Ok...I know this painting is not the most pleasant thing. I realize that it's a picture of a bull rider dying and going to heaven. I also realize that most of you might like to see something a little more upbeat.
But...this is a manifestation of one of my favorite things about art. I love that art is a medium for emotion. All kinds of emotion. In life, we do not always feel happy or pleasant. We experience death and weird things, and I like any kind of art that makes me feel something.
Plus, I've never seen a painting that shows someone's body + their spirit together on the same canvas.
So here it is, folks. Weird, fabulous, emotional, real art.
