THOUGHTS ON PAINTING
In the Colour of Music painting, a bull stands tall against the walls of a blue and red room, the colours on each of the two walls pictured. He is wearing a pair of red headphones with his back end against the red wall and his front against the blue. The red colour has always been a representation of passion, suggesting that the red headphones and the red wall are an extension of the bull's love of music, while the blue wall and the shadow of his that is cast upon the blue wall speaks to the serenity and the tranquility that the bull feels while listening to music.
