Sometimes I will just sit and draw on the canvas with charcoal.  I may stare at it for months. I know I posted this sketch on canvas probably in June or July... and it sat in the studio. Today I picked it up and began slapping colors on the surface.  That is never enough, but it is a foundation and a start.  Wait till you see the finished painting tomorrow. The spirit that works through the knife in my hands amazes me. I do not know where it comes from.  Please stop by the blog tomorrow and see the final painting. It is available.

"For where you have envy and selfish ambition, there you find disorder and every evil practice."  James 3:16

Making Tracks is a special wolf painting for a special friend.  It is a SHHHHH... don't tell... a birthday present in the making. It is ALMOST done. If I change anything major I will share it again with the updates. 

Wanted to share that the Bible Verse below  as it was a strong one for me this week.  Read it, drink it in, inhale it... and try it.

Who is wise and understanding among you? Let them show it by their good life, by deeds done in the humility that comes from wisdom.
James 3:13 NIV

He is having a birthday...my eldest son celebrates this day. Remembering back is always so special to your first birth and your first baby.  I chose this horse painting because that is one thing he loved to do was play. He played hard, worked hard and sometimes studied hard.  He is a father of two wonderful boys that I cherish dearly and married to a wonderful woman.  Together they enjoy life's journey.

Happy Birthday Justin. 


He is about six months old here. This was Easter time.  
He still has that wonderful smile.

This was one of my favorite nudes.  Just a quick share for the week.  Hope to be painting this week to post some new things.  Just finished up a larger wolf painting as well, so you will see that one soon.  This nude painting was created from simple pulls of paint both horizontal and vertical. Which came first, the drawing, or the paint? That is for you to figure out.   

I feel almost paralyzed by world events...knowing I need to pray. So between breaths I am praying. It is hard to just 'go about' life knowing what is happening throughout the world. It is hard to paint with out seeing in my mind the destruction and the violations to innocent people.  Do not let the day pass without thinking of others and praying for those closely affected and for our government that cannot seem to grow up and get a grip.  

Think back to the wars in Europe... the Spanish Civil War, WW I and WWII.  The artists that lived through these time in Europe and study the work that came from their soul and the events surrounding them. Here is one from Picasso. Art always tells a story. 


Guernica  by Pablo Piccaso" Probably Picasso's most famous work, Guernica is certainly his most powerful political statement, painted as an immediate reaction to the Nazi's devastating casual bombing practice on the Basque town of Guernica during Spanish Civil War."

“Your attitude should be the same as that of Christ Jesus: Who, being in very nature God, did not consider equality with God something to be grasped, but made himself nothing, taking the very nature of a servant, being made in human likeness. And being found in appearance as a man, he humbled himself and became obedient to death— even death on a cross!”- Philippians 2:5-8

This is a commissioned painting for a very modern home.  We really had quite a few sketches as it developed as I wanted to have the full figure across with the feet.  It will be framed in a dark frame and will hang in the master bath area of the home.  I paint nudes on request and have quite a few styles I work in. You can see them at Daily Painters. They are mixed in with my other figurative work. 

I love the thick paint and layering on this one and it is musical in person. Contemporary Nude Painting by Laurie Pace

Busy here at our house and painting comes in spurts. We have a new grand baby on the way and we are already in preparations. This is a new small painting 9 x 12 of my wolves done in the pull style of my horses. These contemporary wolf paintings are popular but I do not paint many of them. I try to keep them collectible!  So this is a small wolf painting just finished and very wet! This is the FIRST small wolf I have ever painted.

I lift up my eyes to the mountains— where does my help come from? My help comes from the Lord, the Maker of heaven and earth.
Psalm 121:1-2 NIV

This is another GOD directed painting. I was up at about 3 a.m. and could not sleep.  Cannot tell you where this came from but it jumped right off my brush.... no palette knife.  Love the colors that contrast and the simplicity of the lines of this horse painting.  It is available in print here.

The reflection of the horse reminded me of a childhood memorized Bible verse: 

When I was a child, I used to speak like a child, think like a child, reason like a child; when I became a man, I did away with childish things. For now we see in a mirror dimly, but then face to face; now I know in part, but then I will know fully just as I also have been fully known. But now faith, hope, love, abide these three; but the greatest of these is love.  
Corinthians 13:11-13
