Unnamed Horse Painting by A Texas Artist Laurie Pace

Unnamed Horse Painting

I have begun this commissioned painting and am working closely with the collector on the presketch. He approved the paper sketch and this is the canvas with a light coat of acrylic paint and the horses drawn on in charcoal.

Taking the First Steps

We were watching a documentary on Netflix called BUCK and it was about a horse trainer.  The demonstration of how to lead a horse that is not wanting to budge was  a good lesson in how to deal with others in your life.  If you have been trying to train a horse and you firmly grab the lead rope and pull to get them to move that is definitely wrong.  Buck encouraged grasping the rope and gently taking up slack NOT trying to move them. It has to be their idea.

Artist Debbie Lincoln
Seems true with people.  We are jerked around all the time by others and we jerk others around.  What comes from gentleness is trust and positive response. Gentleness will establish a trust and that trust will build confidence between the horse and the trainer.  Works with people to. Once confidence is there, you can encourage steps past it into the unknown.

God encourages us in many ways to go forward.  He does not jerk at us... He patiently waits for us 'to get it' and move forward.  We are the worse in dwelling in the mire we are in and often afraid to go forward. 

Be it  a new job, a new painting, a new relationship, ... it is all the same. You can do it if you set your heart on it. God will provide everything you need as you take on new challenges in life.  Claim this abundance.

Words of my Heart, Laurie

"God is able to provide you with every blessing in abundance." 2 Corinthians 9:8
