Painted on 150lb rag paper. The paper is used for pastels and inks but I loved the taupe tone so instead I used my watercolors and gouache. It is slightly askew but will lie flat once framed. This is a very versatile painting for contemporary or farmhouse homes and everything in between of course.

Landscape with Mountains Original Watercolor by Laurie Rohner Studio

It is early morning and you don’t know if the day is going to be sunny or cloudy because the fog is still lifting up from the field shadowing the distant mountains. It doesn’t matter because you are heading down the road in your truck drinking coffee as you miss the pot holes so you don’t spill anything on you. Next to you is your best pal your dog, and he is happy just to be anywhere.

Would you like a pet portrait oil on canvas original art painted just for you?

Original oil painting by Laurie Rohner
Original custom pet portrait oil painting on canvas by Laurie Rohner

Let’s be honest we are mad about our pets. Whether they have fur, hair, feathers, scales or a shell they are very dear to us. I know from my own experiences my dogs have been very important in my life. They have been companions, heroes, warriors, angels, friends, and partners in this journey of life. My only wish is they could be with us longer, still wonder why they live short lives. I am convinced every animal stays connected to us and when we finally take the last breath not only are the people we connect with but the animals too.

I have gotten a bit tired painting flowers and lately had a wonderful experience to paint my realtors recently passed dog, Molly. For whatever the reason I had I felt a tug to paint something new. Painting a loved animal seemed to be the perfect answer. After getting a photo or three from Ellen, my fabulous new realtor, and pulling out a canvas I started to go to work.

This is the image of Molly
This is the image of Molly

Is this not the sweetest face? Her eyes were icy blue, very different and hard to paint without losing the emotional essence of the dog. There were also two other photos of her in the fields and grass. I liked the way she laid here and used this position for the painting but added a painterly ground of grass for her to lie on. I also saw her as blues and purples since I hate black in paintings. I mapped her out and started to apply the base shades of color.

Molly almost completed.
Molly almost completed.

I liked the way she was coming along but now comes the detailing and highlighting. She needs to be polished and Molly’s emotions needs to shine through.

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.
