If everyone did exactly what they want to do?

Hypothetically, people worry about everyone being selfishly oriented. “If everyone did exactly what they want to do, what kind of world would this be?” And we say, a really, really good one. Because if everyone did what they wanted to do, everyone would feel free. And if you feel free, you feel empowered. And every negative emotion that exists—hear this—every negative emotion that exists is because there is some sense of loss of freedom somewhere in there.

—Abraham

Original watercolor painting by Laurie Rohner
Watercolor Pink Foxglove Botanical Flower Original Nature Art Garden Painting

Original large watercolor, pink foxglove is a detailed garden painting and an original botanical flower nature art hand painted by Laurie Rohner. Botanical nature art at its best.

Foxglove -digitalis – are an interesting flower to paint because they have many different blooms. I chose to show each one uniquely painted with detail depth as in nature. Imagine this flower surrounded by dozens of these botanical garden flower stems, it is nature giving us a smile.

I paint using a process called glazing. It is layering pigments down on top of each other building depth of pigment and emotion through color. The process is labor and time intensive. This painting took approximately 56hrs to complete. There are about 10 layers of pigment on this painting.
