Available Paintings by Laurie Pace 

This painting was one of two painted for a commission for a collector in Florida in 2006. 
This one below was the second one completed in 2006 entitled:

Palm by Night 15 x 30 inches Oil. 

When Jim contacted me about palms trees and swamps, I swallowed hard and said, "Sure, I can do it." I have seen palms trees through out my life, but can easily tell you, never a swamp in person. He came up with six pictures and the composition settled on was a part of each of those pictures. I couldn't wait to paint as the colors began to settle on the canvas. The larger one was a six day painting with about five layers of paint. What is eerie good about it is as you settle into the painting looking at it, you feel the greenness of the shade and the glow of the area surrounding you. It is surrealistic in a way. When Jim indicated the need for a long narrow painting I immediately envisioned this same area, different angle and at deep dusk; this painting too flowed from the paint brush creating itself as it carved out space and shape on the canvas. They hang in my studio right now curing out waiting to be shipped from Texas to Florida. I am going to miss this little piece of heaven in my studio. When I am stressed right now, I stand or sit back in my chair by the computer and lose myself in this swamp...a peace fills the soul. I am hoping Jim and his wife find this unusual calm when they unwrap their palms and hang them. 

Contact me if you have a dream picture out there floating in your head! Let me bring it to life.
