In the arena - oil painting


Dimension: 90 x 110 cm

Oil on linen.

Again a somewhat surreal situation where the sunflower heads turn not to face the sun but seem to be watching the cock fight. I actually worked in a nearby field of sunflowers, using strings and sticks to orientate the sunflower heads where I wanted them. The cockerel was very tame and an obliging model so long as plenty of corn was available.
