A scenic watercolor landscape of cardinals sitting in the pines watching the barn. An original nature art by Vermont artist Laurie Rohner shows the green mountains in the distance. The landscape is a lush green and there is a dirt road cutting through in front of a barn. Not to worry there is a farmhouse and large horse barn just around the bend. This is what you find in Vermont.

At Waters Edge Watercolor Lakeside Hills Landscape by Laurie Rohner
Title: At Waters Edge – Medium: watercolor on paper

At Waters Edge is a watercolor a lakeside landscape created from the imagination of my mind. I can feel the air is warm and there is a log I am sitting on though you can not see it. My feet dangle in the cool water. Off in the distance is a green heron looking for some fish. The hills are softly shadowed green by the passing clouds. The world could not be any better. 

Please stop by my online studio and browse the watercolor and oil paintings of flowers landscapes and critters now available.

Bluebells make me smile!

I finished another watercolor last week and this watercolor is all about bluebells. It is not of any particular spot in the world except for maybe my minds eye. I pieced together some of the landscapes around me in Vermont with a few favorite spots in the UK. This is what I came up with and hope you enjoy.

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.

watercolor of flower pink hollyhock and bee

Floral Garden Flowers

Watercolor flower of pink hollyhock and bee in an original botanical garden floral nature art by Laurie Rohner is a detailed delicate hand drawn and painted watercolor.

I love the colors of the pink petals going from pale pink to almost red. The centers have a shot of yellow. The green leaves are spring green and flash in a mild contrast against the creamy ivory background.

I chose an 8 x 8 inch format but you can crop it down to fit a standard size frame and mat. The paper is high quality 140 lb watercolor paper.

Hang it in the nursery, give it as a gift or keep it for yourself.

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.

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.

Sharing some warmth during these cold days.

Woodland Winter Tree Landscape
Woodland Winter Tree Landscape

So how is everyone doing this year in 2015? In the northeast my heart does go out to you. I remember when living in NJ around 1993-94 (not sure of years) there was a similar weather pattern happening and the snow kept coming down. I not only shoveled by hand my drive but then hiked up the hill to shovel out my parents. They were both retired Dad with high blood pressure and Mom too much like me born with the attitude if it has to get done then do it. Still have the same attitude and proud of that gift she gave me. Anyway, it became a game to find where I could throw the snow since the piles were now way above my head. I also remember the camaraderie between neighbors all doing what we could to help each other. Knowing the Bostonian heart well I am sure that camaraderie is alive and well today in your town.

Better sunny days are coming.

Happy Days!

Today in North Carolina it is warmer but by tonight I will be in temperatures I saw in Vermont. Heating systems are not capable of handling such drastic temperatures. Mine has been working overtime with the cold morning temps and found out yesterday I needed oil for the back up system. Well the last time I ordered oil since switching my system to the heat pump was two years ago but now no oil in the tank for back up. Ugh! Called the oil company and the very nice gentleman said there was no way he could make it to my place until next week. Oh No! Then he said listen to me there is something you can do. Go down get a 5 gallon can and fill it with diesel fuel. You can add that to your tank and it will be fine. Bless that man because I did, added several 5 gallon cans and this morning when I turned up my heat on came the warmth.

Help each other if you can and if you cannot help a smile works wonders along with thank you.

Stay warm!

Quotes

Today. Today I embrace my intuition.

This year started with a feeling that this was going to be a grand year, full of new exciting profitable projects and selling my studio home. It is November and I still am waiting for someone to buy this home. I am still waiting to sink my teeth into that new exciting project. I am still living in a place called limbo town. With each hour day and month I have grown more anxious and fearful that my timeline won’t be met. I wake every morning with hope seeking for an answer only to flop into the bed at night totally exhausted and stressed. My body aches from the stress and my mind is on its own continuous loop never disengaging making getting a good nights sleep not so possible. Yet today I got up thinking today is different. Today is different because it is today.

Today I stop waiting. Today I start doing. Today I start allowing. Today I stop controlling. Today is new and exciting. Today is the project I have searched for starts to give birth. Today when I fall into bed I will be tired not from stress and dreams unrealized but from working and creating in complete synergy of my life. No restrictions. Today I am co-creating my story.

No more thinking it through or is this being realistic? Being realistic and thinking it through got me to this point and well that did not work out to well for me. Today I embrace my intuition, my soul whispers, the little signs you only see when you stop pretending they are not there. Today my belief in the divine plan exists is my guide. Today it all begins, an epic journey, is today your today?

Quotes

And the veil gets thinner.

I love this time of year and not just because the leaves shine in an array of gorgeous color. Number one reason is I love ghosts, spooky things that go bump in the night  and whispers you hear in the air. This is the time of year when the veil between our realities gets thinner. You catch a glimpse of a shadow in the corner of your eye and tell yourself it was nothing. Maybe you hear someone talking low and barely audible only to say it must be coming from outside or next door but of course some reason certainly not a spirit or ghost. This is a common occurrence in my world and I have come to accept it as normal. I think you would call that being an Intuit but it is just being a bit more sensitive to energy around you.  I also have great respect for the things I cannot see and never play around with spirit games such as séance and Ouija  boards. I accept their presence it is real. I think of these spirits as guides ancestors and angels and they are here to aid and help us. It is only when you open the portals and gates to dark negative energies that negative spirit enters. Unfortunately it is not a game and the negative energy can now hang out and play. I wonder if you know how many spirits and guides are with you at this moment? You may be surprised.
