Spring Princess, Paint Pony Horse Painting by Texas Equine Artist Laurie Pace

Progression on Spring Princess
20 x 30 x 2 inches  Oil on Canvas
Available... but in progress...



I know several days ago I wrote about listening to that inner voice that pipes up when thoughts start rolling through your head and your are trying to make decisions.  Yesterday I loved the way Neale Donald Walsch put it in his email:

"On this day of your life, I believe God wants you to know...

...that a hunch is angel talk, and probably should not be

Listen to your hunches, pay attention to your intuition,
do not dismiss your random thoughts, inspirations or
ideas. Heaven talks in snippets, not in speeches. Angels
whisper fast. They have to when they're flying around...

Honor your Hints from Heaven. They could be giving
you the best advice you ever had.

I believe this to be true when I paint as well as in my life daily.   I work and work and think I am done with a painting, but an inner voice says, NO NO NO. You are not done.  The best thing for me is to step away and wait until the morrow to look it over and debate direction.   Yesterday I was working on the Spring Princess above. It is from a photo from Darcy in South Dakota at the Double HP Horse Rescue.  The horse is pretty good but the back ground is still undecided. Today I will return to the studio and work on it some more. (Darcy keeps me supplied with awesome photos from her babies. I love painting these horses. I usually know each of their rescue stories.  The group puts out a wonderful calendar every year as well. Click here to see their blog and buy a calendar.)

I did this a year ago with another painting in Acrylic and it became a favorite after I reworked it.  Dancing in the Moonlight. It went east to live... and it is in a treasured home...they have several commission paintings and then bought this one from me.

Now that does not cover the OTHER painting I started yesterday and overworked and by mid afternoon I had scrapped the canvas.  No telling what direction that one will go.  I trust that God knows.

Listen carefully to those little voices... as Neale says.. the Angels talk in whispers and if you do not stop to listen... you will never hear God.

“For Christ’s love compels us, because we are convinced that one died for all, and therefore all died. And he died for all, that those who live should no longer live for themselves but for him who died for them and was raised again.” - 2 Corinthians 5:14-15
