I announced this new site and posted my first Toroscape in my “normal” artist blog
and got at once following comment from Carmen, The Pomegranate Blog
” That splash of colour is insane Miki! Wow. Do you actually go to the bullfights for inspiration? I’ve always found them fascinating because my name Carmen has spanish origins and an interesting tale but havn’t been to Spain and frankly just seeing it in a movie once has put me off it. Sigh. Perhaps I’m also entranced since I’m a taurus. LOL. But your bullfight paintings are certainly the most STRIKING for me personally. Not to say the others aren’t stunning but the bullfights capture so much passion and movement.”
And this was my answer to her:
Thank you very much, Carmen. I have added your great comment in the blog of my new bull art site, because it is a very interesting one, reflecting wonderfully my experience with people who don’t like bullfights, but feel attracted by my bullfight paintings. By the way I added your comment to the blog of this new site, it is called “Amour Toro”. I hope to meet people (not only clients!) who will share with me their bull and bullfight experiences and thoughts.
You are welcome to join whenever you want.
Now to answer your question: I was a baby as I went the first time to a bullfight. Don’t ask me how it was (🙂 ) , but it must have been great since I loved the bulls and went to bullfights all my life!
You can’t judge bullfights in a film. To start with, if you are a sensual person and YOU must be one judging by this Pomegranate name and this icon!) the bullfight is a feast for all senses and this does not come through in a film! And then, it is a feast too, and an adventure, and it satisfies many different basic needs of human beings. if you go there and are ready to forget all the superficial moral norms of society, and ready to let you carry by the life there and by yourself in that life, then you will start understand and perhaps love bullfight…
