For the month of January 2014, more than 253 other artists and I posted a painting a day for 30 days.

This is Day 23: Everybody was outside playing ball. They kept hearing thumps. "Oh, it's the cardinal who likes to bang into windows, and car mirrors. I'm surprised that bird has not hurt himself," said Gramma.

"I like to fill the birdbath and play with the hose," Mason said hopefully. "Yes, that is usually fun in the summer but it is chilly today," Gramma told him. "Look, there is plenty of clean water in there anyway. I will show you a picture of a birdbath and a cardinal in my friend Helen's yard. She has a house in a very wintery place."

At lunch, the children reminded Gramma about the winter picture. She showed them a snow scene. It looked really pretty but cold. "But where is the snowman?" asked Adalynn. "In storybooks of snow there is always a snowman!"
