'Spring Recital' Child on Piano Painting by Texas Artist Laurie Pace

'Spring Recital'
18 x 24  Mixed Medium on Canvas

The NY Gallery is relocating at the end of this year. I had the owner send back some of
my favorite pieces so they were not included in the relocation sale.
available for sale directly from me.

I do not do very many of these keeping them highly collected. They are done with antique music from my grandfather. Most music from 1895-1925.

Contact me to purchase by check or paypal. Laurie

The Thought:  A wild day of COLD weather at last.  We have waited a long time!  It is not going to freeze tonight but it will be done in the forties.  We are still waiting for a freeze for bugs to be deleted from our lives for  a few short months.

I hit the wall yesterday morning.  It was one phone call with one person asking for one more thing from me that I cannot give any longer and I lost it.  I handed Terry the phone and I literally hit the piano fingers flying and played hard and nonstop for almost an hour until I cried myself out.  I went from classical music to my hymnal. When I play out of the hymnal I start at the front and work my way back. It takes almost three hours to play every hymn.... I only went about 25 pages in... and I was calm again. Sometimes I think my music is like prayer.  Funny  things is when I play out of the hymnal I feel my grandmother's presence like she is in the room with her knitting listening to me play, just like she did when I was growing up.   So I felt God wrapped around me and her sitting near by just smiling with those clicking knitting needles.  I got up calm.

Do you have something you do that connects you to Him besides just words or prayers?  Believe it or not washing dishes is another place I connect.   Whatever it is you do, celebrate it. Every contact you make with Him is vital to you in your life.  Through words, actions and thoughts...He is there always.

So today it was appropriate to put up my Piano painting as a reminder of His grace....


"Restore to me the joy of your salvation, and sustain in me a willing spirit."--Psalm 51:12
