Bird in an apple tree surrounded with golden yellow apples is painted in watercolor on a special primed canvas panel for watercolor artwork. This original watercolor landscape is rich in greens yellows and soft blues. The bird is a simple brown bird, maybe a finch or sparrow, checking out the apples. Which one should I munch on. The apples are yellow red and green and make a great contrast against the green leaves. You see a hint of the sky. This painting is a realist Impressionist style painting.

What a question right? I work with a large spectrum of products, from fine art to prints, painted furniture to murals and more. I wanted to make it easier for me to add my smaller artwork. I looked into varied options and read a review about scanners. As he exclaimed reproducing images old school can not be beat. A good camera is necessary for larger work and of course 3D work, such as my painted furniture and murals. Let’s face it you are not going to slap a wall down on a scanner. So what is my goal?
I have refocused my work and want to produce smaller work. Not simpler or of lesser quality just smaller. Some in watercolor, some in oil and I want to add my work to my FineArtAmerica web site. A scanner made sense. So after researching the wide range of scanners I found an Epson V370 Photo. Now I am scanning my heart out. Love this scanner and the scan and stitch option fabulous. My images are clear and the colors are smack on.
Prints come in various sizes, buy the print framed with framing options galore or have it printed on canvas metal or wood.
Hope you stop by the print shop at Laurie Rohner Studio and find something fabulous for a gift or for your home. Need help choosing a frame? Happy to help.

I am a big believer in the field of energy always swirling around us, through us, and emitting from us. Thoughts actions and nature makes up part of the field. What is believed in our minds and hearts can manifest in our lives and world – good or bad. In effect bad things do not happen they are created by ourselves or others. There is no random cause and effect. So once I absorbed the thought, idea and wisdom of this new concept – for me that is – I started receiving different information about how to live differently.
The very first action anyone should do is clean up your thoughts. It is amazing how the people and your life changes. The toxic people tend to start to disappear. In their place comes interesting new wonderful people. I found nature even changed. Birds start to show up around the house which is something I love. Best of all is you feel lighter and better about you.
Second is clean your home. Get rid of all that stuff cluttering your life. It only holds you down. How can you fly under all that weight?
The next action I do is take a white candle and burn it. I visualize what I envision my life. From that flame I light a white sage smudge stick and walk around my house asking my guide and angels to guide me, protect me and to release all negative energies from my life. I love the smell of sage but opening up some windows helps to move the negative energy out. Be sure to work counterclockwise and smudge all windows doors and each level of your home. End your smudging with thanking your guide and angels, bless the energies a safe and wonderful journey and stub out the sage smudge stick.
Yesterday an email hit my inbox from Etsy. It was for a custom order. I opened the email and found this young women ranting with profanity about how I had sent her a twitter feed and to stop it. Now I admit I don’t know how things work but I do know that this was her issue – not mine. I replied back explaining I had nothing to do with her feed being filled up with my etsy posts – 5 to be exact – and she was not to contact shop owners through the custom order request. I said I was sorry this happened and wish her a better day. She then shot me another scathing email how she has reported me to twitter – hum don’t understand why – and that she is not the one responsible for this problem. I received 3 more irrational emails from this young lady. I did not reply because this would only feed her irrational rantings. Instead I sent an email to etsy about her with the emails she had sent and I blocked her from my twitter feed. Finally I sent her an email and told her what has happened thus ending her rants.
A few hours have passed, why did this person do this? I pondered that thought and believe that she was attracted in some way to my energy.
Do you think thoughts have energy?
Considering what is happening in my life and the way I was feeling about myself I can understand my part in this story. Though I did not see it in the beginning I have to thank this young women for showing me how my thinking had become negative and self doubting. I had opened the door and allowed that energy in – the door now shut I move on.
There is nothing wrong in protecting yourself against abusive people and reporting them when they act out. This is a consequence of their negative thinking, their thoughts or their mental energy. What is needed is taking responsibility for your part – unwanted yes – learning from this marvelous lesson and letting it go with light and love.
As an artist you are in contact with many different people and I try to accommodate my customers with respect. I give my full focus to the project at hand. Since I feel creative energy is infused into any creative work I am mindful of my thoughts while creating. How can you do your best work if you are at the mercy of negative people and negative thinking? I don’t see how you can. Look at the circumstances and then let the thoughts and people go. Then get back in the studio and create.

I have struggled with this question, stay with Etsy or leave? I say go. I have worked with square marketplace and with weebly for some time. I enjoy the marketplace at square. It is simple to use and to set up with options to embed your marketplace and product in your website. My website also has an online store using PayPal but I like the direct deposit I have set up with square. When Etsy sent me an email asking me to link my PayPal account into Etsy direct pay I decided time to sever the store from my marketing strategy.
Most aren’t aware of the deceptive practice this implies, which is you pay PayPal and Etsy a combined percentage of nearly 6% per sale. Plus there is a security issue I am concerned with, Etsy is not the most secure site but PayPal I am completely confident using their shopping cart. I want my customers a safe shopping experience and if I am not confident using Etsy then why should I ask them to be?
There is trial and error with setting up stores and websites and sometimes you head down the wrong path. Today with a bit of study and some experimentation with what works with your art or products you can finally see a direction to head.
Check out my different websites and shops. See what I have done and maybe you can use my information to expand your own art or product.
