Theme Day: Bright Colours


It's theme day once again here on City Daily Photo. This months theme is Bright Colours. While walking home from a concert on the plaza I was taken aback by this painting hanging at Legends of Santa Fe. A gallery in the downtown area. This painting entitled "Featherman" is the work of painter Jeff Ham.

Here is an excerpt from his biography on their website, "I paint what I love, people, animals and sometimes landscapes. I do my best to translate emotion and feelings into color and communicate my individual interpretation of each subject. The work is done quickly and in the moment to capture spontaneity and avoid over thinking and over working. As an artist I am at a genesis of learning to express myself in an honest and straightforward manner."

Please take some time today to see the Bright Colour photographs from my fellow bloggers by clicking the link below.

To sum up my feelings towards this photo in a word, MAGICAL! The composition was very great! Though the photo itself is already wonderful, including parts of the Gallery made it much more Wonderful!

How cool, fantastic choice. It would be so amazing to have a talent like that...I'm lucky if I can draw a stick figure!

Fantastic capture. Love the way the interior frames the painting. Like Ciel, I want this gallery for my house.

Nice shot-- a very appropriate choice for theme day! I was noticing that Sante Fe must be a very colorful place-- almost all of your posts would also work for the "bright colors" theme.
