Dear Adrienne,


The painting of the cardinal is a smash!  It makes the room.  The cardinal by definition is red and the room itself is decorated with green, but the cardinal integrates green with red.  It has the qualities of a masterpiece, subplot.  The other aspect of it that I like is that it does not humanize the cardinal like Robert Bateman does.  It is pure cardinal, the real thing.
