Always on the Run . Transitions . Love those colors .  Fast Horses in a Painting 

Transitions in life...wow. Change is by the minute and transitions occur in a blink of an eye or over a longer period of time. Depends on the Change and what is needed.   Sometimes with painting a transition is needed but normally I am working wet on wet.  This painting was not. It had a totally different identity last fall when it was painted. I had not really finished the painting and was scrambling to get things together for a show in Houston. 

I was working on Changing of Seasons and just sent it as it was because I was out of time. Davis and CO sent it back last week and I attacked it today for not just a transition but a full facelift and I love it!  Here is the original. My husband call them my heart horses with the heart chests. 

I prayed a bunch while working and reworking the surface. I bit of sanding and removal of thick pockets of paint.. and the carving began on it. 

 

So the moral of this painting is NEVER GIVE UP.  We have to continue growing and changing in life.  So essential and so important. Acknowledge God as our creator and know he has plans for all of us.

Blessings, Laurie
