"Picasso's Bull"
manipulated fractal flame by Mick Mather
As I am wont to do, I was just frittering away a bit of time and playing about in one of my digital drawing programs. The results of that playtime were minimal as regards posting here so I grabbed an old fractal flame and layered it into the drawing. Still not much to see so I passed that fractal through one of my plug-in filters and, hello! What have we here. A tweak here and a stretch there and what we have is a bit of the Spanish spectacle of bullfighting as well as an interesting bit of symbolism of the sort that informed the sub-conscious thinking of Picasso - Jackson Pollock as well now that I think of it. Whichever way you like it, here 'tis!

Yes, I can see it too, although I had to explore it for a while. But that's not a bad thing at all. I like the pics you should think a bit before you figure out the whole scale. This is great, Mick, the fire bull! ;)

I'm glad you had fun exploring this piece. I like it when you have to work and think about an image too. :)

Yes! Your picture symbolizes the bullfight, especially with that red hot blood and sun behind the fight.There is much power in that picture.

Hummm, well, I can see a bull in there somewhere. Nice energy in the lines and colors (nice choice in the colors very powerful).
