ORIGINAL ARTWORK, Original drawing of White Birch Yule Log with Cardinals Winter Solstice, Yule Tide, Christmas Time, by Paula Kuitenbrouwer


Original drawing of Cardinal Birds on Silver Birch Wood Block by Dutch nature artist Paula Kuitenbrouwer, owner of ArtsBooksCrafts, www.mindfuldrawing.com and author of 'Birds, Butterflies, Fish & Botany'.

A lovely nature scene: a couple of Cardinal birds meets near a Silver Birch wood block, overgrown with evergreen. This drawing of a highly detailed nature scene could be interpreted as a perfect Yule or Christmas symbol too. The male Cardinal sits on the dark side of the Yule Log, while the female brings the light on the lighter side of the drawing. This symbolizes that the longest and darkest days of December are over. Evergreen indicates it is mid-winter time.

However, this drawing can be used for Feng Shui means too. In traditional Feng Shui, birds are powerful symbols of new opportunities. Birds symbolize love and commitment, abundance and good luck. Feng Shui attention is often paid to colors, numbers, as well as the symbolism of specific birds. These cardinal birds are a pair, which alludes to love and marriage. The woodblock symbolizes the Wood Element. This drawing therefore can be used to allude to ending a winter, starting spring; new time for marriage and love.

Size of drawing is: 41-59 cm/ about 16-23 inches; it needs framing in a style you prefer and find in accordance with the place thos nature scene is put up. My idea is a wooden frame; but your idea might differ!
