Arabian Gold in Progress Horse Painting by A Texas Artist Laurie Pace

Arabian Gold in Progress
24 x 48 inches  Oil on Canvas

This is zooming in close on one horse... I am using the trail of dust to insert jewel like tones. Why you ask? Because most Americans think of a desert as wasteland, heat and sand. It is not in the Middle East. Below the sands are the centuries of earth's formation of pools of oil and gas. The desert shimmers in the sunlight... tiny glass like reflections in colors... and below the real 'jewels' . The collector chose four black Arabians and wanted them to have power and strength. As I work on this horse painting, there are moments of hesitation and then the realization that going forward as I have it the only way to discover the true fabric weave of this painting. The 'soul' that makes it come to life to the viewer.

One Person at a Time... perfect Harmony

Must be the week of old camp songs.  Harmony, love and life. How does it all work in the world we live in?  One person at a time.

Remember the old Coca Cola song?

I am NOT promoting soft drinks. We have never kept them in the house except for company, but this commercial awakened the power of the sixties and seventies of make love not war.  My children sang this song. My Mother sang this song. I did not know anyone that did not know the song... 

The true essence is the gathering of people (here for coke) but in lives in harmony.  One person passes it on to the next and then there are two. The two each pass it on and then there are four. Exponentially it spreads through a community with joy and and harmony lighting the way.  No one is left in the dark. No one can be disconnected from the power... as it comes from one person to the next. No one will be skipped.  

We are all members of one family...we all live here on earth and we must learn to unite in harmony.

Words of my heart, Laurie

"You shall also love the stranger, for you were strangers in the land of Egypt." Deuteronomy 10:19
