Been There, Contemporary Horse Paintings by Texas Artist Laurie Pace

 Size: 30 x 40  Oil on Canvas.

I am constantly looking for neat things to mount as the foundation of my contemporary horse paintings. I came across a CW book of older music and chose the Clint Black song "Been There".   I shredded it and glazed it onto the canvas.

"did you ever wake up in the middle of the night"
"did you ever wake up in the middle of the day"
"did you ever wake up in the middle of a dream"

Those were the lines that struck me as I worked... and as you can see there are spheres in the painting... When you think of how "rote" our days have become... Work, Drink, Eat and Sleep... and do it again the next day. Both Parents working, children in day care.... everyone forgetting how to live... how to be alive.  We have all BEEN THERE.

So the painting has a strong horse prancing with the sun and moon revolving... like they have 'been there' forever each day.  
Watch for the finished painting tomorrow.

The unfolding of your words gives light; it gives understanding to the simple.
Psalm 119:130 NIV
