Losing the Race? Contemporary Abstract Horse Paintings by Laurie Pace

18 x 27 inches The Race is On    Sold


“There is no dishonor in losing the race. There is only dishonor in not racing because you are afraid to lose.” ― Garth Stein, The Art of Racing in the Rain

The painting comes from early 2010.  Takes me back in time because Terry had pneumonia severely and I was total caretaker for him, while taking care of the house, our foster daughter and painting full time.  I was just coming off of eBay with contracts with galleries.  I was not sure I wanted to share this one today but I really really liked the movement and the colors. Sometimes it happens and you just stare at it. Not good or bad... just where did it come from running through your mind.

Following the quote... there are often paintings that do not make the grade, or feel right to me. Sometimes they are cleaned off the canvas and another painting is begun on top of it, or sometimes the canvas is shredded in the trash.   I cannot stop painting... I have to follow my passion and continue to create.  

I encourage you never to give up. If you are not living life as you need to, then you are not alive.

Anyone who loves their life will lose it, while anyone who hates their life in this world will keep it for eternal life. John 12:25

Hi, my name is Víctor and i am a professional piano composer. I composed today a 20th century piano style piece (is my first theme in this style) and a friend of mine told me that reminded her horses, so i decided to look for a modern painting to place it like image on my youtbe video and i like yours Race is on, is great, very intense and expressive!. I even decided to title my theme "The race is on" for this reason. This is the link, i hope you like it, i wrote your name in the credits and place this link but if you are not agree that i used your painting i can delete the video and reupload it with another image. Regards! Victor.
