FishermanÂ´s Wharf - Puffins
Giclee On Canvas
NOTES: FishermanÂ´s Wharf - Puffins Our international bird looking like a sad clown, isnâ€™t a very attractive subject for a wildlife artist? For me it was a welcome alternative to all grass eaters and predators like elk, moose, wolves, big cats, etc. In the end I would see and paint something different.
The subject had been lingering in my head for years; now it is finally done and it made me very happy. My hope is that it will do so for many people. Several species of puffins exist all along the northern coastlines, from Alaska to Scotland to Scandinavia. I chose the most typical species and the most widespread: the Atlantic Puffin (â€œFratercula arcticaâ€) which means â€œlittle brother of the North.â€ The term â€œbrotherâ€ comes from its black and white coat reminiscent of the monks robes. The world population is estimated to about 7,000,000 couples. Puffins live and breed on coastal cliffs and offshore islands. They excavate burrows in the ground, sometimes six feet long. Where populations are dense, the burrows cross and can become real underground labyrinths. Most puffins do not reproduce before the age of seven and will lay only one egg. They are real fishermen and can hold up to ten little fishes in their beak. When diving they use their wings to â€œflyâ€ under water..

Carl Benders bio
love for all creatures, from the friendly to the ferocious, is evident in his masterful attention to their every detail; nothing is overlooked. With his imagination, Brenders is able to get close enough to wild animals so that he can almost feel their textures. Consequently, his work has a tactile reality, giving us the sense of having been where even the most intrepid of field guides have not ventured. Of this ability Brenders says, "A painter is a privileged being, because in his imagination he can come very close to the animals he paints. In reality, one can never come this close to wild animals, particularly if they are predators. Brenders' insistence on anatomical perfection in his paintings stems from his philosophy that nature, itself, is perfection: "That is why I paint the way I do with so much detail and so much realism " I want to capture that perfection," he says.
