Trick Or Treat - Skunk And Pumpkin Patch By Carl Brenders

By Carl Brenders

Trick or Treat by Carl Brenders, available from Art Barbarians Art Gallery.

Who is not afraid of being “skunked”? Many people in the country have had that bad experience. Not only people — cougars, wolves, coyotes and foxes —all of them, at least once in their lives, learned how long it takes to get rid of that terrible smell. So, for me, as for many people, a skunk was taboo until I learned that some people kept skunks as pets after the scent glands were removed. Thus, a little operation makes this nice little black and white American into a great companion that can replace your tabby.

I hesitated a long time to make a painting of a skunk. No other wildlife artist ever dared to do it. The motivation came with the idea of doing something with pumpkins. So many times I had seen those abandoned pumpkin fields, and every time, I was enchanted by the beauty of that orange color and the attractive form of those giant fruits.

I often say that I use the animal as an excuse to paint a certain background. That’s really true for this painting. I like to paint objects and texture, and in that respect, the pumpkins were irresistible. And what better animal than a skunk could I put in this painting? The black and white, and the nocturnal behavior of this beautiful mustelid (a member of the same family as martens and weasels) combined with the pumpkins made it the perfect Halloween subject. — Carl Brenders This Skunk Fine Art Print was released in 2001.
