This is one of the other variations of "I had a dream..."
It was much earlier in the progression, but I like it too.

whoa! So we get to see the worlds behind the girl and the horse---so glad you posted this. I fully understand "stages" in a work; that sometimes earlier stages speak a language all their own: All my progressive panel pieces, which go from one image to the next? I usually have 20 versions before I pick 3 or 4; so I know what you're talking about, totally. In this one, in addition to the greens, this has much greater 'exposure'---to use a photographic term: You've allowed much more light than in your later version. And in this, she seems to be galloping out of a breaking night, with mountains and canyons all around. Perhaps this wasn't as finished as you'd wanted, but the background has a defined yet amorphous presence---it can be mountains, canyons, etc, but it can also be a landscape we just don't recognize. And your light intensifies from the bottom of the piece right up the horse, leading to very touching blue-yellow-greens on its neck and face. The girl is now seen in full, with what looks like a native american shirt. And your shading is dramatic too...I love this variation. I for one never get tired of seeing "variations on a theme," because with artists like yourself, the variations are magic. A wonderful dual upload, and I love them both equally.
