Contemporary Horse Painting FULL MOON by Texas Equine Artist Laurie Pace

 Full Moon

This deviates from all the reds I have been painting.  Purple is my favorite color so I decided to use it in this elegant night horse painting.  I used both a palette knife and a wide brush working on this one. It may or may not be done... I will only post it again if I do make major changes.  She is really pretty in person.

Soothing and quiet...SHHH  you can here her hooves in the water breaking the silence of the moon.

You Can Get Glad Just like you Got Mad or Sad.

Quoting my awesomely wise father-in-law, Ben, who we lost last September... I have to jump in on this one this morning.  Change is inevitable. Change is constant. Change is not always what we want. Change occurs every single second of our life.

Change is not sad, nor is change happy.  Change is only Change.

Do you meet the changes and challenges in your life with a positive attitude? It is strictly your attitude that determines how change affects you.  If you resist it you are certain to be overwhelmed. Some things may hit you as positive and good, and others as negative and daunting.

Begin today with a positive attitude. No matter what changes today, prepare to meet it head on with this new positive attitude. An open mind will allow more blessings into your life. God has blessings and lessons 'attached' to every change in your life.

Loosing Ben last fall was expected and unexpected. Relief was there that he no longer struggled to breathe. Relief was there that his pain was over and it did not drag out over a year of battling for breath.

The hole in our life is HUGE.  We fill it with memories and lessons he shared throughout Terry's lifetime and our marriage. His bible is used in our home and we have files and files of his writings and jokes he shared in his Sunday School room when he taught.  He was the best example of meeting life with a positive attitude and sharing a smile with every single person he met.  (He also threw in some stories along the way!)

"For everything there is a season, and a time for every matter under heaven." Ecclesiastes 3:1

Love the picture of Ben on the right, Laurie. What a beautiful smile! And this is a beautiful post. It's a wonderful reminder of God's grace and our need to be thankful no matter what He allows into our lives. Praying you and your family have a blessed Easter.
