birds looked nothing like cardinals! I sanded away much of the old, chipped paint and re-

painted it with acrylic paints, trying to get the cardinal pair to look as lifelike as possible.  Tedious work, but I liked the outcome.

Thank you, Ernst - I just posted a photo of the sculpture before it was re-painted.

 I'm sure Kevin's Aunt will love her 'new' ornament so beautifully painted for her by you..

Thank you, Lyn!  This was painted approx. 9 years ago!  Aunt Estelle gave us a couple bottles of her home made preserves as a special thank you for doing this for her!
