Title: El Toro, 2017
So, there is this empty plot of grassland down the road from my house and there will occasionally be two bulls grazing on it in the afternoons.
One day, as I passed them by, I remembered having an internal dialog on how nonchalant and relaxed they were.
At that time, life was not going well for me and I remembered saying to myself to slow down and take things a step at a time.
I also remembered telling myself to be determined, strong, and steadfast in all undertakings.
The colors and spots on the bull depict the many exciting small projects running concurrently in my life at that time. The reds depict the trials and tribulations, similar to spears stabbed into the animal during a bullfight.
Today, life has turned around for the better, so, I finally got it framed. It is now hanging in my office.
