The Painting: Thick paint embraces the energy of this pony.

The Thought:  Tired but home late last night from a funeral of an old family friend. He was in that group of "Uncle" status.  A man well loved by many with his wit, his sense of humor and his intelligence. A man of God and a man of goodness to all who knew him. He touched many lives.
He is already sorely missed by many. 

As I sat in the church looking up, I first noted there was no stain glass window in the front sanctuary.  It was a huge window with large panes.  You could look up and see the sky...the blue sky with snowy white clouds billowing by.  At first I thought it strange not to have stain glass, but the longer I sat and pondered it, the more in awe I was of the simplicity of viewing the heavens and feeling so much closer to God.  There was nothing between the heavens and where I sat in the pew.  You were not contained in the were simply part of the heavens as you sat there.  I watched the sky as the clouds began to gather and darken.  I thought how exciting it was to see God's work happening right before my eyes as I was held captive by my seat and the show before me.

I need to sit sometime and do this at home.  Reconnect with the heavens.  It is harder here in Tall Tree as it is ALL TALL TREES.   Look around you today and see what you can celebrate watching something that is part of His moving world...ever changing and always in harmony giving and taking.  Remember how you use to lay back and look up at the clouds to see what shapes and things you could find in all the snowy white billows?

I believe God gives us all a purpose in life. Some people are supposed to help the sick, be a musician, or artist. The gift of art is the best way to show the true beauty of the world in many people’s eyes. Everybody has their own expression of everything. It’s amazing to see how the same subject can be interpreted in a million different ways. I see a lot of people paint horses and nature but Laurie takes it to a different level with her exploration of painting. I can definitely tell that Laurie’s drive is color. She uses the color so gallantly and captures the viewer’s eye instantly. Her technique of uses oils and painting with the palette knife transfers her paintings into pure energy . You can see the passion and love right in her paintings by using that technique. As a painter myself I love using that technique to give my paintings texture and some depth to them. I also like her exploration of painting horses in different ways: using unexpected colors, different painting techniques and some are contemporary looking giving the horse in her paintings life and a soul.
