Abstract Horse Oil Painting by Laurie Justus Pace

15 x 30 inches


Yesterday was a full paint day and I will paint this morning and finish up some paper work and then head into the weekend with the thoughts of a day or two off from the studio.

Today I will finish up a greyhound soaring across a canvas and will start a horse painting for a collector in the UK. Then I may work on a ME piece...a painting with no rhyme or reason, but one for applying technique and care. ALSO have to finish a new PATINA 2 painting for Patina of Marble Falls. They sold Patina 1 and I will keep their series going with a new baby to send their way. All of the Patina Series are 3 ft by 4 ft and can be purchased through John Stange at Patina of Marble Falls. Watch for this after the weekend!

Rain is falling and the lightening is making a tremendous light show in the dark early morning sky. It is a fast moving storm though and is blowing through quickly. I can hear the birds in the pear tree outside on the side patio. My poor little Annie is shaking and hiding under my feet. I am typing with one hand and stroking her with the other. She is not a lover of storms. Usually we medicate her but this was a small storm and passed over quickly.

Storms seem to move into our personal lives suddenly and often send us to our knees or under the covers in bed. It is trusting protection from the Lord that assures us of our safety. He is our rock, our fortress, our shield, our stronghold and our strength. The umbrella of His protection shelters us from all storms in our lives. It does not mean we will stay dry, we won't. We will get wet and whatever waters we must wade through, He is next to us. When it gets too deep, trust He will carry you. His voice whispers in your heart encouraging and guiding you. You can hear it if your teeth stop chattering from fear and you calm yourself to listen to Him in the quiet between the rumbles of the storm. You are never alone to face the storm.


"Because you have made the Lord, who is my refuge, even the Most High, your dwelling place,no evil shall befall you, nor shall any plague come near your dwelling." Psalm 91:9-10
