At the Ocean Beach painting by Texas Artist Laurie Pace

At the Ocean 
  ©+Laurie Pace       Graphics One Design 2014

 Size:24 x 36  Oil on Canvas.  SOLD

The little one on the beach was painted several years ago. I like the full sunlight of this painting of child on the beach.  I love the simplicity of the waves and the pure softness of the sand.

Blessed are those who keep his statutes
    and seek him with all their heart  Psalm 119:2

Jimmy Longacre_subjective realist landscape paintings_AUSTIN TOWERS

Forgive the corny title.  I'm easily amused.  This is part of a series of experiments where I'm teaching myself to work with much thicker paint than my comfort zone dictates.  It's a lot of fun to cut the ties with how I'm used to working and having to deal with what's happening with the paint.  It's so easy to get trapped repeating what has worked in the past, and just trying to go with that. Don't get me wrong, there's a place for developing what you know, especially when galleries are expecting you to deliver dependable, recognizable work.  But, there's also a time for doing what feeds our creative impulse to explore.  For that we have to go outside our comfort zone.

Cut Away Over the Moon, Palette Knife Guitar Painting by Texas Artist Laurie Pace

Cut Away Over the Moon by ©Laurie Pace 2014

Cut Away Over the Moon
  ©+Laurie Pace       Graphics One Design 2014

 Size:24 x 36  Oil on Canvas.

This contemporary abstract painting is of my Taylor guitar. It is one of the loves of my life.  Custom made for me to play, small and easy to manage if we travel... and my arms never tire of stroking and holding her.

She is the inspiration of this painting. She has a 'cut away' at the top which for those of you that do not play guitar, it allows me to finger further on the neck of the guitar.   The "over the moon" part of the title is from the layers of music on the original surface.   

This palette knife Guitar painting was NOT as easy thing yesterday. I was on my feet over five hours as it evolved several directions. I painted it more like my old pear paintings of days almost ten years ago... and tried to keep the freshness of thick paint like my guitars of years ago.  Maybe it is time for more music in my life. 

Lord, our Lord, how majestic is your name in all the earth! Psalm 8:9

The main goal of this painting was to have the colors vibrate against each other just as in a Monet painting but with a modern twist.  This was accomplished by using the lime green against the pinks, reds, purples, oranges and whites.  Overall wanted the painting to be bright and cheerful.

Oyster Shell by Contemporary Coastal Artist Kristine Kainer

Oil on Canvas
Purchase Information

As many of you know, I love to eat shellfish, then take the shells home in a doggy bag.  Recently, I was visiting my father in Florida and had the opportunity to dine on the freshest shellfish daily.  Unfortunately, bringing the shells back to his house, then lugging them home on the plane was not an option.  Thank goodness I had my handy dandy iPhone camera at the ready!  Here's to my model, somewhere in Florida.... You will always be remembered!

Day 3, Paris Art Trek:
Plein Air Painting and Photography Workshop 
with Niki Gulley and Scott Williams

On the third day of our Paris Art Trek, we visited Notre-Dame Cathedral it all of its Gothic Splendor. Fortified by a delicious lunch of crepes, salads and quiches, the painters went back to replicate this view of the church's rose window across the Seine while the rest of our photographers and tourists visited Saninte-Chapelle, the Latin Quarter and St. Germaine.

That night we gathered for you guessed it…more epicurean experiences! Beef Bourguignon, Strawberry cheesecake gelato, Kir Royals and profiteroles with chocolate sauce were just a few of the highlights.
