Fast Food is a limited edition print by Carl Brenders.
On a field trip to the boundary waters in Northern Minnesota, I was told I would see lots of big creatures like wolf, moose, etc. I did not see any of those. This can happen; one isn’t always lucky.
Instead, I saw lots of red squirrels that were not shy at all. We saw one that had burrowed a lot of pine cones, busily moving them to another place-a fascinating activity.
Several other squirrels enjoyed the easy supply of maple seeds. the squirrels were easy prey for an artist; especially one with a big love for them. I spent a lot of time just watching them. I will never tire of seeing their acrobatic behavior.
In Fast Food, I wanted to concentrate just on the squirrel and its food; that important necessity for every creature on this planet. So I left the background with an out-of-focus effect. I felt that this made my painting a more decorative one.
