My first painting and Miró

Updated on August 11, 2011
Source

Panting of a rooster by Miro was my first painting, not that I didn't painted other subjects before but It was the first time I've got some appraisal. I did not copy though, I did my own version, somehow copying feels wrong to me so I always make it different in some way or another.

Miro was a surrealist Spanish painter though he had a style on his own, almost childish drawings and bright colors. I always felt that there was so much to see in Miro's paintings.The rooster in the Chinese horoscopes is a strong sign and the ones born under it have a flamboyant,feisty and obstinate personality.Somehow I really like birds species which the male is the most beautiful,colorful and attractive to the eye.Last year I was observing a chicken sanctuary in a close by town, the rooster was really dominant and hyper controlling over his harem to be so small all rooster have such a big personality! Perhaps that makes then so interesting.

My humble version of Miro's rooster become so important to me that I refused to give it to a good friend of mine, and still remains on my old room at my parent's house. I guess, I can not give it away simply because I genuinely liked and still do.

      Thanks,Joyce. Some things remain special through time and others fade away. I think,somehow it's my way to measure improvement in my art, to look back on it and compared with my present work.
