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

It took awhile to get this where I felt in sync with the process and the lower layers bleeding through. That is how life is. Where we have been is always apart of who we are today. This is available on my website above.  Vivid contrasting colors in this contemporary horse painting bring it to play a strong point in any room.   Some close ups. Click on them to see the layers beneath.





And you also were included in Christ when you heard the message of truth, the gospel of your salvation. When you believed, you were marked in him with a seal, the promised Holy Spirit  
Ephesians 1:13

Country and Western Music seems to penetrate my foggy summer brain in this heat. I do believe it is the restful cadence to the sounds.  This painting as the music of Marv Green in it with AMAZED, the song.  


So I just happened to have a music book from the early nineties with the actual music in it... and that with some carefully chosen Bible verses...the background has been laid in on this contemporary horse painting.

This is a prior horse painting now with new colors and new layers and a new look. Imagine yourself under the big top... I remember going to the circus a few times, Ringling Brothers in Dallas when they came.  When you are little everything is magnified to you, the lights, the colors, the action... it is all so impressive and at times even scary.  When the horse is brushed to shine, you can almost see the reflection of lights on its coat. In the patterns of the horse you can see the tight rope walkers, the clowns and the acrobats.


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

Still working on my 100 horse paintings for this year... small affordable ones for collectors.  This one is named for the scene outside my window...storms to the west, all dissipating before they arrive at our house. I can only gaze into the storm, not actually feel the rain! Contemporary Palette Knife Horse Paintings alway lead to lots of layering of paint. Here is a close up. Click it to see it large.


August really caught me off guard. I believe that July was such a huge month filled with too many parties and too much food that I am paying for it now. Layered on too much cake and too many times eating out!

Throw in Texas heat in the 100's and you gotta know where I am. 
Change is surrounding us daily in our lives. Trying to spool down to less stress reactions to the change is hard for me.  Trying to pick up my guitar more, play my piano more and I am cross stitching a baby blanket for the new coming grand-baby due early next year. 

I have decided I HAVE to start doing a studio letter once a month.  I firmly believe that people do not have time to read blogs every day. I do it for google to keep my work out there and it is a must to sell artwork. If you are anything like me, you probably delete this if it comes in email every morning.... if you did not delete it, you might sign up for my Studio letter and I will promise to try and get back in the habit!

Been There... Completed Contemporary Horse Painting by Texas Artist Laurie Pace

 Size:30 x 40  Oil on Canvas.


It is finished... I can say I have been there officially.  The composition of this painting literally grew from the story that I felt in my body of the daily movement of the world and the sun and moon.  Inside that is the movement of each of us... routinely doing the same thing over and over again.  You have been there I am sure!

This contemporary horse painting uniquely captures that moment that you realize it is time to do new things and bring new moments into your lives.



I denied myself nothing my eyes desired;
    I refused my heart no pleasure.
My heart took delight in all my labor,
    and this was the reward for all my toil.
Yet when I surveyed all that my hands had done
    and what I had toiled to achieve,
everything was meaningless, a chasing after the wind;
    nothing was gained under the sun. Ecclesiastes 2:10-11
