Vermont Original Scenic Landscape Oil Painting by Laurie Rohner.

Vermont Original Scenic Landscape Oil Painting by Laurie Rohner.
A realistic Vermont landscape original oil painting is titled Pastures below Mt Mansfield. I painted this detailed scenic landscape on a 10″ x 10″ stretched canvas.

A summer scene of picturesque Vermont depicting Mount Mansfield in the distance and a wonderful Vermont farmhouse and barn in the foreground. I painted this pastoral landscape with detailed realism, the richness of the pasture in direct contrast to the image of the mountain peak in the distance. My use of color draws the viewer into the painting where you discover the quaint farmhouse and the barn on the ridge.

Color palette: blue, light leaf green, rich deep green, golden yellows, barn red, soft teal green, flaxen yellow.

The painting is signed and dated on the reverse and arrives Unframed. Ready to hang!

The painting measures 10 X 10 inches on wrapped canvas (3/4″ deep) with staples on the back. The painting has a beautiful color and a great finish from high quality oil paints.

The staple-free sides of the canvas are painted. The painting continues around to the sides – framing is not required.

Everything, Everyone wants the same thing.

“Everything you take for granted is a blessing. Everything you fear is a friend in disguise. Everything you want is a part of you. Everything you hate you hate about yourself. Everything you own does not define you. Everything you feel is the only Truth there is to know.

 

 

Everything you wish for is already on its way to you. Everything you think creates your life. Everything you seek for you will find. Everything you resist will stick around. Everything you let go of stays if it’s supposed to. Everything you need is right where you are.

 

 

Every time you bless another you bless yourself. Every time you blame another you lose your power. Every time you think you can, you can. Every time you fall you must get up and try again. Every time you cry you’re one tear closer to joy. Every time you ask for forgiveness, all you have to do is forgive yourself.

 

 

Everyone you see is your reflection. Everyone you know mirrors you. Everyone wants to be happy. Everyone wants to live in joy. Everyone seeks a higher purpose. Everyone breathes the same breath. Everyone needs love to survive. Everyone has a purpose to fulfill.

 

 

Everyone’s the same as everyone else. We just get caught up in labels, names, skin color and religion. Everyone’s the same as everyone else. No one wants to feel the pain. Everyone’s the same as everyone else. Everyone is dying for love to remain.”

Holding back? Let your guard down and love.

“If you are waiting for anything in order to live and love without holding back, then you suffer. Every moment is the most important moment of your life. No future time is better than now to let down your guard and love.”

 

David Deida, is a best-selling author and teacher.

 

Etsy has changed the look of the shops and I love it. This is a fabulous original watercolor available for you today. I noticed my shop had plunged in views and business let’s say sank in the shop. Now it is back and running even stronger. I should have remembered how much I love this community and stopped thinking for some reason it was against (just) me. Things can look very negative when you put your guard up and stop believing in your business and primarily you. I am thrilled with my shop again. I am adding and updating many of my nature inspired custom work with some of the items seeing lower prices. It is fabulous to feel good energy in my shop and stopped the suffering.

What are you not seeing in your life? What have you put guards up for and stopped loving? Can you see the love flowing back into your life?

When you’re happy for no reason, you bring happiness.

“When you’re happy for no reason, you bring happiness to your outer experiences rather than trying to extract happiness from them. You don’t need to manipulate the world around you to try to make yourself happy. You live from happiness, rather than for happiness.”

Marci Shimoff, is a motivational speaker and author. This quote comes from her book Happy For No Reason.

Image from photoity.com

Animals are best at showing us being happy for no reason. It is obvious this polar bear is very content and happy. You can see the connection that happiness is making with the woman.

Image from http://favimages.com/image/168868/

Again happy face, the connection is in the being and sharing of each other lives. Happy and being happy connects human beings on the soul level of all life.

This is a favorite image.

But there are times when no humans are necessary. Animals always know that connection and live from a happy place no matter what their circumstances. Lessons fellow humans can learn.

Self-Esteem for sale
Self-Esteem for sale (Photo credit: fran6co)

“We live in an unlimited Universe and are constantly discovering new information about it. There are no shortages in the Universe, the only shortage is our mental ability to comprehend how truly abundant we really are. Lack of abundance of anything in your life is fundamentally an issue of low self-esteem. If you are missing anything from your life, ask yourself: what false belief am I holding on to about myself that is preventing my desire from manifesting in my life? Anything you’ve ever desired already exists; the key is to live in high self-esteem and believe you are worthy of receiving it.”

– Jackson Kiddard, author & polymath.

What else can be said either you believe this quote or you don’t.

Today I read another great article about being a multimillionaire. The author broke it down to 7 rules which you can read here. It was Rule #2 that struck me, it states get rid of poverty thinking. Why do we persistently sabotage our self with demeaning thoughts. I throughout this “recession” have had one nagging thought, where did all the money go? It is still there and growing but the media people and governments keep telling us we are in short supply. I simply and emphatically say “no”. This is not true. It is why I like to promote other artists talents I like because I have never held to the theory if you tell about them then you might lose. There is plenty for all. Bank on it.

Now I need to work on all the other rules. Well do you believe in the Universe or ?
