Don’t you love Spring, I do.

I love spring. The trees pushing their sap up through the trunk and out into their branches. Then seeing the buds start to open and the seeds dangle from the ends. The dirt thaws and the flower bulbs break through up into the sunlight. That always amazes me how these delicate flowers can sprout with so much energy exerted just to be magnificent flowers from a bulb? The wildflowers and garden flowers start in with their dance and spring is alive and the world is singing.

New Watercolor on Canvas – Bird in Apple Tree

Bird in Apple Tree with Apples - Watercolor on canvas panel by Laurie Rohner
Watercolor on Panel – Bird in Apple Tree with Apples – Laurie Rohner

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.

Inspirational, Laurie Rohner, Quotes, Thoughts are energy

Let’s clean up our energy.

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?

Your Wings Exist Fly
Watercolor Illustration by Laurie Rohner

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.

Happy cleaning!

Laurie

Quotes

Do the best you can.

It is all anyone can do, the best they can. I am amazed at the amount people are happy with not doing and when someone calls them out on a mediocre job they are indignant. How dare you! Not me. Or I am doing what everyone else is doing  so why do any more? Do the most. Do the best. Do all you can with not one reward. Do it because you will not do anything halfway. Do it for yourself. There is a great feeling of doing the best you can.

Amaryllis Watercolor by Laurie Rohner

Why am I saying this? After a couple of weeks switching up my web sites, changing around my internet/TV service and still having a house on the market it struck me.  I worked with many people from all around the world (not by choice) and not one person could give me a straight answer. Is it me? Or did the human race become complacent and stop doing their best.

Painted Furniture Nature Box Keepsake by Laurie Rohner

Working for yourself is difficult. Working as an artist/designer/entrepreneur at times daunting, for one person wearing too many hats can be tiring. I wouldn’t have it any other way. I have had to learn web designing marketing and promoting products and myself in a world where texting is more used than the spoken word. You adapt and you work hard at always giving it (your business) your best.  Whatever the business is if you are marketing selling promoting and creating an agreement with someone then YES do your best.

Quotes

When did the nature become a dirty word?

Can you believe it? Can you believe it is Earth Day which is one of my favorite days because I work outside in the garden (weather permitting) and dig in the dirt feeling the soil under my nails and the smell of the earth fill my lungs. That is heaven in my world. 

BUT I want to know when did loving this earth and nature become a dirty word? It was noble to work with your hands and nurture nature. People thought twice before chopping down a 200-year-old tree. Somehow today that is not the situation.

Path to the Birches Oil on Canvas.

At the end of my street someone chopped down all the sell-able lumber trees and the small saplings were piled in huge piles to rot. Later I found out the person who owns the land needed some quick cash and sold the trees for lumber. I don’t know about you but when I see a landscape destroyed and left in chaos I get a horrible feeling in the pit of my stomach. 

As you drive along the country roads I see too much garbage. While living in Vermont this was something you rarely find. I travel with garbage bags and pick up the recyclable to bring back to my home to discard. So again I ask why is it easier to throw it out the window and not in your garbage can? Is it because being in love with nature not a good thing? 

We hear about climate (whatever) and nobody thinks maybe if we left the trees standing things would be better? Why cut a tree down to build a home when there is a perfectly wonderful home ready to be updated and loved again? 

Yes I do think nature is a beautiful word and maybe we should nurture nature and in turn nature nurtures us. We all have to learn to co-exist. In stead of looking down at the pad of your phone try looking around at the beauty of nature. Enjoy! Revel in nature’s wonderment.
