Painted furniture custom-made keepsake nature box is painted with botanical garden flowers and woodland herbs in greens and whites by nature artist, Laurie Rohner.I handcrafted and hand painted this nature box for my shop Between The Weeds.

Hand Painted One of a Kind Keepsake.
Painted Furniture Botanical Nature Box with Woodland Garden Flowers and Herbs

I painted the poplar wood a lovely shade of the softest creamy gray taupe white. I love this base color.

To compliment the color I decided to use a subtle simple design with greens and white flowers that cascade down the front. The botanical woodland flowers are from hydrangea to Queen Ann’s Lace and Lily of the Valley.

Display it on a chest of drawers or table. Stuff it with journals or scarves or even in the bath with toiletries. Easily compliments farmhouse cottage or loft decors. Great gift for the bride or wedding couple. Give it to your Mom for all the family memories. Makes a great housewarming and birthday gift,too.

The sides of this nature box are 1/2 stock poplar with mortised hinges.

The design is sketched on my hand crafted wood keepsake box. I hand paint and add my signature line work. Each box is a one of a kind work. I do not use stencils transfers or prints and they are always my original work. A functional piece of art can easily fit any decor from traditional funky whimsical or of course farmhouse.

Flowers and berries help fairies assist you.

Take the worthiness that is yours, and let the “Fairies of the Universe” assist you. Stop taking so much responsibility upon yourself, and live happily ever after. Shorten that crevasse between where you are and where you want to be, on every subject, to now, now, now, now, now. Ride the wave. Just pluck the fruit… You don’t have to be the one who puts it in the ground any more. You can just skip across the top of things and pluck the fruit of all of the things you want. “Oh, fruit. Oh, delicious this, delicious this, delicious this, delicious this.” In other words, it’s all right there for you; it’s ready for you to receive it as fast and as soon as you will vibrationally let it in. —Abraham

How does being brave when creating make your art better?

How does being brave when creating make your art better? This was asked during an interview with Lilla Rogers, top art agent, on the Do What You Love blog

LR: As an artist, you must congratulate yourself on having the courage to create. Artists are among the most courageous and self-actualised people I know. You’re digging deep and bearing your soul. You’re not following a pattern or adding up a list of numbers. Instead you are confronting a piece of white paper and on it, you’re inventing every line, shape, and colour. You’re making a piece of art in your own particular style which is a reflection of your unique personality. And then, God forbid, you show it to others in hopes that they will license or buy it! Holy smokes! We live in a culture that requires artists to sell their work in a competitive environment if they are to make a living from their art. It’s almost the antithesis of creativity. So congratulate yourself! 

 

That’s why it’s really important to constantly stay inspired. It’s worth it, because yes you can certainly make a living as an artist and it’s such an amazing thing to do. The whole point of being brave is that you get what you really want!

I think artist of all levels of talent and professionalism should keep this in mind and as she so adeptly said “So congratulate yourself”.

Below find what inspires me and plant some courage of your own in my planter painted with wildflowers and botanical flowers.

Cottage painted planter nature functional art.
