Progress on Been There, Contemporary Horse Paintings by Texas Artist Laurie Pace

Progress Been There
  ©+Laurie Pace       Graphics One Design 2014

 Size:30 x 40  Oil on Canvas.

The patterns have begun to establish themselves on the surface. The strength in the horses neck is evident by the color choice. I am an artist that goes after 'contemporary horse paintings' with brilliant colors. 

I had hoped to finish to post but taking this composition slowly as it develops and not rushing the energy. I want the painting to evolve naturally.  You can see the rough music through the layers of oil paints as I progress into the next layers of paint. Still caught up in the 'been there' as I think more of the sun and moon and the daily journey and how our lives are totally situated around this natural happening of day into night repeated to what seems infinite or until the sun bursts and flares out leaving the earth cold and dead. 

What do people gain from all their labors
    at which they toil under the sun?
Generations come and generations go,
    but the earth remains forever.
The sun rises and the sun sets,
    and hurries back to where it rises.
The wind blows to the south
    and turns to the north;
round and round it goes,

    ever returning on its course.
Ecclesiastes 1:3-6
