Three Grazing Summer Horse Paintings by Texas Artist Laurie Pace, Venetian Plaster Mixed Media

Summer time and it is the month of celebrating our freedom here in the USA, but again daily the celebration that we are together as a family, loving, laughing and making memories with our children and grandchildren.  The move back to the DFW area has really been a journey with mixed emotions, but as I post this painting, I realize how often we all look to the greener grass and want to cross the road. Sometimes we do cross and we find the grass to be bittersweet and not all it looked to be.   God has plans for each of us, but our headstrong human trait of trying to control everything rears its demands constantly. 

When you are working on a painting, you have to find the spirit of that canvas and that paint as it works its way into the layers of color that make it finally what it becomes.  This summer I have opened my heart and art to a different level experimenting with different things.
This is Venetian plaster prep on the canvas and then many layers of both acrylics and liquid acrylics.

I woke up in the morning with excitement to hit the studio and finish it. It is at the point I let it go for a few days and watch it...and time to begin another contemporary horse painting.
