Saturday Tease (painting with envy)

For the brave but not so brave. Wait near an intersection. Best to even the odds and try to catch him in the heavy sand near the gate. On saturday morning the tease would appear out of the crowds dressed in white. His weekend pastime was toro le taunte . Everyone laughed in quiet terror as he dodged in and touched the horn. Everyone smiled in commonality at his bravery. Everyone is happy. Just inside the gate death awaits.....the bull has picked a beautiful day to die! Acrylic on canvas 12"X16". Buy this painting for $130.00 or take your own trip to Spain.

I really like this painting Rick. GREAT composition.

Are you aware that there is some kind of security alert when you click on your comment button? I took a chance. Please tell me my computer won't crash after this.

The security alert is to say "enter this site with caution, the blogger herein is nuts!" Rick, posting three times in one day must be a record, you are on a roll. Your writing is way over my head and sometimes your painting subjects seem to come out of left field (what does that saying mean and where did it come from?). My little brain is so simple and just can't keep up with your creative quick wit. What a bore I am. LOL Never in a million years would I think of painting a bull fight!! Lots of action in this one- definitely not a still life! Like it a lot. One thing that confused me at first. The small window just over the right elbow looks like it could be something in his right hand, like a black bat that he is going to clobber the bull with.
You should tell us what size your paintings are.
