I was approached one year ...maybe it was in 2010 or 2011 by a client that wanted to do a paint it forward painting for his home.  We went in circled discussions trying to pin down colors, style and direction but then were really stuck on size and cost. Made it happen for him. I had to send it rolled because it was so large. I am trying to remember but thinking it as 6 ft tall and maybe 5 ft wide, or four and a half feet wide. I did the painting in acrylic because of his time schedule for wanting it hanging.  This painting began a process for me that then carried on in several works forward using acrylics and patterning. 

I have a similar painting still in my collection.  I will have to see if I have the image to share with you right now.  I will look for it for tomorrows blog.  It is available should you fall in love with it! I just do not have it listed on this website. It is entitled Epsilon. 

We all have to learn new process in life when we are faced with new challenges. Change is inevitable, so being open and flexible will allow you to find balance and peace in each day.

Though the mountains be shaken and the hills be removed, yet my unfailing love for you will not be shaken nor my covenant of peace be removed,” says the Lord, who has compassion on you. Isaiah 54:10

Curb Sitters Figurative painting by Laurie Pace

When we lived in Lake Highlands area of Dallas, our old stomping grounds, we lived on a small single block street where neighbors knew neighbors and we all were part of our block.  Block parties were something to look forward to and the adults enjoyed it as much as the children did. It was a perfect spot for me to wander with my camera and snap pictures of families together, children playing and lots of games and competition as well as tables overflowing with food.

Curb SItters was painted from one of my shots of the girls... each eating and sharing something special from the day.  I do not paint like this very often and sometimes I wish I did. I know my work would be stronger today than it was in 2009 when I did this one. That was over five years ago.

Friendships are to be valued. The love of neighbors and the coming together of families is rare these days. I hope in our new neighborhood we might get a block party going this next spring. We are a one block street as well and with all the families crossing all the ages, it would be wonderful.  

Give a prayer of Thanks this day celebrating the love of friends and neighbors. Laurie

"Jonathan said to David, “Go in peace, for we have sworn friendship with each other in the name of the Lord, saying, ‘The Lord is witness between you and me, and between your descendants and my descendants forever.’” Then David left, and Jonathan went back to the town." 1 Samuel 20:42

This was one of my more 'fun' contemporary horse paintings using all of my favorite colors.   
There are times when I paint that I totally lose track of time and space enjoying the intensity of the canvas and composition before me.  My 'work' is an expression of the joy in my life. When I work I pray the joy of God is expressed through my work.  Whatever I am painting, I want to share that happiness with those viewing my work.  
Often while working I stop and take pictures and look at the images in Photoshop in reverse to know if the balance is naturally there.  When I see it from new eyes (new direction) I am able to see it in the right light or right place and observe it from outside of myself.  I am allowed to grow happier with my work each day if I behold it as a blessing. 
I can carry the joy of God into whatever I do. My work life responds to my attitude each day and if that attitude is one of joy, my total life is filled with happiness reflecting that.  
Wishing you Joy this day.  Laurie

Seaside Villa, Contemporary Landscape Paintings with Texas Artist Laurie Pace

When I paint these small landscapes I have this urge to escape to where the water is as vivid as the sky at sunset.  This is one of my favorite tiny landscape paintings

They always tell you when you are stressed to try and envision some place in your head and mind where it is all good...all peace and beauty.  It is like a focus point to escape whatever is stressing you.  

I find that prayer helps me be calm.  Sometimes it really takes its toll before I realize I do not need to feed into the chaos around me or the entanglements.  I have that choice.  Prayer will channel thoughts to be positive and it allow me to affirm that God is my full support.  I not only pray for myself but for others as well. Affirming your trust and love of our Father shows him you trust his answers will come at the right time in perfect ways. 

Pray with assurance. God is your help in every need no matter how great or small. With Him all things are possible. 

Be assured this day by God's presence and plans for your life.
Laurie

More leftover paint from my Neither Black or White Painting... but I had more orange left than blues... I love pulling these colors into this unique contemporary horse painting. It is abstract and it is one of my signature Painted Pony Pulls.

Discovery.  Discovery is always a joy when I paint one of these. You never know where you are going. The colors create the textured surface where the horses appear. I feel like a child at play when I am working on one of these. Every stroke of the palette knife slicing through color or layering color on top of prior layers is like joy and excitement as I leave my eyes open to finding the horses. New discoveries and new opportunities with each painting.   Painting is by far a  wonderful way to start the day, to fill the day or to end the day. The downer part are all the blogging and the computer work. 

Painting is a powerful way to live.. with joy and anticipation each day. I literally look forward to what I can discover every day. Child's play...God's gift...energy, art, color, and spirit.  I get to share it with you.
May you be open to the discovery of joy today.

Laurie

Neither Black or White Contemporary Horse Paintings with Texas Artist Laurie Pace

This painting was a joy to work on last weekend.  It had no beginning and truly could have no end, but I decided to leave it where it was because I felt the amazement of composition that just wove into this contemporary horse painting.

It was late at night when I ventured back into the studio to paint. You can tell by this image that I was working by light only.  I began to pull some of my neutral grays throughout and began to 'feel' a pattern come to front as I went next to paynes gray.  Then I came in and knifed in the whites allowing some to trail off with some of the grays.  Last came the black paint.  I left it like this over night... fighting off the urge to keep painting.  Sometimes you have to step back and let the process work for you instead of forcing things to be.


In the morning I returned and immediately saw where the horses were in the painting. I finished off their structure and then turned to color. I went with turquoise on this painting and once I worked it in, I knew I had to spice it with a slight bit of tangerine. 

I hope you know my work is filled with JOY most of the time. Paintings do not work if I am not centered in that special place of Joy with God and allowing his spirit to work through me. Painting is never difficult when I am centered in Him.  Each painting has my full attention and often I am so absorbed in painting time flies... and Terry has to come dig me out.  My Paintings are filled with God'sspirit and my life with his joy.

Blessing you with Joy this day.
Laurie
