Reclamation - Going Green in Painting

Belle, my painting buddy

Held In The Light
pastel - still on the easel

I look around sometimes at the pile (s) of older paintings in my studio, and can't bring myself to just toss them.  The horse in this pastel piece was done quite a long time ago, but I have always liked the glow that he has.  I was inspired by another artist's use of representational subject matter in some more abstract, expressive things.  So, I decided, what the heck, I'll play around with this a little.  Worst-case, I toss the whole thing.  So, here is what I have so far.  The base "thing" needs some work, and the clouds do too, but you get the idea.  Let me know what you think.  Thanks!
