Man or boy in the clouds

Naivete or innocence is a quality I like in art. In this painting the artist has rubbed away paint to  depict clouds. Why clouds? Did the subject die? He's wearing a vest showing a horse, which makes me think it might be someone specific rather than someone imagined. The most thickly painted area is the hair, which is golden.
