This is another collage experiment.  I had no real interest in reproducing the parts of the photograph that I liked but could improve upon some aspects of it, so I collaged the best bits and painted the rest... with a few leaves thrown in for good measure.  This technique feels perfect for a "tribute" portrait where multiple stories are suggested within the whole.  Cabare is an older horse who has been a champion throughout his life, from upper level dressage performance, to teaching new riders, to babysitting young horses and yet there is still nothing better than a meander through the tall grass meadow of a summer evening.
