Contemporary Horse Paintings Loosing Direction at Mirada Fine Art by Texas Artist Laurie Pace

Loosing Direction 
30 x 40 inches Oil on Canvas. 

This contemporary horse painting resides at Mirada Fine Art in Denver. 
Heavy Knife action fills every nook and cranny of this palette knife painting.  It was a puzzle as it built slowly over about a week's period, but the end result was astonishing.   
Contact Steve at Mirada to purchase


A good friend shared something with me recently about life. 

"Ready or not, some day it will all come to an end.
                           
There will be no more sunrises, no minutes, hours, or days.               
All the things you collected, whether treasured or forgotten, 
will pass to someone else.


Your wealth, fame, and temporal power will shrivel to irrelevance.
   
It will not matter what you owned or what you were owed.
  Your grudges, resentments, frustrations, and jealousies will finally disappear.
                                                                                                        
So too your hopes, ambitions, plans, and to-do lists will expire.
 The wins and losses that once seemed so important will fade away.
   
It won't matter where you came from or what side of the tracks you lived on at the end.
 It won't matter whether you were beautiful or brilliant.
                  Even your gender and skin color will be irrelevant.
              
So what will matter? How will the value of your days be measured?
What will matter is not what you bought, but what you built.
Not what you got, but what you gave.

What will matter is not your success, but your significance.

What will matter is not what you learned, but what you taught.

What will matter is every act of integrity, compassion, courage, or sacrifice that enriched, empowered, or encouraged others to emulate your example.

What will matter is not your competence, but your character.

What will matter is not how many people you knew, but how many will feel a lasting loss when you're gone.

What will matter is not your memories, but the memories that live in those who loved you.

What will matter is how long you will be remembered, by whom, and for what.

Living a life that matters doesn't happen by accident.
It's not a matter of circumstance but of choice." 

Thank you Michael for sharing.
