Rocky Mountain Longhorn . The Eyes of Texas are Upon You . The colors of the earth . Laurie Pace . Longhorn Paintings

It was a losing battle for me99% of my longhorn painting are commissions for UT fans here in Texas. I do not budge on those. One went to Dutch Art and was sold to someone I knew wanting one.  I have never EVER EVER sent them out of the state or had them in any other gallery. Only that one, in a Dallas Gallery.

Steve Sonnen at Mirada Fine Art has a plan. He has a show. It is the best of the west in Colorado. He has my horses. He has my wolves. He does not have a longhorn. I have avoided the subject.  Well with the show involving four artists, and I am honored to be one of them, he wants a longhorn.  I started with the two longhorns that became wolves. He did not want just a longhorn painting...NO SIREEE... He wanted one of my moon faced longhorns with the twenty million layers of paint on it. He wanted earth colors. So here I am back at the sketchbook and ready to roll. The show is only a month away.  And the fun begins. 

This one has to have attitude. It is really hard to take the longhorn OUT of Texas.  But in my research I did find the Rocky Mountain Longhorn Ranch that has Texas Longhorns. So no wonder the title of this longhorn is Rocky Mountain Longhorn.  That is a given. I will be shipping the horses that were in the El Paso Museum show, "Rocky Mountain Sunrise" to Steve for this show as well.  It is a Rocky's theme.  

Time to plan a trip to the Rockies!
