Horse 60 Cold Front Moving In, Contemporary Horse Paintings by Texas Artist Laurie Pace

Horse 60 Cold Front Moving In

  ©+Laurie Pace       Graphics One Design 2014

 Size: 8 x 8  Oil on Canvas Board
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

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

Wishful thinking...Cold Front Moving In, but this was painted a few weeks ago when we actually had one move through and had wonderful weather in the 70's and 80's for three days.  I wish I may, I wish I might, have my wish come true tonight!

There is a circular movement underlaying in this composition and a strong pull of blues across the top moving off the edge of the canvas. The two horses seem to be coming closer together as the weather turns from the heat leaving on the left side and the cold air blowing in on the right side. Click through on Available paintings to see close up shots in detail of the artwork.

As the seasons change we begin to feel and anticipate the change.  Reminds me of the first day of school and all the nervous energy just before you step into your first classroom of the fall semester.  Ready for new good things to happen.  We do not have to wait for the changing of seasons for this, but as weather begins to change our bodies anticipate what is coming.  It is a process of renewing and reenergizing. Take time to realize the possibilities open for your own life.  Use your imagination feel that hope rising up inside of you. There is potential you have not even tapped yet. Resolve to use the gifts that are untouched. Use these gifts to make those dreams come true. That is why God gave them to you. 

I the Lord make myself known to them in visions; I
 speak to them in dreams.  Numbers 12:6

 Size: 8 x 10  Oil on Canvas Board.
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Merry Go Rounds bring back memories of country fairs and city amusement parks. Always a safe ride and one where you enjoy the beauty of the horses. Carefully choosing your favorite, you climb up and enjoy the ride. Each horse has a unique identity and one calls to your heart.  
This painting is one of my signature painted ponies pulled with Holbein Oil Paints on a Canvas Board. It will require a frame to hang.
This painting is part of my 2014  - 100 Horse Paintings.   They are a collectible affordable favorite for my buyers. Larger pieces of work can be purchased through my representing galleries.

Horse 66 Leaves of Fall Horse Painting by Texas Artist Laurie Pace

Early thoughts of fall.  No leaves falling but the dead ones on our burr oak in the front yard. I am not sure it will make the winter so we have to wait until Spring to know if it has to be replaced.  Both color and line bring the energy into this contemporary horse painting.  Strong colors and thick layering of paint. Won't be dry to ship until the end of September.  I am wondering if I will make all 100 small pieces this year.

I paint these small paintings for collectors to buy and enjoy. They are done on Canvas Board and have to be framed, but it is all I can offer of what are considered practice paints for larger pieces. Find your favorite on my website above with available paintings. 

Still have not gone anywhere for vacation since 2010.  I keep hinting about traveling to Toronto.  Would love to visit Canada as the leaves are turning or at least upper state New York.   Have you gone somewhere special this year to feed your soul? 


The wolf will live with the lamb,
    the leopard will lie down with the goat,
the calf and the lion and the yearling[a] together;
    and a little child will lead them. Isaiah 11:6

Horse 65 Saving Grace, Contemporary Horse Painting by Texas Artist Laurie Pace



  ©+Laurie Pace       Graphics One Design 2014

 Size: 8 x 8  Oil on Canvas.
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

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

Bright Yellows with the Texas heat this week. In the studio horses are gathering as I am back full time painting... or almost!  We have 100 plus temps that are to be falling into the mid nineties this coming weekend.  The long term forecast is for a rainy fall... WHERE IS THE RAIN???

Saving Grace was entitled so because of God's saving grace for each of us. So much turmoil in the world along with the turmoil in our everyday lives. It is only through His Saving Grace that make it through each minute, or it is for our family.  This small painting is a tribute to the summer and the heat and the knowledge of His saving grace working for each of us no matter what is happening everywhere.  

Terry is the saving grace for our trees. We are still nurturing last year's planted Red Oak and Crepe Myrtle's and this year Burr Oak and third Crepe Myrtle. They all have different watering schedules and he has been a champ keeping up with it. All those roses we nurtured indoors through the winter last year have thrived in their new beds and I have had roses all summer.  Heading into September soon, I long for those cooler nights back in the sixties.... I know the cooling grace is on its' way and pray dearly for the rainy grace to be with it. We are in a huge drought and have been since 2008.

A shoot will come up from the stump of Jesse;
    from his roots a Branch will bear fruit.
 The Spirit of the Lord will rest on him—
    the Spirit of wisdom and of understanding,
    the Spirit of counsel and of might,
    the Spirit of the knowledge and fear of the Lord—
and he will delight in the fear of the Lord.
Isaiah 11:1-3

Worked on this contemporary horse painting for a week time period even though it is smaller than my normal paintings. That is why I am including it in my fun 100 horses this year.  Click here to see the painting and close ups.    It is a story teller and that is why it is entitled Traveling Home. 

No matter where we go the constant of God is with us and the journey home. We are all on a journey from birth to death.  Hence came the name "Traveling Home".  

Great peace have those who love your law, and nothing can make them stumble.
Psalm 119:165 NIV

White Arabian Nights, Horse Painting by Texas Artist Laurie Pace

 Size: 30 x 30  Mixed Media on Canvas.SOLD
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Painted back in Spring of 2009, this too is a popular painting that is ordered in prints from Fine Art America. Order one here. 

Unfortunately, I have also seen this posted on other artist's sites as their own and never have totally understood why anyone would do that.  Know who you are as a person and love and accept yourself and your gifts.  Be Truthful.

When we limit our thinking to 'I can't do it', or 'this is too much for me', we are doing more harm.  God Spirit will revel the truth to your soul and to you if your heart and ears are open to hear him.  Try speaking the truth about the positives you have working for you.  It can include your gifts from God, your family, your workplace, your friends... etc.  Affirm that you are a loved child of God and worthy of so much more.  Affirm the harmony and prosperity He promises to you.  

Actual truth is unchanging. Nothing can take away from it or diminish it. Truth is made of love, peace, health and eternal goodness.  Look at your life with clear eyes and see the truth of who you are.  God's truth is waiting to be active in you.  


"Teach me your way, O Lord, that I may walk in your truth; give me an undivided heart to revere your name." Psalm 86:11

Purple Horse, Contemporary Horse Paintings by Texas Artist Laurie Pace



  ©+Laurie Pace       Graphics One Design 2014

 Size: 18 x 27  Oil on Canvas. Sold
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- 

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

This contemporary purple horse is another favorite on Fine Art America. Painted back in about 2008, there is something awing about the colors that pulls to certain people. You can buy a print here.

With the strong purples and accent colors, the painting is a positive bold horse painting. There is power with the strength from the colors. It is not the best facial horse, yet in the movement, something draws people in.

Have you ever suffered from a disease or a condition that literally sucked all your strength both physically and mentally?  Often our negative thoughts and fears keep us from finding our God Strength and Power deep inside of us.  It is often hard to not feel bound by limitations. God does not know limitations. Giving up false beliefs to allow Him to work in your life is not easy. "the one who is in you is greater than the one who is in the world."  1 John 4:4
