Finding peace was the mission in this 'repaint'.  I took a quiet horse painting and began the added layers of paint.  This particular piece had mixed media beneath with acrylics and now I have introduced oils over the top of the painting. Using the pulled paint method, the colors pulled together two visible horses in the painting. I decided to keep it simple and not pull so many bright colors into it. Not everyone loves a rainbow painting.  The mission in the studio is to enjoy my journey working with my oils and my horse paintings, or longhorn paintings or florals. 

It is often a surprise to discover images in the surface. No it is not always horses... it can be anything. That is why I refer to it as the Spirit of the Paint.  

Right now in the world there is quite a bit of violence and upheaval. That is accompanied by Ebola and the Enterovirus.  Through this all it is important to remain at peace and not sucked down the media dark hole.  We cannot dwell on the negative things in the world, but we can hold a vision of peace and pray for resolution to the situations. Visualize the world at peace... held by God's love.  How you view the world is not much different than me viewing my canvas with paint on it.  We all have a choice on how to see things and react to them.  

"May the God of steadfastness and encouragement grant you to live in harmony with one another, in accordance with Christ Jesus." Romans 15:5

Peace be with you... Laurie
