Wildlife Wolf Painting WISE ONE by Texas Artist Laurie Pace

Wise One Finished! Well, maybe...

I have left Wise One Wolf Painting on the easel to dry and sent images to my galleries. Also gave options if I black out the background which is what 
most of my past wolves have had. See images below.

With a black background? or gray?  I think it is fine..but who knows....


 This is the original sketch from my sketch book that I painted from... free hand sketching done while TP and I are sitting together at night in the den. He is usually watching TV and I am painting or sketching.

 This is WISE ONE in the studio on the easel.

NIGHT POWER was my first wolf painting back in 2007 I believe. It is with a collector in California. It has that powerful black background.

Following the Path

Staying focused is not always possible when one multi-tasks as much as I do. Once I begin a painting and the music is on, I am focused. The energy from the music and the brilliance of colors building on the keeps me pumped and working in joyful abandonment.  I forget and leave behind me all my stress and troubles and I simply paint.   I never doubt the path I am on because I am trusting in God's touch flowing through me to the canvas.  Often there are amazing results and occasionally I go HUH?

Staying on track I pray on and off while I work, often murmuring "Okay Lord, this is you working and not me"  I try to stay totally open to new ways to see the piece as it develops.  My final test is in photoshop when I look at the image in reverse. I know then if I am truly on the right path if the image holds up in reverse. That is where everything looks new from a different perspective. You can see where your values work and do not work. You note where balance or perspective is off... seeing things from a different angle always helps.

In life it is true God is directing you around obstacles that might normally take you down or on a path you should not go. Listen to the small voice inside of you. It is Him talking.  Give good to others along the way and be blessed to be a blessing.

"We are what he has made us, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand to be our way of life." Ephesians 2:10
