Childrens Portraits by Texas Artist Laurie Pace

The Gang
SOLD Commission Painting
24 x 36 inches Oil on Canvas   
Portrait of the Five.
I loved painting this. I did it about a year ago. I have painted
these children on and off for the past seven years.  I have never
met them in person but I feel like I know them.

Short blog, quick morning.

The heat has really cranked up here in Texas. I have to get started earlier to get things done before it is too warm outside.  Terry has been getting up and mowing here and there every morning. He spent three hours yesterday weed eating the shore of the pond. It is very low right now.  He still winks at me and as he drives by on the riding mower...waving his red cap. Paddy barks at him and Annie runs the other direction to get away from the noise.

When you think of painting portraits like the one above, so much comes to mind about eyes, features, noses, inherited genes that create the person you are painting. I believe it helps to know something of the person and their personality. Often it gives insight to colors or tones in the skin or even the twinkle in the eye.

God created each of us individually with our goods and bads.  Today let's celebrate our goods. Make a list if you need to.  Think about all the characteristics you inherited from your relatives and who you are like physically as well as personality.  Sometimes God truly has a sense of humor.  Wish we could think so lightly of ourselves and focus on the giving and not the getting. What would your portrait of God look like?


“The father of a righteous child has great joy; a man who fathers a wise son rejoices in him.” Proverbs 23:24 NIV"
