Contemporary Art Daily Painting Portrait of a Child by Laurie Justus Pace

24 x 30 inches Oil on Canvas


Contact me to paint someone special in your life: Laurie

I was searching through pictures for my new book that I am compiling similar to this blog and came across "Krysta". She was one of my art students for 6 years and as she grew I used her often as a model. I think you can see why. She had those eyes that just held the world. This was painted four years ago but I wanted to share it! This is the type painting I LOVE doing but it takes weeks to finish one like this.

When doing a painting for someone I pride myself in the personal touch department. PTD. It would be great if we taught PTD in the classroom. PTD would be responsible for teaching our children to do acts of kindness with a personal touch. Helping an elderly lady with her bags of groceries; walking the neighbor's dog; throwing your neighbor's newspaper up by their front door; giving someone your seat when a room is full of people. These are all small things but things that flow from the spirit that lives within each of us.

Add a little PTD to you day today and see what small kindnesses you can do.

Don't forget to check out my blog for my fictional book:



"But a Samaritan while traveling came near him; and when he saw him, he was moved with pity. He went to him and bandaged his wounds, having poured oil and wine on them. Then he put him on his own animal, brought him to an inn, and took care of him."--Luke 10:33-34
