Question for the artist?

Artist's description:

Inspired by the famous "Horse Attacked by a Lion" (1762) by George Stubbs. The original painting can be seen on WikiArt here:

Hopefully the Picasso influence is also apparent. I admire Picasso greatly for the freedom with which he allowed himself to adapt forms to his artistic aims. He also often re-created masterpieces in his own style. Since I first saw the Stubbs painting I felt it was the perfect candidate for an update and an opportunity for me to adopt Picasso's language.

For most of the 8 months it took to complete, this painting had a blue background which I was not happy with. It lacked punch. I've always admired Gauguin's yellows and ochers and it turned out to be the perfect compliment to the dark, dramatic scene.

Materials used:

Oil on canvas, stretched over reinforced wood frame. Unframed, edges painted white.
