Grey Stallion Contemporary Abstract horse Painting with Laurie Pace

Grey Stallion   6 x 9 inches Oil on Panel

More leftover paint from my Neither Black or White Painting... but I had more orange left than blues... I love pulling these colors into this unique contemporary horse painting. It is abstract and it is one of my signature Painted Pony Pulls.

Discovery.  Discovery is always a joy when I paint one of these. You never know where you are going. The colors create the textured surface where the horses appear. I feel like a child at play when I am working on one of these. Every stroke of the palette knife slicing through color or layering color on top of prior layers is like joy and excitement as I leave my eyes open to finding the horses. New discoveries and new opportunities with each painting.   Painting is by far a  wonderful way to start the day, to fill the day or to end the day. The downer part are all the blogging and the computer work. 

Painting is a powerful way to live.. with joy and anticipation each day. I literally look forward to what I can discover every day. Child's play...God's gift...energy, art, color, and spirit.  I get to share it with you.

May you be open to the discovery of joy today.
