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.

Measures:outside 14.75″ x 11.5″ x 8″ high. inside 12.75″ x 9.75″ x 6.5″ high.
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.

Every piece is signed and dated.
Hours to complete 7 1/2hrs
Ready to ship.

My hope is my functional art will shine a light into your life with beauty and joy.

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.

Wonderful for anyone who loves flowers or for the out door wedding gift.

Pale Blue Iris Botanical Oil Painting Garden Flower Original Nature 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.

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

Our past is not as important as our future.

So why is a car’s WINDSHIELD so large and the Rear View Mirror so small? Because our PAST is not as important as our FUTURE. So, look ahead and move on.

Work in the sense of joyously moving forward.

People will say, “Well, I have to work on my goals,” or, “I have to work on my visualization.” And we want you to think more about holding the vision because it is pleasurable to hold the vision, not because you’re trying to make the vision work in order to get to some place that you’re not now standing. “How much should I work?” We would say, work in the sense of joyously moving forward.  —Abraham Hicks

Recently I finished two paintings for a client.  I finished the paintings according to what I thought she had specified, took some photos and sent them to her for her approval. I heard back from her and my heart sank. She was not happy. Her vision was different then what I had painted. I read over what she was unhappy about and discovered her points were what I had also struggled with when working on the paintings. I knew I had to hear her words with love and not be offended or hurt because she now was upset. I sat and studied the paintings and discovered she was absolutely right and in every thing she found wrong was exactly where I had forced the painting to work. I learned many years before never completely finish a painting until the client says they like it. Now I was thankful I didn’t because I could rework the areas.

I had a new outlook and knew the solution was easy to fix. Why? I saw joy in the paintings and I felt joy in the work.  If not for the words from my client I would not have done my best work for these paintings. When I would think about them I would not feel complete but the opposite, I would feel I did not give joy and love to the work and I would have felt I failed myself. For me ii was paintings but for you it could be a whole world of infinite possibilities you do giving you a sense of joy. In this moment is it reading these words? An hour from now is it giving a child a bath, a dog a walk, saying hello to an old friend, raking some leaves, sitting alone with your self and loving the person inside? We all have goals and that is nice believe me I have too many goals. The key is no matter what the goal dream or visualization is do it from the hear, from a sense of joyous energy and you will feel it all come together.

In the painting Garden 1 I painted hollyhocks, coneflowers, bee balm, herbs and muscari and some bees with a hint of blue sky.

This is the second painting for my client Garden 2. In this painting it is a continuing landscape from the first with larkspur sweet pea, Queen Ann lace, herbs, coneflower and iris and don’t forget bees on a blue sky.

A last note is my client sent me a wow so much better than the images and she was absolutely thrilled.  This is joy realized.

Love is not in giving or the receiving: it’s in the being.

“The most important aspect of love is not in giving or the receiving: it’s in the being. When I need love from others, or need to give love to others, I’m caught in an unstable situation. Being in love, rather than giving or taking love, is the only thing that provides stability. Being in love means seeing the Beloved all around me.” Ram Dass

When a work is created does it spawn from a loving act of artist and the world they live in? For me the answer is yes because I paint and create through the love I have for nature. I can say with no hesitation I am in love with nature. It is a never-ending supply of inspiration. The loving energy of nature is all around at every moment and all you need to do is see. What a fabulous relationship you have when the Beloved is present. You need nothing and take nothing and all is…loved.

Start telling a better-feeling story.

Start telling a better-feeling story about the things that are important to you. Do not write your story like a factual documentary, weighing all the pros and cons of your experience, but instead tell the uplifting, fanciful, magical story of the wonder of your own life and watch what happens. It will feel like magic as your life begins to transform right before yours eyes, but it is not by magic. It is by the power of the Laws of the Universe and your deliberate alignment with those Laws.

Excerpted from Money and the Law of Attraction — 3/31/09

Today our society is telling stories with too much information about themselves and about others. In all these different versions how many are truthful and how many tell an awesome story. Inside each of us is an amazing magical story. Why do we not tell those stories? Probably because we are fearful of what might happen. Will we still be liked (not loved) I mean liked for the authentic story we tell. Will people accept me or understand? What is not understood is it is not the factual story the Universe is interested in, it is the story of feelings and emotions and how do you see ourself in this enormous wonderful existence on this tiny little ball called Earth. The story is about your connection with you and the deliberate alignment with the Universe. An alignment made up of equal parts of emotion (feelings) body (physical) and soul (energy). We are existing in physical bodies filled with emotions and at the core or the engine propelling us forward is a spiritual soul. There is a saying I love and it says Believe in yourself and magic will happen.

Watercolor Pink Foxglove Botanical Flower Original Nature Art Garden Painting

Watercolor on Paper available at Laurie Rohner Studio

Original large watercolor of pink foxglove is a detailed garden painting and an original botanical flower nature art hand painted by Laurie Rohner. Botanical art at its best.

Foxglove – digitalis – are an interesting flower to paint because they have many different blooms. I chose to show each one uniquely painted with detail depth. Imagine this flower surrounded by dozens of these botanical garden flower stems, it is nature giving us a smile.

Title: Pink Digitalis

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.

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

Do you live from happiness?

“When you’re Happy for No Reason, you bring happiness to your outer experiences rather than trying to extract happiness from them. You don’t need to manipulate the world around you to try to make yourself happy. You live from happiness, rather than for happiness.” Marci Shimoff.

When I gaze at flowers I feel happy and my heart sings. I guess that is why I paint so many flowers. I want to share that happiness. I have included two original watercolors because these put a smile on my face and hopefully yours too. Visit my studio at Laurie Rohner Studio for more art work.
