Spring Princess Finished Horse Painting by Texas Contemporary Equine Artist Laurie Pace

Spring Princess
I finished this last night. I went with a toned down darker background. It was lighter and very chaotic.  I wanted the horse to dominate.  It is not quite as dark as this image shows. The light was not good for the photography end of this.  This is a different approach for me. If you follow my horse paintings, you know I tend to pull toward the abstract.  The painting is finished withe deep sides continuing on with the content of the mane and the horse itself.
Thank you Darci at the Double HP Rescue for sharing your horses with me.

Late Night Early Morning

Okay so last night I blew it.  I was watching a Kate Hudson movie called You and Me Dupree and fell asleep about 10:30 only an hour into it.  I woke up at 11:30 and Terry was still out in the den watching the Borne Identity.  So I flipped on The Proposal with Sandra Bullock. The bad thing was Terry finally came in at midnight but my movie did not end until 2 a.m.  I was up this morning by 7:30...and we were out for an early  morning walk.  That is why my blog is late this morning.

We killed our first copperhead this season. NO PICTURES. I am NOT a snake lover.  We will be making a trip to Lowes for more Snake Away.  Nothing like the comforting smell of mothballs and sulfur.

Today will take us to Frisco for a wedding shower. Terry will go south to Asel and pick up my supplies and then we will head home by nightfall. 

I was glad to finish this painting last night. I am painting for the Denver show and I always leave things hanging in the studio for a few days to make final adjustments as they 'grow' on me.

We enjoyed our walk this morning. The sun is out over the lake and the breeze is strong enough for wind warnings.  Terry would be tempted to go sailing if we were not leaving.  A no-no with wind-warnings.

I do believe we get 'warnings' in life and we constantly ignore them.  That inner voice usually has the right answer. When you know deep inside that something is not right, IF you have any flicker of a second thought ...DO NOT DO IT.

Be with Him today and give thanks and He will abundantly provide for you.


“The Son is the radiance of God’s glory and the exact representation of his being, sustaining all things by his powerful word. After he had provided purification for sins, he sat down at the right hand of the Majesty in heaven.” - Hebrews 1:3
