Hiding Out with A Friend
Horse Oil Painting by Laurie Justus Pace

8 x 10 Gallery Wrap Canvas


From the easel yesterday another MY BUDDY AND ME! The moment of security when you nuzzle underneath in the protection of your best friend. Thick oils applied with a palette knife.

Underneath the protection of your best friend...that is easy enough to expand on this morning. My eyes are a bit bleary from not being awake yet. Lately as I have felt overwhelmed by the surmounting cost of the money pit we live in, I remind myself that the Lord brought us to this house and here we are under His protection. We are busy nurturing this house back to life and there is much more to go. Under His protection we can only proceed in faith that He will provide what is needed for us to progress. Receiving two bills yesterday, one for the heater at $4200 and one from the plumber for $2400...I was in a panic. Within second though, I felt a calmness and knew I just had to work a bit harder, paint a bit more and with my application of time and my gift I can handle this.

Yesterday morning Kay came to paint! She found my work on the internet and emailed me. She lives less than 1/2 mile away and we had a wonderful time painting together. I miss Trina that used to come paint with me, so this is delightful to have Kay. We are closer in age, with grown children and have many common friends as I used to teach at the nearby elementary school where her children attended. It was heartening to catch up on many folks I had not seen in over 15 years. She will hopefully be back this morning to work too. I love the piece she is doing. She snapped some pictures of flowers at the Farmer's Market and that is what she is working on.

Feel His protection over you today in whatever you do.


"But let all who take refuge in you be glad; let them ever sing for joy. Spread your protection over them, that those who love your name may rejoice in you." Psalm 5:11
