Progression on Three Arabian Horse Painting by A Texas Artist Laurie Pace

Progression on Three Arabians
30 x 40 inches Oil on Canvas  

The journey continues as I paint... three Arabian horses which is SOLD and will live in the UK with a new collector.  

This couple has been a delight to work with and the music I paint by, chosen by them, is some of my favorite as well.  I have been reading in Psalms through out this past week but am into Luke this week as you can read about below. 

Follow along in the Spirit of the Paint...

Stones of the Heart

Weeping tears 
wash the dirt from rock
but not from my heart.

Silent thoughts scream
with echoes of memories past
piling beyond the limits of 
my mind.

Can I climb the pile to the
highest point to
see through eyes of grace?

Only through the giving of grace
can I clean my 
heart of hurt.

This morning he gave me a single stone
To always remind me 
The rock of grace withstands
The elements of life.  lpace

Thank you  for my 'rock' Pastor Jack Wallace, First United Methodist Church, Mount Vernon, Texas.

Jack had a large basket of stones for each member to take one before entering the sanctuary.  Being the hard core artist, I had to hand select and try out each 'rock' before I chose the one I wanted... I called it my "Worry Stone" because somewhere in my past an older relative told me to carry a worry stone in my pocket and every time I began to worry, to take the stone out and begin rubbing it with my thumb.   

So I took my hand selected stone into the service where again life changing things always seem to happen. 

When I left later,  this was now my Rock of Grace.  

Words of my heart, Laurie

"Peter replied, 'Man, I don't know what you're talking about!" Just as he was speaking, the rooster crowed.  The Lord turned and looked straight at Peter.  Then Peter remembered the word the Lord had spoken to him: "Before the rooster crows today, you will disown me three times."  Luke 22: 60-61

Pastor Jack reminded us that the Lord turned and looked straight at Peter through the eyes of grace.
