A peak into the Studio! Painting in Progress. Laurie Pace Horse Paintings



  ©+Laurie Pace       Graphics One Design 2018

Compromise in Progress  
Cool Colors  Size: 20 x 20  Oil on Canvas.
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Been painting today.  This one is in cool colors as we have had cold nights and cold days the past week.  More rain and cold tomorrow too!  Getting ready for Black Friday and Cyber Monday and doing my best to have some new paintings ready... 

Will show the finished painting later next week. Hope this finds you preparing for the celebration of Thanksgiving.  I know we normally spend $100-125 a week on groceries and I was surprised to spend $274 this morning.  There are Pies involved among other things, like Rachel's Famous Sweet Potatoes, Grandmother's Cherry Pie, Grandmothers homemade Egg Noodles with lots of butter involved...oops and eggs, homemade cranberry relish, and a few other specials coming together. 

So for now, painting is taking up time as Mr Honey is taking Christmas down from the attic and checking all the lights before we even think about putting things up. 

John 14:2-4 "
My Father’s house has many rooms; if that were not so, would I have told you that I am going there to prepare a place for you? 
And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come back and take you to be with me that you also may be where I am. 
You know the way to the place where I am going.”

Three Remain   

Oil on Canvas.   Size: 16 x 20  Oil on Canvas.
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
This contemporary abstract horse painting is fresh and wet on the easel.  Been listening to Santana this morning. Then added in some CW with George Strait.   Painting is not complete without some Classical and it was Debussy. 

This was painted to be similar to a smaller painting created about three years ago.  Now in the sitting baking stage... I may touch up more as I watch over it. 

There are only  maybe three more weeks I can paint for the holiday gifts you may need.  Please reach out on my Website Contact form and let me get it going.  Contact me.

Boys on the Beach . Contemporary Dog Art by Texas Artist Laurie Justus Pace

Boys on the Beach Commission 24 x 48 inches  Oil on Canvas.
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Mid Afternoon and we just broke fifty degrees! Still raining.  This is incredible!  Fire in the fireplace, potato leek soup for lunch and apple cobbler made with crumbs on the top for dessert. A girl cannot want much more!

We survived yesterday without internet and television. The storms continued.  I was beginning to wonder about bedtime, but had a book ready to read, when suddenly it was all back.  Depends on your position in the world right now whether that was 'Deep State' interference or God's handiwork in lightning strikes! 

I have been knee deep playing catch up from yesterday but took a minute to stop by and post one of my favorite paintings. It was shipped to Sweden and created back in 2009.  I loved painting every single inch of this one. The inspiration was a beach photo of the client's dogs and it made it really fun! 

Christmas is upon us soon. If you want to have me paint a commission, now is the time to send me an email!  Contact me here.  I would love to do some flowers, cowboys, horses, children... whatever you might want to surprise someone with! 

“This is what the LORD Almighty says: ‘In a little while I will once more shake the heavens and the earth, the sea and the dry land. I will shake all nations, and what is desired by all nations will come, and I will fill this house with glory,’ says the LORD Almighty." Haggai 2:6-7

Yes he will! More rain in the forecast. There certainly have been an abundance of earthquakes and floods in the world, along with volcano eruptions and even a tsunami or two.  I feel our nation is under attack and much divided and fear there is no common ground left. As for me and my household, we live and follow our Heavenly Father.  No matter what is ahead, he walks before us. He will fill all that believe with his glory.

Unfailing Love . Sunflowers . Laurie Pace, Texas Contemporary Artist




  ©+Laurie Pace       Graphics One Design 2018

 Size 24 x 36 . Sold  Oil on Canvas.
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Not sure what happened in northeast Texas today, but we broke a low and a high today since 1914.   What would normally be temps in the high seventies and low eighties with lows around 65, has been trumped for the next two days.   We have a high of 42 and it is hovering around 36-38 right now. With it is pouring rain that seems to have no end for the next 48 hours.  

That being said, ATT offices in the DFW area were hit by lightning and there is intermittent cable and absolutely no internet. So my time is limited today.

The painting above was from 14 years ago, but one of my personal favorites.  Trio of Sunflowers.  I am hoping to do more flower paintings in the next few weeks. Time is flying by and my attention is pulled to the websites I manage and to my family. 

Psalm 8:3-4 ."When I consider your heavens, the work of your fingers, the moon and the stars, which you have set in place, what is mankind that you are mindful of them, human beings that you care for them? "

Father-God never tires of us and mankind.  His unfailing love is shown over and over through his presence in our lives and the lives of our ancestors.

“The pessimist complains about the wind; the optimist expects it to change; the realist adjusts the sails.” William Arthur Ward

This was a small painting but so much fun and so full of color. This close up show the beauty of layering the paint on. Looking at it makes me want to paint today!! Maybe so!

Meanwhile… we are working in the kitchen again.  A new gas line for the new stove arriving mid month and a new microwave as well.  Terry has emptied Cabinets to cut through sheetrock in preparation of the plumber and electrician coming.

First becomes Last and then it Disappears . . . Flower Paintings by Texas Artist Laurie Pace



  ©+Laurie Pace       Graphics One Design 2018

First Flowers 24 x 24   Acrylic on Canvas.

“First they ignore you. Then they ridicule you. And then they attack you and want to burn you. And then they build monuments to you.”  Nicholas Klein

Way too much stress in the nation right now.  Are you left, or are you right? Are you a Republican? Are you a Democrat? Did he do it? Did she make it up? The Me Too movement?  Make America Better movement?   I struggle with the ME ME ME Generation that seems to widen the gap. The generations growing up with Social Media, losing their parents to cell phones, two working parents and children learning a different way of life than has ever been seen before. I struggle with the loss of God in this country, the loss of respect for others, the loss of respect for elders, the loss of respect for our country, our constitution and our rights.  Our Constitution has survived for a reason since 1776, a nation that is coming up to 250 years of existence. 

Will we lose it all?  Most civilizations are wiped out or taken over in world history. Will we be the next one to fall?  Over 30 advanced civilizations have collapsed before us. 

“But Jesus knew their thoughts, and said to them: “Every kingdom divided against itself is brought to desolation, and every city or house divided against itself will not stand.”  Matthew 12:25
