Early Evening Sail
By A Texas Artist Laurie Pace

This sailboat painting was a love for my husband because we love to sail. He found an old picture from our albums and decided I needed to paint another sailboat. Sorry this one is not palette knife..but it is brush and delicately done.

Perfect gift for someone for Christmas at a perfectly affordable price.

The Quiet Inside the Storm

My mom spoke this week about everyone needing a place where they 'escape' and feel protected and comforted.

We went back and forth discussing if you needed a specific place or if you could develop that same sense of comfort and 'escape' in that moment anywhere by just being.

Just Being.

It is not as hard as you might think it is.
Listen to your heart.
Be Still.
