I'm callin' it. After working on the buggy things I previously mentioned, I decided to sign it and step away from the easel. Some artist friends suggested that I remove the background horse on the right. Seriously considering that idea for awhile, I decided doing so would force that strong diagonal-leftward-thrust again and shift the focal point. Instead, I repainted that crazy horse head that serves as an anchor for the lunging horse. The expression remains feigned annoyance.
