Visit my blog below to see the new painting I am beginning this week...
it is entitled Winter Solstice, inspired by the colors outside the windows in my studio.





Mirada Gallery sold one of my larger pieces last week, Desert Sun.     I was so excited to learn more about the new owner as I did a collector book for her of this painting. She is a gifted poet and I included some of her poetry in her book on the painting. This is the third painting this year they have sold of my work at Mirada. It stayed here in the states. The first one lives in Canada and the second one flew to Australia.  I cannot thank Gallery Manager Steve enough for his constant vigilance and work with me for joint marketing and providing what collectors want for their investment.  It helps with the wonderful recognition and representation of American Art Collector and Western Art Collector.   With the new agreement with Contemporary Fine Art International, there will be new things with Southwest Art.

Thinking ahead to the Thanksgiving celebration next week, I remembered back to those previous dinners that I cooked, served, ate quickly, and cleaned up.  This is how I felt.  It is probably strange...even for me but I had the best fun sketching it out and painting it.

I became a pear person this past weekend. I use to be known as the pear lady as I painted pears almost as much as I painted horses... but we had some new pears from the store and during the rainstorms there was not much to do but paint by candle light and I did... a pear and an apple.

Through the Fall Foliage Equine Art Painted Pony Pull Horizon Horses Oil Painting by Texas Contemporary Artist Laurie Pace

'Through the Fall Foliage'
24 x 36  Oil on Canvas

A Rare Treat... one of my horizon Painted Pony Pulls.
I have limited the number I paint every year to keep them more collectible.
Other artists attempt to imitate the approach,  but if you ever seen one of mine in  person you realize
there is no comparison in the technique and the paints. 
This is a developed style that I have worked on since 2006.
Read more about it on my website, the History of the Painted Pony.

The first piece I did for this couple was this painting:



After we were working along and I was going to layer more reds on top of this;  I told her I could not as this painting had a very definite personality in the turquoise and accent reds.  I felt we had to begin again.  So I did this week and finished the painting above in red that they absolutely love. SO this painting entitled "the Dance" is available.  Just email me with an offer; it is 30 x 30 and very thick paint with about 12 layers in some places.  Laurie  Tell me in the email you are interested in The Dance and I can send close up pictures.

Sketches Preparation is Important in Painting and in life by Texas Artist Laurie Justus Pace

Sketches




Preparing for a painting always requires sketches...

Contact me for commission work. Laurie
   © Laurie Justus Pace     Graphics One Design 2010




Preparation is an important thing in life for almost everything. Spur of the moment is usually more like life is, but if you are preparing all along and have a good foundation, you are doing the needed prep work.

The grass Terry and I planted is doing fabulously.  We dipped each square of grass in a big tub of fertilizer water of Miracle Grow before we placed it on the ground.  My back hurt for over a week as we laid 150 grass squares.  But this preparation has paid off to solid sod that looks as good as it feels.  The dog loves it. The snakes love it... we all love it. Good preparation.

Preparation before we cook is important. We made his mother's meat loaf recipe again last night. Of course it always leaves me overfull...but it is good.  We had to prepare ahead by having all the needed ingredients.   Things just go together better when you don't have to substitute things in a recipe. 

I could list all day long things it is better to be prepared for... but the most important is when you come to God in prayer.  He likes it best that way and if your mind is clear of clutter and the "I wants and I needs", you can really listen to Him speaking to your heart. Our journey in life is our preparation for the journey into the here after.  Are you prepared?

Usually when I am down I take that time to go right back up. (Ben says that all the time..." you can get glad just like you got sad. (or mad)."  You do that by counting your blessings.  Aunt Dorothy (Ben's sister) use to say if she could not sleep at night she would start with the letter A and say a prayer and bless every person she knew with a name that started with A. Then she would move to B and through the alphabet.  She never made it through with out falling asleep. She said often she would start at M and go forward just to cover new territory blessing her friends and family.


This might be a good exercise to actually sit down and do to see how many folks you remember that are blessings in your life and take the time to pray for them and bless them back. 

I always compare it to tapestries and the beautiful woven strands of color.  Each person is a thread in your tapestry of your life and as they come into your journey they weave in the special color they are blessed with.   Each thread/person unique in their beauty and gifts.  All different personalities, talents and skills.  They bless our lives while they walk with us.

So who are the people in your tapestry of lifeSome are close to you and always have been. Others are part of your journey for a short time.  Today is a good day to give thanks for all the people who have touched your life in some way.  Pray for them and surround them with your love.  Bless them and give thanks to God for the beauty they bring to you. This is your tapestry of love.

This painting was completed over weeks and literally weeks with much layering.  Last night I finished the Collector Book that goes with it. It is a hardback book with pictures from the start to the finish of the painting as it is created.  Most collectors love the books as much as their paintings!

I guess we are all collectors in some way or another.  Some folks collect coins; some collect books; some collect stamps.... and we could list things forever.  What makes collecting so important?  What do we seem to value in collecting things? 

I am thankful for people who collect art. With out those collectors I would be doing something else. Terry says having your 'stuff' around you is a comforting thing.  As we age we begin to learn what is important to keep and what means the most to have around us.


I collect books and some art pieces from fellow artists.  I use to collect cups and saucers, but realized about three years ago there was no reason to be doing it any more.  Terry and I have downsized quite a bit and those collections have not place in our household anymore.

A good friend was trying to show off her new KINDLE. I do not think I could go there.  Maybe a few books on one, but to give away all the collections of books I have... I don't think so. There is something special about holding a book and turning the pages.   I especially feel that way about my bible... all of my bibles. There is one here next to me, one in the kitchen and one in the bedroom.  There are more...but those are the main ones.  

True comfort for me comes in reading His word.  We are collectors of His Word.  We are receivers of His Grace and Abundance.  His Comfort surrounds and uplifts our family.
