Blue Hills progresses, Landscape Painting by A Texas Artist Laurie Pace

Blue Hills Progression from my Studio
by Texas Artist Laurie Pace

40 x 40 inches Oil on Canvas

Yesterday I laid in the mid layers of paint on this Blue Hills Landscape Painting. This is all pure oils with out any impastos. Drying will take some time with the greens I am using. They take longer to cure for some reason. I am heading back in to paint more today.

is a state of consciousness containing peace.  Turning away from the chaos churning in our lives.  No TV, no music, no other voices, no noise... simple silence and with it comes peace.

When was the last time you went there? Eyes closed or open, your heart knows the way with its steady beating. I always think of Skaitook Lake in Oklahoma just outside of Tulsa.  It was a long ago day and my first ride on Terry's English Dart catamaran.  It was not a gusting windy day but enough to sail gently. I laid on the trampoline flat and closed my eyes feeling the cool spray of water across me, feeling the gentle slapping of water on the bottom of the trampoline and the warmth of the sun.  No words were spoken...only the gentle silence of peace.

That is where I go when things are tough.  After 22 years, I can still put myself on that trampoline and feel it all over again. All thoughts vanish and concerns fall away. 

So no matter what happens in life... I can find my peaceful silent place in just seconds.

Words of my heart, Laurie
