Abstract Horse Painting Expressionism in Progress by Texas Equine Artist Laurie Pace

Progress on an Abstract Expressionistic Horse Painting
30 x 40 x 2 Inches  Mixed Media on Canvas

I am not sure of direction in the painting or the direction of the finished piece. 
I will be delivering pieces to Mirada this month for the July show, 
and also pieces to the Rare Gallery in Jackson Hole.

This is about 1/3 of the way done. The piles and layers of paint take days to build up. This is one day of work.

In my pea brain I often have this inner vision in my head of a painting. Of course that NEVER comes out on canvas the same way.  I cannot figure that out.  It probably would if I were leaning back to realism, but once I begin working with colors, scraping and layering, all previsions are off.  The paint has it's own idea of what it will do.

I have told you before I commit each piece to God for His spirit to work through me on the painting.  To take off painting onto the canvas with out some meditation would mean the painting would be lifeless.  Executed perhaps in my style, but with out a finish glow of finality that comes with most paintings.

This is true with life.  We have OUR PLANS, which we know are not His plans.  We have this vision of how life is suppose to turn out and how we think we can control it.  If we neglect to take that step of committing our decisions and plans to be in His name and His way, we will be scraping and layering our life together very painfully. (or rather paintfully!)

It is difficult to let go of what we want and what we envision for ourselves.  If you just try letting that part go and accepting with thanks what you have right now, you will find you have much more than you need.  Your life will be full. Honor Him. Thank Him. Glorify Him in the way you live your life.

“I saw the Holy City, the new Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared as a bride beautifully dressed for her husband. And I heard a loud voice from the throne saying, “Look! God’s dwelling place is now among the people, and he will dwell with them. They will be his people, and God himself will be with them and be their God. ‘He will wipe every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death’ or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away.”” Revelation 21: 2-4 NIV
