Crawl Between the Spaces of the Notes, Mixed media Music Painting by Laurie Pace




  ©+Laurie Pace       Graphics One Design 2015

He Lives Size: 18 x 24  Mixed Media on Canvas.
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

“Music was my refuge. I could crawl into the space between the notes and curl my back to loneliness.” ― Maya Angelou

I was sorting through images for something to post from the past. Usually Mondays are from the past.  I discovered several of my music pieces and it truly moved my heart that I may want to do another one this summer. 

I love Maya Angelou's thoughts about crawling into the space between the notes.  I crave my piano and guitar for that same reason.  This morning I spent over 90 minutes playing the piano and the guitar. It was AWESOME!!!   

Lady L will begin piano lessons this month AND we are already learning chords on her guitar. I hope you keep music alive in your life and your heart.

"Being confident of this, that he who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus." Philippians 1:6 NIV

To Make you Feel my Love... Abstract Monotone Horse Paintings by Texas Artist Laurie Pace




  ©+Laurie Pace       Graphics One Design 2015

Evening Shadows When Stars Appear  Size: 30x40  Oil on Canvas. Available at Mirada Fine Art, Denver. Email Steve. 
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

When the evening shadows and the stars appear
And there is no one there to dry your tears
I could hold you for a million years
To make you feel my love. Bob Dylan


Yes I was listening to Garth Brooks when I painted this piece and named it. The words are by Bob Dylan. Should have figured that one out. 

This painting is available at Mirada Fine Art in Denver. You can email Steve here. 

This black and white series really brought out depth in my work as I explored it. I do believe I love it as much as I do the full color painting. It was time to climb out of the box and try something new last fall and I was brave and carried through. With the work came a new strength and resolve, not in my artwork but inside of me.

"Give and it will be given to you. A good measure, pressed down, shaken together, running over, will be put into your lap; for the measure you give will be the measure you get back." Luke 6:38

Joyfully,
Laurie

Borrowing from the Barn... Contemporary Horse Painting, Appaloosa by Laurie Pace


  ©+Laurie Pace       Graphics One Design 2015

Appy  Size: 30 x 30  Oil on Canvas. Sold
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

“In riding a horse, we borrow freedom” ― Helen Thompson

This appaloosa was painted back in fall of 2006. It was a favorite of mine.  One day I would love to attempt a repaint but I know it will never catch the same spirit.  It has been the cover of the National Appaloosa magazine and made into posters at their national convention. 

Painting horses is a freeing experience. Riding them gives so much more freedom.. feeling the wind against you, leaning into the horse and feeling as one as you gallop forward. I hope people can feel the energy and freedom in my work.

"This day is holy to our Lord; and do not be grieved, for the joy of the Lord is your strength." Nehemiah 8:10

Shalom, 
Laurie

Sunrise and comes the light... Abstract Contemporary Horse Paintings by Texas Artist Laurie Pace


  ©+Laurie Pace       Graphics One Design 2015

Horse 32 Bolting at Sunrise  Size: 9 x 12  Oil on Canvas.
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

“At sunrise everything is luminous but not clear.” ― Norman Maclean


Strong contrast with the horse bolting forward.  The browns, purples and golds meld together behind the strong white bold strokes. 


You cannot deny the power and spirit of this small collectible...

You have a purpose in this lifetime.  If you follow the path of your divine purpose, you will live a prosperous life. That does not mean money necessarily, more like contentment and things that bring you great joy. The results of a prosperous life will be spiritual, emotional, physical as well as material.  

Listen to the small voice inside of you as it guides you through the obstacles ahead. You will be enriched with every experience as you give to others and receive back in kind.

"We are what he has made us, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand to be our way of life." Ephesians 2:10

Prosper today...

The Trust of Animals, Figurative Fun Paintings by Laurie Pace

  ©+Laurie Pace       Graphics One Design 2015

Girl and Goat 2  2006  Oil on Canvas. Sold
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

“From sunrise to sunset, I was in the forest, sometimes far from the house, with my goat who watched me as a mother does a child. All the animals in the forest became my friends, even dangerous and poisonous ones. Thanks to my goat-mother and my Indian nurse, I have always enjoyed the trust of animals--a precious gift. I still love animals infinitely more than human beings.” ― Diego Rivera

I cannot ever say I have been up close and personal with a goat.  I have with dogs, cats, horses, cows, donkeys, etc... but not a goat. I did a series of girl and goat paintings years and years ago. You can tell by the free paint and less worry that it was an earlier time in my career. 

My art is my precious gift and for that I am thankful and blessed. As mentioned often with every blessing come lessons to learn and every day I paint, I discover more.  I discover more about life, about people and about myself.

"Jesus said to him, "if you are able! All things can be done for the one who believes." Mark 9:23

Shalom, 
Laurie

Keep Truth in your Sight... Landscape Paintings by Laurie Pace




  ©+Laurie Pace       Graphics One Design 2015

Reflections 15 x 30  Oil on Canvas. Sold
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

“It is when you lose sight of yourself, that you lose your way. To keep your truth in sight you must keep yourself in sight and the world to you should be a mirror to reflect to you your image; the world should be a mirror that you reflect upon.” ― C. JoyBell 

Do you ever sit and reflect on things in life?  An artist often uses a mirror reflection of a painting to see where the composition may be off or need work. A reflection is more honest to the artist than looking directly at the painting. Seeing things in reverse always show up every imperfection.

So are reflections on life good or bad?

"We all know that all things work together for good to those who love God, who are called according to his purpose." Romans 8:28

Working with you...
Laurie

I am Becoming Part of the Past... Contemporary Western Horse paintings by Laurie Pace



  ©+Laurie Pace       Graphics One Design 2015

 Horse 31 . The Moment  Size: 8 x 10  Oil on Canvas.
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

“With each passing moment I'm becoming part of the past. There is no future for me, just the past steadily accumulating.” ― Haruki Murakami

I was grazing Google for a quote on Moments because of the title of the painting. There were so many good ones, but this one struck a chord immediately. With each passing moment we are becoming the past.  What we do each moment today is quickly building the past. 

I am not sure about the negative idea of no future because of my religious beliefs I do believe in life everlasting and this journey is an earthly journey. I do believe in future. I believe in miracles, good deeds, love and life. I believe in God. 

Still each day I build more of the past.  From words spoken to actions taken... they are piling up behind me.  

"When the Spirit of truth comes, He will guide you into all the truth." John 16:13

Shalom,
Laurie
