Size:20 x 30 Oil on Canvas SOLD.
Available Paintings by Laurie Pace
One of the horse rescues I support in South Dakota often shares photos with me and this was one of the horses she allowed me to paint. Obviously it is not the typical abstract, but more realism creeping through. It sold right away as I finished the painting.
There are many styles of painting and it is always a stretch to try something totally opposite from the norm. I am beginning to think more like a kid the older I get. What if I just want to drop it all and do something unexpected? It might actually be fun. Seems like Terry and I get stuck in a rut and we have forgotten how to have a 'blast'.
I know I just finished a painting that I will be posting this weekend entitled "On the Lamb". I was totally out of the box on this one. Stacey was over and just watched commenting on the different color palette and the movement of the paint. Lady L was in the studio and she was wanting to help so bad. She kept handing me random tubes of oil paints...'put this color in next Oma'. And I did.
I remember as a teenager I would think "Will Terry call tonight? Will Dad make me get off the phone in ten minute?" Yes, we had a time limit on phone calls. "Will Terry answer the note I sent him in fifth period? Did he see I told him to call me tonight?" Then I waited in anxious anticipation. Now days the anticipation centers around deadlines and job situations. The fun seems gone. So while there is no desire to elephant trekking in Nepal, there is a desire to trek across Canada and see the land and meet more of the people. With it the desire to takes tons of photos... why? Because before the horses I use to paint people. Can I still do it? I have no idea, but embarking into the unknown and adapting day by day is still a doable for us.
Be Watching for "ON THE LAMB" coming soon.
Praise the Lord, my soul.
Lord my God, you are very great;
you are clothed with splendor and majesty. Psalm 104:1
