Exhausted
24 x 24 inches Oil on Canvas.SOLD
Available Paintings by Laurie Pace 

This painting lives on the East Coast with one of my favorite collectors.  They have horses, mixed media piano pieces, this one and more.  This best describes me at the moment.  Gardening, planting, teaching Lady L with homeschool each day, cooking, cleaning and still managing to keep up with Visual Language Magazine and Artists of Texas.

God has slowed me down a bit with some mitral valve issues, but I know I am doing wrong when I do it. Drinking more coconut water for the potassium.  Did you realize MOST of you do not have enough potassium in your body?  You might read up on it.  I add the coconut water or carrot juice to my day every day on top of a supplement of potassium/magnesium.  Terry and I both take it.  

Yesterday, Tuesday... was a beautiful day. Started out really cold but by noon we were outside working on the roses, pruning and spraying them. Terry started building a picket fence around the garden. Lady L came over for two hours of math and then we left for home depot. More plants came home with the wood to finish the picket fence.  Yes today is another day.


I have not stopped giving thanks for you, remembering you in my prayers.  I keep asking that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the glorious Father, may give you the Spirit[f] of wisdom and revelation, so that you may know him better. I pray that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened in order that you may know the hope to which he has called you, the riches of his glorious inheritance in his holy people,  and his incomparably great power for us who believe. Ephesians 1:16-19

Orange Tennis Shoes by Texas Artist Laurie Pace

Orange Tennis Shoes
8 x 12 inches Oil on Canvas.
Available Paintings by Laurie Pace 

It had something to do with a wedding. I think the groom is wearing orange tennis shoes.  A small commission duplicating the Pink Tennis shoes I painted back in 2008 that were Lady L's shoes.

You see, at just the right time, when we were still powerless, Christ died for the ungodly. Very rarely will anyone die for a righteous person, though for a good person someone might possibly dare to die. But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us. Romans 5:6-8

Horse 31 Stopping for Water Horse Painting by Texas Artist Laurie Pace

Horse 31 Stopping for Water
9 x 12 inches Oil on Canvas.
Available Paintings by Laurie Pace 

I loved the colors in this horse painting. It is like a plate full of veggies with deep rich vibrant hues contrasting and playing with the eye as it discovers the horses.  Still getting stronger at this to try it on a larger surface. That may be next tomorrow.

Today is Palm Sunday, rich with meaning for our family and filled with memories of past Easter seasons. 

Also, I want to add a Happy Birthday today to my youngest brother.... a joy to our family from the day he was born.

One of my favorite images is my Dad and Lady L on Dad's last Easter with us in this lifetime. This was in 2011. My dad loved this great grand-daughter and was always smiling when he saw her. 


Now when they drew near to Jerusalem and came to Bethphage, to the Mount of Olives, then Jesus sent two disciples, saying to them, “Go into the village in front of you, and immediately you will find a donkey tied, and a colt with her. Untie them and bring them to me. If anyone says anything to you, you shall say, ‘The Lord needs them,’ and he will send them at once.” This took place to fulfill what was spoken by the prophet, saying, “Say to the daughter of Zion, ‘Behold, your king is coming to you, humble, and mounted on a donkey, and on a colt, the foal of a beast of burden.’”
Matthew 21:1-11

Horse 30 In The Pink Horse Painting by Texas Artist Laurie Pace

In The Pink
9 x 12 inches Oil on Canvas.
Available Paintings by Laurie Pace 

Yes, so Lady L was visiting and we always visit the color Pink. I used the same new approach with this painting as I did the first two.  It truly is a 'freeing' feeling when working over these small canvas. Not sure how it will work on a larger horse painting.

Terry is off restriction now with his eyes. He is building square foot gardening in our back yard. We bought all the organic peat moss, organic compost and the vermiculite to fill each of the four beds with. Lady L will be over helping with the planting and hopefully later with harvesting and eating.  I am making out a list today of what we are growing.  Pumpkins are at the top of Lady's L's list. We may have to grow those at her house. I remember my mother growing watermelons in the dogrun out in the backyard when we were growing up. She had stopped using the dog run for the dogs.. .it was a wide one with a white picket type fence and inside she planted the watermelons.  Personally I love honey dew and cantaloupe too!

So in Christ Jesus you are all children of God through faith. 
Galatians 3:26

Horse 29 Two Together by Texas Artist Laurie Pace

Two Together
9 x 12 inches Oil on Canvas.
Available Paintings by Laurie Pace 

Second in the "out of the box" series still refining a different approach to the canvas and building up my determination and courage to do a very very large one soon.  Soft colors and a different palette create the textured back drop for these two pony pals standing in a field blooming with flowers.

Such gorgeous weather.. and I spent most of yesterday in bed with a kidney stone... but the best part of the day was sitting outside around six enjoying the warmer weather, and watching Terry putter around the back yard. He goes off restriction today, so I know he has many plans ahead for the day. Paddy got a haircut yesterday too.. I need to take his picture for you! Will try to do that... and take pictures of the flower Terry is planning on finishing up in the backyard. He has nursed 13 rose bushes through the winter and it is time to plant.

I have been crucified with Christ and I no longer live, but Christ lives in me. The life I now live in the body, I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me. Galatians 2:20

Horse 28 Windstorm, Horse Painting by Texas Artist Laurie Pace


  © G.O.D. Laurie Justus Pace      Graphics One Design 2014

Horse 28 Windstorm 
9 x 12 inches Oil on Canvas.
Available Paintings by Laurie Pace 

I went climbed out of the box on the next few pieces I will be posting. Nothing like going one direction and ending up 180 degrees the other way.
Soft colors blending and building creating an enticing surface to explore. This first one in this new approach is a single horse, painted while the winds were blowing about 65 mph outside in the storms we have had.

SO I named this one Windstorm. In the middle of painting this the storm carried on outside my studio this past weekend.

For if, while we were God’s enemies, we were reconciled to him through the death of his Son, how much more, having been reconciled, shall we be saved through his life! Romans 5:10

Racing the Morning Horse Painting by Texas Artist Laurie Pace


  © G.O.D. Laurie Justus Pace      Graphics One Design 2014

Racing the Morning
28 x 42 inches Oil on Canvas.
Available Paintings by Laurie Pace 

This is a colorful burst of sunlight and energy as three horses race across the canvas. The details of this painting are gorgeous. Stop by the link above and see it up close and personal.

Terry is healing nicely. He has four more days of restrictive living and he is counting the moments. This morning we awoke to the smoke detector going off... and that involved a ladder and a climb. He stayed in his boundaries changing out the battery but we made note that the ladder my dear father bought us 23 years ago was getting feeble...just like us. So next week after NASCAR has left the area, we will stop by and get a new ladder.  Makes the climb a bit less shaky.

Also on the ladder the day before having to shove screen inside on of our side vents on the house. Birds had figured out how to flip the facial door on in (the dryer vent) and were inside building away.  I held the tall 20 footer yesterday keeping him steady...no looking down, no bending down and no picking up anything above 20 pounds. I did not see NO CLIMBING ladders on the list from the doctor.


For Christ’s love compels us, because we are convinced that one died for all, and therefore all died. And he died for all, that those who live should no longer live for themselves but for him who died for them and was raised again. 2 Corinthians 5:14-15
