Participate relentlessly in the manifestations of your own blessings.

“Happiness is the consequence of personal effort. You fight for it, strive for it, insist upon it, and sometimes even travel around the world looking for it. You have to participate relentlessly in the manifestations of your own blessings. And once you have achieved a state of happiness, you must never become lax about maintaining it, you must make a mighty effort to keep swimming upward into that happiness forever, to stay afloat on top of it. If you don’t, you will leak away your innate contentment. It’s easy enough to pray when you’re in distress but continuing to pray even when your crisis has passed is like a sealing process, helping your soul hold tight to its good attainments.” Elizabeth Gilbert

Watercolor Painting Botanical Garden Flower Pink Foxglove

Watercolor Botanical by Laurie Rohner

Botanical garden flower watercolor painting of a pink foxglove (digitalis) detailed large original nature artwork by Laurie Rohner. Nature art at its best.

Foxglove 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.

Palette: deep green, pink, pink, poppy red, soft yellow, white, cream, green,brown.

Image size: 30″ x 11″
140lb rag hand molded watercolor paper

You can use this painting as a focal point in a farmhouse cottage style room and mix white painted furniture with pops of creams soft pinks and deep greens. Lovely piece of original artwork for the Hampton Cottages.

The copyright is for photographing and does not appear on the original.

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.

The painting was finally returned from an exhibit it was in.

All rights are not transferable with the purchase of this painting and remain with the artist.

This is unframed and ships in a fabricated flat container with added insurance.
The shipping charges are only an estimate. I ship my paintings via FedEx in special containers. I will confirm the cost of shipping with you before the painting is wrapped.

I ship everywhere please before you order ask for international shipping actual charge to your location.
