One Heart One Way
Contemporary Heart Art by Laurie Justus Pace

American Heart Association Donation for Fund Raising to Research on Heart Disease.

Well, Uncle John stayed busy in the studio through Tuesday. Yesterday I was at the doctor with my mom preparing for her cataract surgery. I am actually getting to paint again after a full week off! BUSY BUSY NOW!

Watch for tomorrow a new posting IF I can get to my easel. Uncle John is painting the walls in the studio area and Terry and I had to move the easels out, except for the 8 x 4 ft skyline of Dallas I am working on!

SLOW progress.

I am excited to share that the first posted heart is available on a t-shirt and will post the site as soon as I get it. It is for the American Heart Association for a fundraiser for a team up in Virginia I believe. After the regional or state group saw it, they just wrote and ask me to donate or do something for their fundraiser the 9th of May...hummm, that means do it NOW... so pray for me as I take this cause on.

My father, that has Alzheimers, also had bypass surgery, and later a pacemaker and a defib unit. The cause is close to my heart...pardon the pun.

God Bless,

Baby Beagle DOG ART Oil Painting

Baby Beagle is an Oil on W/C paper and is 6 x 6 inches.

Terry asked why I was not painting our dogs... I need to take some pictures..they are all black and grey curly fur and you really can't see much. There eyes have a sparkle and their overall cut is distinctive... have to see what I can sketch out. Meanwhile I visited and pulled about three photos off that are up posted for artists to use... this little guy was one of them.

Dogs ... they are part of my wonders of the heart!

Mother HeART

Mother Heart
Contemporary Heart Art Painting by Laurie Justus Pace

9 x 12 x 2 inches Acrylic on Canvas

Contact me about commissions of the heART. Laurie

"Then God blessed them, and God said to them, "Be fruitful and multiply" (Gen 1.28)

This heARt wonder was based on the thought of Mother as a life giver. When I think of the earth and life in it's cycles...the green of spring is always the sign of birth as the world wakes from winter. Hence the gorgeous hues of green in the center of this giving. The exploding from the heart are the colors found in creation...Mothers are "creators" in the image of God. Mothers tend to wear the rose colored glasses always seeing the best in every child... in every situation.

This heArt is sold, but watch for more in this Wonders of the heART series. It will not all be hearts but they will all be wonders.

The will of God will never lead you where the grace of God cannot keep you.


"Children, obey your parents in the Lord, for this is right.
"Honor your father and mother,'' which is the first commandment with promise: "that it may be well with you and you may live long on the earth.''
And you, fathers, do not provoke your children to wrath, but bring them up in the training and admonition of the Lord." (Eph 6.1-4)

Wonders of the Heart 2
Contemporary Heart Art Daily Painting by Laurie Justus Pace

12 x 12 inches of collaged layers of paper and color. Books of an old bible that was falling apart grace the background.. Ecclesiastes Chapter 11, Proverbs and Song of Solomon. Add in bits and pieces of other old books that I am dissecting and you have Wonders of the Heart 2~
Contact me to purchase and mention title of painting. Laurie

"Cast your bread upon the waters, for after many days you will find it again. " Ecclesiastes 11:1

Life involves both risk and opportunity when it comes to relationships and loving. Because there are no guarantees in life that there will be a tomorrow... we must live and love today. Life offers up love and the time to seize it is now...playing it safe may find it gone tomorrow.

Remember to show your love to that special person today.


"If clouds are full of water, they pour rain upon the earth. Whether a tree falls to the south or to the north, in the place it falls, there will it lie. Whoever watches the wind will not plant; whoever looks a the clouds will not reap. As you do not know the path of the wind or how the body if formed in a mother's womb, so you cannot understand the work of God, the Maker of all things." Ecclesiastes 11: 3-5

Caught in the glint of soft light dancing in her eyes
and the half smile breaking across her tender lips
is my heart.

Such is the fullness of my heart's content.
