Flowers in My Room
Flower Floral Art Oil Painting by Laurie Justus Pace

18 x 24 inches
Inquiries: Laurie

It will be a musical day today as I will begin prep this morning on several new musical pieces. Yesterday I finished this one and truly enjoyed painting every bit of it. It is a subdued color palette for me. Refreshingly different.

Once someone ask me how I paint every day...they wanted to know how I come up with so many subjects to paint. Every morning when I wake I cannot wait to paint. I truly dislike all the computer related stuff, but I make myself blog before I get to play. I have learned to take more precautions and I always wear gloves now. Everything else is sheer energy as I soar through the process, music playing and paint flying.

My constant inspiration is the Lord and His creation around me. He makes it easy. From each painting something is learned as I journey through the process. With movement on the canvas building the composition, it stays open to change as my heart and mind stay tuned to the possibilities that are there before me. I chuckle when I think of working on the computer as I am doing graphics for an ad... and I can "go Backwards" "Step Backwards" up to 25 clicks I believe. That doesn't work in life or on my canvas. I encourage students when they are giving up on a piece, NOT TO. There is something there, step away, meditate and return to work. Every time an unbelievable piece of art emerges.

Our lives are like this too. If we allow divine order to process and move through us, all our experiences in life are leading to the next lesson. We have to learn to trust the Spirit within. We must have courage to make decisions and act on them with confidence.


"I can do all things through him who strengthens me." Philippians 4:13

this is beautifel, Laurie! It shows your other "true colors", I think...
Not always are life's colors loud, vivacious, and "in your face" - from what I know about your current life, these colors fit better for right now, so I'm not surprised at seeing them - they seem to just express a wish from your heart for some calm, serene, peaceful, and pretty times. Keep painting - those times are headed your way!

Give "Mom" my love - hope she's feeling MUCH better.
Tell the b'day gang a happy belated birthday from me, and give Tink a pat on the belly for me.
