The Painted Ponies Gathering One
32 x 48 inches Oil on Canvas.
Available Paintings by Laurie Pace 

I really sweated and work through this one. Totally different palette, out of the box AND the studio for me.  I would think I had it complete, take images and look at them in reverse in Photoshop and race back into the studio, moving around the thick layers of paint, adjusting here and there and back up to photoshop... I must have been up and down the stairs 15 trips as this one came to it's finish.  I sent photos of it off to Steve at Mirada for first 'look' and it shall indeed be heading to Mirada Fine Art in Denver and will be available soon. If you find yourself in love...with the painting, please email ME or email STEVE.

If you declare with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you profess your faith and are saved. Romans 10:9-10

Abstract Painting, Contemporary Art, "Texture" by Carol Schiff, 16x20" Mixed Media

I was looking at my blogger statistics recently, and noticed that I will be celebrating my 7th year of writing this blog in two weeks!  How did that happen?

To celebrate, I thought I would re-post my most popular painting.  I was shocked to see that two of my works had many, many, more views than the others.  In fact, they had two or three times the amount of views than the 3rd place painting.  They are two completely different pieces of work and even weirder...neither have sold!

I suppose, I should wait for two weeks, but I have to act while I still like the idea, so here is the 2nd most popular  post:

This is a view of a charming cottage and garden I found on a walk through Hyde Park in London.  The cottage was actually some type of park office and the grounds were incredible.

And here is the big winner..............................

If you would like to read the original post, with a description of how this was painted, you will find it here:

Although I had painted a few small abstract type items, I consider this to be my first REAL abstract.  With 1138 views, it far out paced every other post!

So there is a big difference in the two paintings.  The only thing they have in common is that I painted them both and neither sold!  :)  Maybe, with time, this will become my MOST POPULAR POST!

We painted flowers til the cows came home in the Texas Hill Country this week! Tomorrow is the last day of my four day painting/marketing workshop for The Good Art Company school, and I'm so sad to say goodbye to these talented gals from Michigan, San Diego, Louisiana, and across Texas. We painted pink lilies, white hydrangeas, irises and sunflowers this week, and started each morning with fresh kolaches and cheese danish from the local bakery. Visit my art blog today to see pictures from our adventure this week, as well as a photo of a rare blue cow, spotted just outside the classroom. Clearly he had been subsisting on a diet of bluebonnets for quite some time!

 We painted sunflowers til the cows came home today!

"Spring in Colorado, Shooting Stars" by Karla Nolan

Finally!  It has been forever since I have blogged, due to neck and arm problems, along with failing computer issues.  So, back to it, already!  These are my sweet shooting stars that will bloom shortly in our back yard.  I first saw these magnificent wildflowers hiking in the foothills and mountains many years ago and at that time I had no idea that you could purchase them at a nursery or garden store.  Well, I'm glad I discovered this, as they will cheer up any day here in northern Colorado.  Happy Spring!

Original oil painting Spring in Paris by Karen Tarlton

Inspired from my very first trip to Paris, I fell in love with everything about it. The city is one of the most romantic in the world.  And the food and wine are fabulous.  So you can tell I have Spring Fever, oui?
