The Chef has decided to spare the bird's life, an honorable gesture.  The background was textured by using a palette knife and modeling paste.  The primary colors of red, blue and yellow are accented with green and the black of the bird.  The expression on the Chef's face shows that he is contented with his kind gesture of saving the bird.
