Maybe you know this but my house is for sale. I have hired realtors. For years I have waited for someone to find my house. This morning I was inspired to stop waiting and to ask for help from all of you out there to share this post. I know my special buyer is out there. I know all I need to do is to create a way for them to connect. So please share post tweet and so whatever you can so my buyer finds me. Gratitude. The joyful feeling of helping is all I can offer you. Thank you.

Love this wonderful quote from Abraham Hicks.

Is harmony one note that everybody is singing? Or is it a whole lot of notes that are in vibrational harmony with each other? When you give your attention to anything, the Universe responds to it. When two of you are giving your attention to it, and there is no contradiction, it is a powerful vortex. That’s why a gathering such as this can achieve a great deal as you come together in greater and greater harmony and take thought beyond that which it has been before.

—Abraham

Excerpted from: Chicago, IL on April 25, 1999

Allow your uniqueness to radiate.

Fabulous quote from Napoleon Hill.

I have been a bit down. We all have those moments when we doubt, anxiety hits. Today I wondered if it is the energy throughout the world of chaos hatred and fear contributing to my low feeling? If so I decided tonight to spread these uplifting thoughts. May you feel the possibilities and awesome-ness of being.

Feeling down? I know you can get up one more time.

Shine bright and allow your uniqueness to radiate.

Illuminating my disconnect with nature.

“Beauty is the illumination of your soul.” ~John O’Donohue

This is a peaceful place I would occasionally go to and collect my thoughts. I have discovered the huge disconnect with nature in my life. It is impossible for me to live without my connection with quiet scenes and clear skies with the aroma of wildflowers, ferns, the smell of woods after the rain. Simply to walk in the woods with the smells around me awakening my soul and watching animals and birds and companions, my dogs, is a must and has to be very much a part of my life. I would wither away if I had to live in a city but put me in a field with wildflowers or a river gently moving along and I am blissfully happy.

My studio and home is in a lovely neighborhood with friendly  enough people but I never felt connected. It is not home and I have not been able to do the things that ground me and connect me to what I need most. Nature.

I have lost many people in the past several years to accidents and disease. I have attributed these feelings to the loss and pain of grief until I realized that was just a part of it. The huge disconnect to the one thing that always made me feel secure and protected was being able to go and be one in nature. I have always had a place I could walk, sit, garden, be in.  I have never been able to do that simple pleasure here. It has made me feel scattered and if I am to feel connected and whole this has to be created in my life again. The pain and grief were not for people, not all of it, it was the disappearing soulful nature of me. I have grieved for that person only I am still here. Just waiting to illuminate my light to the world around me.

Now that I see what the pain is, the solution is really simple. Get busy and fill my life with that very thing that missing. I am moving to Vermont and I have found the perfect little house, a perfect area in Vermont. I know it is my house. I can feel it is my happy place. What I find very special about this place in Vermont is when leaving Vermont I saw a double rainbow not once but twice and it shown over to this little town. I hope it was a sign and now that I see I hope all will be well.  The universe does not have a time-table like we do but eventually if we stick with learning and growing ourselves we just might someday understand a wee bit more.

My special little house.

We are born to shimmer.

We are born to shimmer, we are born to shine, we are born to radiate, we are born to live, we are born to love, never hate.

I do not know where this quote comes from and wish I did. The words resonated deep within and it is my new mantra. Maybe it is yours now too.

Look at the world with a love of life.

“If we look at the world with a love of life, the world will reveal its beauty to us.” ~Daisaku Ikeda

Nature is always changing and revealing new and wonderful images that capture my heart and attention. As an artist it is my intention to share those images with my nature art. I have added two miniature oil paintings below of botanical garden flowers that happen to be from my garden. I think these make beautiful thoughtful gifts for any mother who loves flowers and art.

Pale Blue Iris Botanical Oil Painting Garden Flower Original Nature Art

Botanical garden flowers is an original oil painting of a Pale Blue Iris by Laurie Rohner. The artwork is original and painted on a panel.

The iris I painted here was almost white but had a blue hue about it. I love the feel you get from the wild bush strokes and color placement. Simple shabby chic artwork makes a nice addition for Farmhouse Cottages.

The iris is probably my favorite of flowers due to their range of differences. The shapes and colors of the petals and how the shadows cast intricate designs absolutely fascinate my painterly senses.
