Horse 56 Ode to Joy Contemporary Horse Paintings by Laurie Pace

Horse 56 Ode to Joy by Laurie Pace

 Size:8 x 10  Oil on Canvas.


This painting is thick.  It is really thick. I have some additional close up images on the main website if you want to see them. I loved the way the colors blended throughout the background and in the center of the horse. His head is tilted up to feel the sun on his face in the early morning cool breeze. The grass is wet and covered in dew and the day has just begun. 

Do you stretch in bed and feel this way sometimes? Eager to get up and start your day?  That is one wonderful thing about life, we are not 'stuck' to a time clock, but we still stay responsible to what needs to be accomplished in our lives. What brings your joy to the surface? Mine is the early morning sunrise.

He is like the light of morning at sunrise on a cloudless morning, like the brightness after rain that brings grass from the earth. 2 Samuel 23:4

Night Appaloosa  By Laurie Pace 
 Size:8 x 10  Mixed Media on Canvas.


I went back and forth on this Appaloosa Painting.  It is really much prettier in hand than in the image. Stop by my website by clicking the link above to see some close up shots of this painting. This is the second of two more realistic paintings I did this week.  The Appaloosa is definitely one of my favorite horses to paint.

Horse 54 Summer Twilight, Contemporary Horse Painting by Texas Artist Laurie Pace

 Size: 9 x 12  Mixed Media on Canvas Board


Always fun to do mixed media pieces. This has in the background pages from a western novel. Over that are rubbed layers of glazing and then acrylic on the top surface. I only do a few of these with a touch of realism to offer something other than abstract.  Maybe these horses will be more collectible because they are rare for me...who knows.  If it calls to your heart, visit the site on the link above to see if it is still available.

Horse 53 Summer Sun Waterhole a Contemporary Horse Painting by Texas Artist Laurie Pace

 Size:8 x 10  Oil on Canvas.


We finally hit the 100 degrees last week and there is no escape. Then we had rain and 65 degrees.  This week it is back up in the high 90's again.  This is what prompted this painting...the summer heat. There is only vivid bright shades of blue sky, red eyelids when you close your eyes to the brilliant yellow sun... and a tiny bit of green grass in the shade. Couldn't have captured it any better in this contemporary horse painting. 


And I saw something else under the sun:
In the place of judgment—wickedness was there,
    in the place of justice—wickedness was there.
Ecclesiastes 3:16

Finished Painting - Breaking Light, Contemporary Horse Paintings by Texas Artist Laurie Pace


Breaking Light by Laurie Pace ©Graphics One Design

Breaking Light
  ©+Laurie Pace       Graphics One Design 2014

 Size:30 x 40  Oil on Canvas.
Sold Commissioned Painting


I think I am calling it done. Painted to their favorite music, one of which is one of our family's favorite, John Ford Coley. Will have to cure three or four weeks and it will ship to Houston to its new home. This contemporary horse painting flies south in August. I love painting for clients and truly work hard to make the experience memorable. This painting will come with a hard back book covering the painting as it was created. It is all part of the finishing progress. Contact me if you are interested in a commissioned painting. 


I said to myself, “Come now, I will test you with pleasure to find out what is good.” But that also proved to be meaningless. “Laughter,” I said, “is madness. And what does pleasure accomplish?” Ecclesiastes 2:1

Breaking Light Progress with Texas Artist Laurie Pace, Contemporary Horse Paintings





Progress on Breaking Light
  ©+Laurie Pace       Graphics One Design 2014

 Size:40 x 30  Oil on Canvas.
Sold Commissioned painting.


The three main horses are established and I am working to see if I can hold at three or if a fourth has to be added. At this time in this contemporary horse painting I am working closely with the decorator and the collector to match up colors from the fabrics and paints in the room. This is often hard for me because I want bits and tastes of many colors.
I have finished it up and will post the final image tomorrow.


For with much wisdom comes much sorrow;

    the more knowledge, the more grief.
Ecclesiastes 1:18

Sold as a commissioned painting.


Building up the background with layers... and more layers of buttery paints.
This contemporary Horse Painting seems to explode across the canvas and I see a heart within. Things I cannot control will happen on this canvas.Things you cannot control will happen in your life.


 I, the Teacher, was king over Israel in Jerusalem.  I applied my mind to study and to explore by wisdom all that is done under the heavens. What a heavy burden God has laid on mankind!I have seen all the things that are done under the sun; all of them are meaningless, a chasing after the wind.

What is crooked cannot be straightened;
    what is lacking cannot be counted.

Ecclesiastes 1:12-15
