Finished collage art!

I started this collage months ago and finally finished. My client has been exceedingly patient, bless her heart. She asked me to do something which would honor a horsemand and Christian who has been a wonderful mentor to herself and her family. So, in honor of him and to celebrate his "hearthorse" that passed away recently after 17 years of teaching kids to ride, here is my collage to Cowboy Bob.

and here is the original "concept" drawing.

Thanks ladies. I am grateful for you feedback. Just to clarify, I did not do the calligraphy. My friend, who is very good at this, did it. Freehand!

atreyu,

I paint in ink, actually. It's Sumi ink, usually used for Japanese or Chinese calligraphy. I use a wee bit of watercolor for the color tones, and the calligraphy on this piece was done by my friend. She is very skilled.

Atreyu

I am trying to remember where that name comes from. Achildren's book?

Oh! I just remembered! The Neverending Story! Loved that movie.

Great piece! It's beautiful & very touching.

Life is like a camera. Focus on what's important, Capture the good times, Develop from the negatives and if things don't work out, Take another shot.

That's amazing. i've never heard of it before, very cool.
And yes, it's from the movie :) And also a band haha. But I loved the movies growing up as well.
