This is a beautiful limited edition print, #7349; it has been signed by Carl Brenders, who painted it for 1992 Earth Day. Carl Brenders has become a very popular wildlife artist due to the realism and beauty of his work. He is a master of every detail; nothing is overlooked.
The print has been protected and displayed in a custom frame so it is in very good condition, and comes complete with a Certificate of Authenticity. The outside of the frame measures 41" x 32 1/4". The entire print measures 35 1/2" x 27"; the picture itself is 31 3/4" x 22 3/4".
I'm sorry, but my photography skills didn't do the colour or clarity of the picture justice! The first photo was taken with a flash - that shows the most accurate colour; the others were taken without the flash so you can see the entire composition. You have to see it for yourself!
Here is what Carl Brenders wrote about this picture:
"Since my favorite colors are ochres and warm tints, I did not want a lot of greens in this painting, although it is usually summer when wolf pups reach this age. As the pups grow, they stay in a certain spot with their mother or a babysitter from the wolf pack. They play all of the time and, as a result, ruin most of the plant life, which then turns yellow during a dry summer and explains the ochre colors in the background.
For me, the wolf represents the symbol of conservation of our wild world more so than the panda. I have great respect for the wolf because it managed to survive even though it was poached, killed and massacred for centuries throughout the northern hemisphere, where it lives. Wolves are among the most interesting animals because of the social rules of the wolf pack. They are a good example of birth control in nature, as only the alpha male and female mate and have offspring. The rest of the pack helps to take care of the pups. I will never tire of painting wolves; the satisfaction of rendering that wild glance in their eyes is too great."
