Cut Away Over the Moon, Palette Knife Guitar Painting by Texas Artist Laurie Pace

Cut Away Over the Moon by ©Laurie Pace 2014

Cut Away Over the Moon
  ©+Laurie Pace       Graphics One Design 2014

 Size:24 x 36  Oil on Canvas.


This contemporary abstract painting is of my Taylor guitar. It is one of the loves of my life.  Custom made for me to play, small and easy to manage if we travel... and my arms never tire of stroking and holding her.

She is the inspiration of this painting. She has a 'cut away' at the top which for those of you that do not play guitar, it allows me to finger further on the neck of the guitar.   The "over the moon" part of the title is from the layers of music on the original surface.   

This palette knife Guitar painting was NOT as easy thing yesterday. I was on my feet over five hours as it evolved several directions. I painted it more like my old pear paintings of days almost ten years ago... and tried to keep the freshness of thick paint like my guitars of years ago.  Maybe it is time for more music in my life. 

Lord, our Lord, how majestic is your name in all the earth! Psalm 8:9

Not here yet.... Contemporary Abstract in the making by Laurie Pace



Not here yet...
  ©+Laurie Pace       Graphics One Design 2014

 Size: 24 x 36  Unsure what media...but so far paper and acrylic in this contemporary abstract painting.


You know how things do not always go as you think they will? Life seems to happen doesn't it.  Well it did. I worked this out with a few layers of acrylic polished in by fingers, soft cloth and rubbed off with paper towel.  I did not want to rush the painting. Not sure still if it will be horses or something musical.  Will you come back tomorrow if I promise it will be finished?  It will.  Nothing will come between me and this canvas till then.


In peace I will lie down and sleep,
    for you alone, Lord,

    make me dwell in safety  Psalm 4:8

Something is coming... Not sure what... by Laurie Pace








Something is coming!
  ©+Laurie Pace       Graphics One Design 2014

 Size: 24 x 36  Not sure.


I have pre layered torn music and book on this canvas. At this time I do not know what I am painting tomorrow but I am ready! Come back tomorrow for the finished painting.

That is how life should be... not be worried about tomorrow when you finish your day... let night refresh you with sleep and keep an open heart and hands for what God brings you tomorrow.

I have chosen the way of faithfulness; I have set my heart on your laws.
Psalm 119:30 NIV

Florida Sunrise Painted Ponies by Texas Artist Laurie Pace, Contemporary Horse Paintings



Florida Sunrise

Florida Sunrise by Laurie Pace

 Size: 15 x 30  Oil on Canvas.


My cousin was here from Florida with her lovely granddaughter. We spent time all over Dallas and also time with the guitar, harp and in the studio painting horses. From our trips to the beach in Florida, the blues of the water and the brilliant blue skies and bright yellow sun plays through my memory bank providing colors for this Painted Pony Pull. 

It is unusual because it is the count of 8 ponies and I usually paint odd numbers.  Just seem to fit better as I worked across finding horses in the paint. 


His splendor was like the sunrise; rays flashed from his hand, where his power was hidden.  Habakkuk 3:4

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

Horse 54 Summer Twilight by Laurie Pae

Horse 54  Summer Twilight
  ©+Laurie Pace       Graphics One Design 2014

 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.
