Available Paintings by Laurie Pace 

I really sweated and work through this one. Totally different palette, out of the box AND the studio for me.  I would think I had it complete, take images and look at them in reverse in Photoshop and race back into the studio, moving around the thick layers of paint, adjusting here and there and back up to photoshop... I must have been up and down the stairs 15 trips as this one came to it's finish.  I sent photos of it off to Steve at Mirada for first 'look' and it shall indeed be heading to Mirada Fine Art in Denver and will be available soon. If you find yourself in love...with the painting, please email ME or email STEVE.

If you declare with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you profess your faith and are saved. Romans 10:9-10

Available Paintings by Laurie Pace 

The texture in this painting is quite evident. The foundation again was paper from books and then paint. Please visit my website to see close up images of each of my paintings.

 Here are pictures of the garden as I promised. Terry is working on it still today so I will post more.  Lady L comes to help daily and she gets 25 cents for watering every day.  She posed as a scarecrow in the last picture.

This weekend is Easter weekend so I am off the computer for the next 48 hours. I will prepost a painting for tomorrow. 

Blessings for Abundance, of love and joy.

Horse 27 Four in a Row
9 x 12 inches Oil on Canvas. SOLD
Available Paintings by Laurie Pace 

Well, I was working on a large 32 x 48 inch painting and I had some leftover paint.  I was brought up not to waste things so of course I had some prepared boards, this one had pages from my old Bible on it along with four pages from a western novel and it was all just 'sitting' there waiting for paint—patiently I might add.

So I brought this one over and began to work the paint, spinning the canvas and rotating it as I applied the paint.  Think it went well. As I posted on my website last night, it was only up about 30 seconds and someone bought it. BUT the good news is ... I listed several new pieces so go check them out.

Terry has been so busy building things in the backyard and I need to go out and take pictures to share.  I worked painting until near nine last night and had to prepare everything in photoshop so it was a late night for me working. Terry is creating such a gorgeous haven for us to relax in and I did spend an hour sitting outside with him as he worked building a picket fence.  He wins my heart over and over every day. 


Let no debt remain outstanding, except the continuing debt to love one another, for whoever loves others has fulfilled the law. Romans 13:8

Exhausted
24 x 24 inches Oil on Canvas.SOLD
Available Paintings by Laurie Pace 

This painting lives on the East Coast with one of my favorite collectors.  They have horses, mixed media piano pieces, this one and more.  This best describes me at the moment.  Gardening, planting, teaching Lady L with homeschool each day, cooking, cleaning and still managing to keep up with Visual Language Magazine and Artists of Texas.

God has slowed me down a bit with some mitral valve issues, but I know I am doing wrong when I do it. Drinking more coconut water for the potassium.  Did you realize MOST of you do not have enough potassium in your body?  You might read up on it.  I add the coconut water or carrot juice to my day every day on top of a supplement of potassium/magnesium.  Terry and I both take it.  

Yesterday, Tuesday... was a beautiful day. Started out really cold but by noon we were outside working on the roses, pruning and spraying them. Terry started building a picket fence around the garden. Lady L came over for two hours of math and then we left for home depot. More plants came home with the wood to finish the picket fence.  Yes today is another day.


I have not stopped giving thanks for you, remembering you in my prayers.  I keep asking that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the glorious Father, may give you the Spirit[f] of wisdom and revelation, so that you may know him better. 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 1:16-19

Orange Tennis Shoes by Texas Artist Laurie Pace

Orange Tennis Shoes
8 x 12 inches Oil on Canvas.
Available Paintings by Laurie Pace 

It had something to do with a wedding. I think the groom is wearing orange tennis shoes.  A small commission duplicating the Pink Tennis shoes I painted back in 2008 that were Lady L's shoes.

You see, at just the right time, when we were still powerless, Christ died for the ungodly. Very rarely will anyone die for a righteous person, though for a good person someone might possibly dare to die. But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us. Romans 5:6-8

Horse 31 Stopping for Water
9 x 12 inches Oil on Canvas.
Available Paintings by Laurie Pace 

I loved the colors in this horse painting. It is like a plate full of veggies with deep rich vibrant hues contrasting and playing with the eye as it discovers the horses.  Still getting stronger at this to try it on a larger surface. That may be next tomorrow.

Today is Palm Sunday, rich with meaning for our family and filled with memories of past Easter seasons. 

Also, I want to add a Happy Birthday today to my youngest brother.... a joy to our family from the day he was born.

One of my favorite images is my Dad and Lady L on Dad's last Easter with us in this lifetime. This was in 2011. My dad loved this great grand-daughter and was always smiling when he saw her. 


Now when they drew near to Jerusalem and came to Bethphage, to the Mount of Olives, then Jesus sent two disciples, saying to them, “Go into the village in front of you, and immediately you will find a donkey tied, and a colt with her. Untie them and bring them to me. If anyone says anything to you, you shall say, ‘The Lord needs them,’ and he will send them at once.” This took place to fulfill what was spoken by the prophet, saying, “Say to the daughter of Zion, ‘Behold, your king is coming to you, humble, and mounted on a donkey, and on a colt, the foal of a beast of burden.’”
Matthew 21:1-11

Horse 30 In The Pink Horse Painting by Texas Artist Laurie Pace

In The Pink
9 x 12 inches Oil on Canvas.
Available Paintings by Laurie Pace 

Yes, so Lady L was visiting and we always visit the color Pink. I used the same new approach with this painting as I did the first two.  It truly is a 'freeing' feeling when working over these small canvas. Not sure how it will work on a larger horse painting.

Terry is off restriction now with his eyes. He is building square foot gardening in our back yard. We bought all the organic peat moss, organic compost and the vermiculite to fill each of the four beds with. Lady L will be over helping with the planting and hopefully later with harvesting and eating.  I am making out a list today of what we are growing.  Pumpkins are at the top of Lady's L's list. We may have to grow those at her house. I remember my mother growing watermelons in the dogrun out in the backyard when we were growing up. She had stopped using the dog run for the dogs.. .it was a wide one with a white picket type fence and inside she planted the watermelons.  Personally I love honey dew and cantaloupe too!

So in Christ Jesus you are all children of God through faith. 
Galatians 3:26
