Horse 65 Saving Grace, Contemporary Horse Painting by Texas Artist Laurie Pace

Bright Yellows with the Texas heat this week. In the studio horses are gathering as I am back full time painting... or almost!  We have 100 plus temps that are to be falling into the mid nineties this coming weekend.  The long term forecast is for a rainy fall... WHERE IS THE RAIN???

Saving Grace was entitled so because of God's saving grace for each of us. So much turmoil in the world along with the turmoil in our everyday lives. It is only through His Saving Grace that make it through each minute, or it is for our family.  This small painting is a tribute to the summer and the heat and the knowledge of His saving grace working for each of us no matter what is happening everywhere.  

Terry is the saving grace for our trees. We are still nurturing last year's planted Red Oak and Crepe Myrtle's and this year Burr Oak and third Crepe Myrtle. They all have different watering schedules and he has been a champ keeping up with it. All those roses we nurtured indoors through the winter last year have thrived in their new beds and I have had roses all summer.  Heading into September soon, I long for those cooler nights back in the sixties.... I know the cooling grace is on its' way and pray dearly for the rainy grace to be with it. We are in a huge drought and have been since 2008.

A shoot will come up from the stump of Jesse;
    from his roots a Branch will bear fruit.
 The Spirit of the Lord will rest on him—
    the Spirit of wisdom and of understanding,
    the Spirit of counsel and of might,
    the Spirit of the knowledge and fear of the Lord—
and he will delight in the fear of the Lord.
Isaiah 11:1-3

Worked on this contemporary horse painting for a week time period even though it is smaller than my normal paintings. That is why I am including it in my fun 100 horses this year.  Click here to see the painting and close ups.    It is a story teller and that is why it is entitled Traveling Home. 

No matter where we go the constant of God is with us and the journey home. We are all on a journey from birth to death.  Hence came the name "Traveling Home".  

Great peace have those who love your law, and nothing can make them stumble.
Psalm 119:165 NIV

White Arabian Nights, Horse Painting by Texas Artist Laurie Pace

Painted back in Spring of 2009, this too is a popular painting that is ordered in prints from Fine Art America. Order one here. 

Unfortunately, I have also seen this posted on other artist's sites as their own and never have totally understood why anyone would do that.  Know who you are as a person and love and accept yourself and your gifts.  Be Truthful.

When we limit our thinking to 'I can't do it', or 'this is too much for me', we are doing more harm.  God Spirit will revel the truth to your soul and to you if your heart and ears are open to hear him.  Try speaking the truth about the positives you have working for you.  It can include your gifts from God, your family, your workplace, your friends... etc.  Affirm that you are a loved child of God and worthy of so much more.  Affirm the harmony and prosperity He promises to you.  

Actual truth is unchanging. Nothing can take away from it or diminish it. Truth is made of love, peace, health and eternal goodness.  Look at your life with clear eyes and see the truth of who you are.  God's truth is waiting to be active in you.  


"Teach me your way, O Lord, that I may walk in your truth; give me an undivided heart to revere your name." Psalm 86:11

Purple Horse, Contemporary Horse Paintings by Texas Artist Laurie Pace



  ©+Laurie Pace       Graphics One Design 2014

 Size: 18 x 27  Oil on Canvas. Sold

This contemporary purple horse is another favorite on Fine Art America. Painted back in about 2008, there is something awing about the colors that pulls to certain people. You can buy a print here.

With the strong purples and accent colors, the painting is a positive bold horse painting. There is power with the strength from the colors. It is not the best facial horse, yet in the movement, something draws people in.

Have you ever suffered from a disease or a condition that literally sucked all your strength both physically and mentally?  Often our negative thoughts and fears keep us from finding our God Strength and Power deep inside of us.  It is often hard to not feel bound by limitations. God does not know limitations. Giving up false beliefs to allow Him to work in your life is not easy. "the one who is in you is greater than the one who is in the world."  1 John 4:4

This favorite painting is not available in a print but one called "Hot Summer Nights" is available in a print.    Only up to a 24 x 24. If you need one larger you would need to email me directly. 


There are times when you paint that things just seem to work easily falling into place with composition and color.  I think I have done three of these, two with the darker colors and one with earth tones.  Reminds me of when a river filled with rushing waters tumbles downstream over rocks and fallen trees. The power of the stream, the energy of the stream is filled with oxygen and propels forward tumbling and bubbling.  Under the surface it the water is calm and quiet in comparison to the gurgles and splashes on top. That is how this painting came to be one night in my studio in Dallas.

You are the same. The outside of you is constantly in motion doing and being and working.  What are you like inside? The best would be to have a center of peace offering up the quiet strength you need to pursue the day's activities.  When you pray feel the peace from that inner being. Trust that God will maintain stability with His indwelling presence. NO matter what is happening on the outside, your strength comes from deep inside of you. Do not be disturbed so deeply but the shallow happenings on the surface. Protect your peace and refill yourself with His peace.

"Let me hear what God the Lord will speak, for he will speak peace to his people."  Psalm 85:8

This contemporary horse painting did not last long after it was painted. I am betting it was the earth tones in the composition.  Not too much loud paint in this one but you get the connection between the two horses.

There is a connection between us and our Father. We are made in the likeness of God. As a human we have the ability to chose and make decisions in life.  We are aware spiritually, physically and mentally to all around us.  Each of us have gifts chosen carefully by our Father for us. I am blessed to be an artist... to have creativity part of my core. In essence we are all 'artists' because we all are weaving the fabric of our lives each day.  If God is your partner in this life, what beautiful masterpiece can you create with His unending love and support of you?  

Gifts vary for each of us. Using those gifts to benefit others is the challenge before you. Working harmoniously with your family, your community and your job.  Sharing those gifts is giving of your gift to others, giving of God and His love through your work and your gifts.

"God leaf was hammered out and cut into threads to work into the blue, purple and crimson yarns, the work of skilled hands."  Exodus 39:3

This one is already gone...but I had to post it along the way. I have been a bit under the weather for the past week and trying to catch up puts me at the computer for a long stretch!  I want to share every contemporary horse painting that comes through this studio.  The colors were strong in this piece. They rang clear and bright for the eye to enjoy.

Trace Adkins played most of this week. As mentioned early I am leaning more into my CW roots here of Texas with the summer heat.  

We are still battling to keep our new Burr Oak in the front yard. Although  all the other leaves are turning crispy brown there is a hint of new leaves trying to come out. Doubtful they will survive the Texas August heat.  Too hot to walk. Too hot to walk Paddy.  Just plain too Texas Hot.

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 1:18-19
