Then Came Three

 Size: 8 x 10  Oil on Canvas. SOLD
Available Paintings by Laurie Pace 

Stop by my website to see available paintings.  I cannot believe this is the end of June... and tomorrow is July.  I count through the summer months in anticipation of Fall, often trying to hurry time.  Does not make sense!  

July is ahead with many family activities and joyful gatherings... birthdays, the Fourth of July and lazy summer evenings.  My twinkle light surround the back porch area... the mosquito plants surround the porch and the little egg filled with citronella is doing its job. Memories in the making on these hot summer days and lazy evenings.  Terry has our backyard filled with roses, flowers and our garden. Our morning hours are spent from about 6-7 in the garden and hand watering the trees and plants in the beds around the house. They have predicted a rainy July and I would embrace it readily.  

Give thanks to the Lord, for he is good;
    his love endures forever. Psalm 107:1

On The Lamb, Horse Painting by Texas Artist Laurie Pace

On The Lamb

Here is the final on this painting. You can see I pulled in some soft oranges in the sky  contrasting with the blues. The reds are strong in the center of the painting contrasting the next layer of green sliding across in the lower middle area and the bottom is a combo of white, grey red and blue. It is a strong piece with very thick layers of paint.  Email Kim at Robert Kelly if you are interested in this painting.

Here are some close up images below.




May your weekend be filled with FUN... laughter and new memories.  

Praise the Lord.
Give thanks to the Lord, for he is good;
    his love endures forever. Psalm 106:1

Memorial portrait of Cass by artist Sue Linton


Memorial portrait of Cass
 30 x 40cms
 Oil on gallery wrap canvas

‘Hi Sue, just wanted to let you know I received Cass yesterday.

I am very pleased, it is so lifelike and like him. You certainly are gifted.’
( A week later I asked how the Mother’s day portrait unveiling went )
‘It went very well thanks Sue,

Mum loves the portrait.

There were lots of tears, but we all agree its a great likeness. ‘

—Leslee

Leslee contacted me when her mother's horse  Cass  died unexpectedly and was found in the paddock one morning. He was 23 and still going strong. He is much missed.
I saw him once at a dressage event and he looked like a lovely natured boy.
  She decided a portrait of him would be a great way to celebrate his life and remember him and we organised a surprise portrait for mother's Day.

 Portraits created for clients internationally. 
 Satisfaction guaranteed - Your portrait will look like your horse but be more alive , 3D and lifelike than the photo!

2 weeks, 2 shows, 5 paintings, 1 thunderstorm

The last two weekends were horse show weekends for me, two days at Reins of Life in South Bend, IN and three days at the Fox River Valley Pony Club horse trials in Barrington Hills, IL. First off, the most important thing from the artistic point of view–I completed five new Aquabord™ paintings while I was at these events tending my vendor booth, so I’m here to show them off! All are available for purchase, $35 each plus shipping. Details on my website.


"Sparring”–Two bachelor stallions from my mustang trip.
“Pursuit”–Two more bachelor stallions. Go, boys!

“Scope”–eponymous scopey bay from last year’s FRVPC show.


“Effortless”–Another bay, this one from Fox Valley Saddle Association mini event.

“Elegance”–Classy palomino from last year’s FRVPC show.   

It wouldn’t be a benefit horse show at Reins of Life therapeutic riding center without some mud, if one were to go by my last three years' experience. But who would have thought, from this gorgeous vantage point?

Reins of Life’s pristine dressage ring. 
Until you looked here–

Except for the puddle at A
 But no matter, Reins of Life had what I love to see–very happy riders! A smile says it all.


 And one talented little rider may be going horse shopping soon.

Cutest kid on the cutest pony will soon be outgrowing her steed from the looks of her legs!

Fox River Valley Pony Club had been dodging rain successfully for the entire week, so setup in the field was a breeze. Nothing worse than trying to set up or tear down your booth in the rain. Here’s what it looked like in the dressage warmup area the first morning (all that green and one would think this was Ireland, not northern Illinois).
Morning weather tease
Warmup area gets crowded when you have 250 horses entered.
“Green as grass”
Rain. Wind. Thunder. Lightning. My booth, behind the white truck. It survived unscathed.

Riders who were out on the cross-country course had to hurry back to shelter as quickly as possible. A few of them ended up in the indoor arena, which had already been set up for a big dinner party that night. Normally horses in an arena are an expected sight, but the tables and chairs added an air of oddity to it.
Horses in the dining area!
Shades of red seemed to be popular eventer colors this year. A lot of hot pink among them.
Pretty in pink, two more to come.
Pink was nice, but some preferred orange!
The last day, I took some time to go over to the grass course where the upper level stadium jumping was held. I got some great photos, and also some quite unexpected ones. You never wish a bad round on anyone, but when it happens it can make for some pretty dramatic stuff. Here’s the sequence, starting with a successful effort–
Here’s what it’s supposed to look like.
Here’s what happened to another pair:
Rider can see trouble coming…



Uh oh…






And don’t forget to let go of the reins…

 Both horse and rider walked off the field and didn’t look any worse for wear, just disappointed that they had been eliminated. As Chicago Cubs fans like to say, just wait till next year!

"Tall, Dark and Handsome" Pencil Drawing and Print by Karen Baker Thumm



This black beauty was relaxing in his horse trailer at a draft horse show I attended many years ago. He was all polished up and trimmed for his turn in the ring to strut his stuff. Wouldn't he have been a sight pulling a carriage or cart in a fancy harness?

The original drawing of this handsome Percheron draft horse has been sold, but you can still order a print to grace the walls of your home on my website, Karen Thumm Equine Art .

You are also welcome to visit my blog, Drawing On LIfe; The Art of Karen Baker Thumm to see what's happening in the studio and get a peek at new paintings and drawings.
