"Colourful"-Theme for August, 2010

This vivid painting of a colourful but illegal activity caught my eye at Spanish Market.

  1. In this painting the cockerels look quite benign, almost as if they're dancing together. The colours in the tail feathers are wonderful.

  5. The most beautiful thing of art is, that it is a mirror of peoples life. Wrong or right, it doesn't matter. Because ages from now, when people see this painting, they will know that this happened in the past.

  6. Love the style though, Kate. The sweep of the pen and the flow ... goes well with the vibrancy of the colours. I like this choice of photo for the theme.

  7. Sigh. Cockfighting isn't illegal here yet. It's quite common among our paintings too, with the roosters' tails just as colorful.

  10. Seeing the cockfight reminds me that I can't believe that Barcelona is outlawing bullfighting.This is quite a riot of color and it captures the heritage of your great city!

  18. Lots of great color here! I really like this painting! I've never heard of music at a cockfight, though.

    This "illegal" activity is still quite popular in Miami and other parts of Florida.

  19. A mass of colour and perfect for today. Oh dear, hate cock fighting but it still goes on. I do love the naive quality of the art.
