Check out my newest flowers on wood.

hand painted wood illustration with flowers

Along the sides of the roads in Vermont wildflowers are in abundance and I am in heaven. It is inspiring to drive along with Jessie as co-pilot stopping and picking a few blossoms so I can paint them later. Above are two illustration watercolors on paper applied to wood shingles from my old 150 yr. old barn.

Flowers are illustrated on paper and glued onto a 150 yr old wood shingle I saved from my barn. The flowers are delicate and detailed of loosestrife, daisy, aster and wildflowers. The drawing is sealed with lacquer spray and a black leather cord is ready to hang your art.
Wood measures: 14 x 3.5 inches

A delicate delightful illustration of pink and purple flowers on paper. I apply the illustration to a 150 yr old wood shingle from my wonderful old barn. I attached a hemp cord to the illustration and tied with a bow.

Illustration measures 8 x 2 inches.

Great for the bath bed kitchen or nursery. Give as a housewarming or hostess gift. Love it.

More to come…enjoy!

Pink Peony improved.

This watercolor of a pink peony worked very nicely on a white background yet I never felt it was finished. After much debate I decided to work the background in and more definition added to the pink peony flower.

Pink Peony a botanical garden flower floral watercolor original artwork by Laurie Rohner is detailed realism, a favorite of many. I show the subtle shades of pink burgundy blue and brown as the light hits the petals.

I painted this flower from a photo I had taken of one of my peonies blooming in my very own garden. It is the first of a series of peonies being painted in a range of colors. This painting comes unframed. I used 300lb watercolor cold press paper which is thick with a slight texture (as shown in the second photo). The painting is over 8 x 10 inches with a nice border to make it easy to frame.

Working on floral watercolors.

Since moving back to Vermont I feel the tug or maybe my muse whispering in my ear to get back to my watercolors. Focusing back to creating realism with watercolors and painting botanical flowers and Vermont landscapes.

Original floral watercolor of red tulip.

A single red tulip garden flower watercolor with detailed delicate realism is an original painting by Laurie Rohner.
My red tulip, a botanical original art floral watercolor, represents my love of botanical artwork. It is so real you feel you can scoop it up and hold it.

Great to give as a housewarming gift but why not give to your sweetheart.
My flower stays alive forever.

Can be framed with mat and frame or mounted on mat under glass.
I also love the new way to frame watercolors by adhering the artwork to a board sealing with non yellowing spray and framing as you would any oil painting.
Happy to help with framing options, please ask.

It is now official.

What a month. But after some unrelated conflicts I finally stopped by my town office in Brandon Vermont and applied for my permit to have my studio open. Paid my fee and now my studio is officially a business in Vermont.

I feel like I put the cart before the horse. You see there was someone who harassed me. Threatened me and my business and since I knew I needed to stop by Brandon’s Town Office it pushed me to go.

I always try to find positive energy in turmoil and if this individual was not inserted into my life I would not have gone yet. Also in doing so I met some wonderful people working in the town and got a chance to network in my town.

So thank you for the conflict universe. I am so grateful. A friend keeps focusing on the conflict that started this and my thought is stop, let it go. Don’t take my joy. I feel elated and joyful, positive in the recent choices I made. Mostly I am thrilled delighted and content.. Making the move back to Vermont is very right for me.

As a thank you if you order $200 or more I will send you with your order a bit of Vermont, an antique roof slate with an authentic maple leaf.  The leaves amazing red, orange and salmon variations.

The sales from my Etsy shop are few and spending more time and energy does not make sense. Etsy has changed. They are not that magical place where people could find quality handmade custom work. It is filled with prints knock offs from China and substandard products. There is still the most wonderful original work found but most serious artists have moved on with their own web sites.

Since I work with FineArtAmerica and Society6 where you can buy any size print, on anything wood, paper, canvas, acrylic or metal, frame it, or buy from the large selection of home decor and accessories with a hassle free return policy at an amazing price why Etsy? Etsy charges for everything and I had to add the additional charges to the final price I charged at Etsy. This really bothered me. I felt like I was cheating my customer, though I was upfront with my policy at Etsy. Etsy customer (I have a record of you) get 10% off on select products.

I have gone back and forth with this for a year. I gave Etsy till the end of the year to prove their value. Sadly the stats proved me right. Etsy has changed. My web sites get an average of 1500 hits a day where Etsy could not break the 50 mark. At one time I had an average of 500 to 700 a day at Etsy. Etsy has stopped listing with Google. Their home page is confusing. Most of the products cater to one demographic, not mine. My clientele tends to be older, affluent and searching for custom one of a kind art and work.

I hope my clients at Etsy read this and understand. Please come and join me at Laurie Rohner Studio or Between The Weeds Marketplace for my original art and furniture and visit Whitefield Studio the gateway to my prints and printed decor.
