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.

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.

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

Subtle colors influenced my botanical watercolor.

I love color and color does not always have to be bold and bright. Sometimes subtle undertones of color are just what is needed. This is a new watercolor mixed media painting from Laurie Rohner Studio at Between The Weeds.

A few of my watercolors…


White Lilies
The Pink Lady


Watercolor are my first love. My technique is a process that is long and labor intensive taking many days to complete. I use a technique called glazing. I paint my images several times building and layering the pigments with washes of color. I find it gives the images a quality of depth and realism which is not what you expect with watercolor paintings. Most of the time I work from a multitude of photos to sketch out how I want the painting to look. I choose my color palette and then lay the first washes down on a cotton rag cold pressed paper. Recently I have experimented with some other materials such as aqua-board and watercolor paper mounted on board.

This painting The Pink Lady is in my collection and it is the painting that started me on this path of watercolor painting in large format. I had just recovered from a serious car accident and had lost my job all within weeks. This is a very special painting and I keep it because it represents how fragile life is and even though things look bleak you can always find light in your life.

The Shaded Trees is on the Panel I had discussed and though I enjoyed the subject matter I found my style and technique did not work as well on this base. I love this painting because I expect to see some magical beings to suddenly appear popping out from behind the trees.

Black Eyed Susans in the Field



You have to smile when you see Black Eyed Susans in the Field and that is this paintings sole purpose. Happy and content and ready for what ever is ahead.
