Herbs and garden flowers are illustrated in watercolor and ink.

Herbs and flowers are illustrated in my watercolor painted on clay board. The watercolor is subtle and makes a wonderful compliment to the ink work. The hint of sky is reminiscence of a summer sky with the herbs and flowers painted in the same subtle hues. I love the contrast of the ink and how the flowers pop.

Try inserting ‘and’ instead ‘but’ then follow your heart.

I was listening to a new podcast at The Inspiring Artist, by speaker Samantha Bennett from The Organized Artist Company, I found fantastic ideas. The one that seemed to pop out today was to stop using but and insert and. Simple and so precise.  Think about how many times a statement an action a dream is started only to find it fall away depleted and forgotten because of that tiny word but got in the way. For instance I want to sell my art BUT I have no experience. Now insert I want to sell my art and I have no experience. And becomes the connection to the answer and not the ending of your goal. No experience doesn’t mean your art isn’t any good and everyone has to start from somewhere.

Last package shipped, last card mailed, time for a break.

I walked in the door after coming back from the post office with my last load of mailed orders. This is a busy time of year for people trying to make a living as a creative shop owner. This is the first year I feel business fell short. I decided to stop look at what I have done and maybe it is time to change things around.

A watercolor original nature painting of a woodland bird titled Cedar Waxwing is an original artwork by Laurie Rohner.

I love these birds Cedar Waxwings, when they make their way through my area. They love to eat the red berries on my holly. A waxwing sits on the holly branch spying which berry to eat next. The holly and berries sit against a watery blue sky. This is a watercolor mixed media illustration.

Taking the weekend off.

This is my time off weekend. I relax, reflect and enjoy the winter solstice and prepare for my Christmas. Tucker a large standard poodle likes this too, he gets some freshly backed homemade treats.

I am not positive what direction I will take but know as in all business I have to be willing to keep an open mind to all possibilities available. It is why I adore being my own boss. Taking time reflecting, imagining where I want to go and setting a plan mapping out my intentions is my weekend’s goal. Maybe it can be yours?

Happy winter solstice!
