A farmhouse watercolor painted furniture bed tray is hand painted with garden flowers. There are poppy, coneflower, delphinium and more hand painted by Laurie Rohner. After preparing the tray surface I primed and painted the tray top with white paint. I sketched my flowers on and using watercolor flowers came alive. I applied ink line and sealed the tray with several coats of lacquer. I did not craft this bed tray but found this great bamboo bed tray at a store nearby. I did the delicate detailed watercolor art on the surface.

Foldable to store away
Use in bed or store on a table

New Between The Weeds Sign

Oh how much fun painting this sign with a twist. I took an old stretched canvas and repainted a painting of a whimsical farmhouse garden with my sign in the painting. This is the new style, a new branding for my studio. I decided being serious is overrated and fun is so much better.

Be sure to check out my shop for some new work.

Have a brilliant fun day.

How does being brave when creating make your art better?

How does being brave when creating make your art better? This was asked during an interview with Lilla Rogers, top art agent, on the Do What You Love blog

LR: As an artist, you must congratulate yourself on having the courage to create. Artists are among the most courageous and self-actualised people I know. You’re digging deep and bearing your soul. You’re not following a pattern or adding up a list of numbers. Instead you are confronting a piece of white paper and on it, you’re inventing every line, shape, and colour. You’re making a piece of art in your own particular style which is a reflection of your unique personality. And then, God forbid, you show it to others in hopes that they will license or buy it! Holy smokes! We live in a culture that requires artists to sell their work in a competitive environment if they are to make a living from their art. It’s almost the antithesis of creativity. So congratulate yourself! 

 

That’s why it’s really important to constantly stay inspired. It’s worth it, because yes you can certainly make a living as an artist and it’s such an amazing thing to do. The whole point of being brave is that you get what you really want!

I think artist of all levels of talent and professionalism should keep this in mind and as she so adeptly said “So congratulate yourself”.

Below find what inspires me and plant some courage of your own in my planter painted with wildflowers and botanical flowers.

Painted Furniture Cottage Planter Box

Botanical garden woodland painted nature planter box or tote is hand painted with botanical garden cottage flowers and custom made painted furniture. In the home and garden it is a great way to brighten up a farmhouse cottage chic home decor. Use in your kitchen hall entry or bath.

Use inside in the kitchen or use it for a planter with pansies or herbs planted in clay pots. Planter needs a liner (not included) if planting directly into the planter but not necessary.

My custom made and hand crafted wooden storage utensil tote or planter painted a cottage creamy white is one of a kind. I hand paint garden wildflowers on the front and back.

I use my tote for forks and knives and to keep my brushes clean and dry but you can add a plant or cut greens and you have a fabulous upscale shabby chic farmhouse cottage home accent. If you would like to use as a planter let me know and I will send some moss along to cover the pots at no charge(only within the 48 US states).

Making a few changes.

Painted Farmhouse Furniture
Painted Farmhouse Furniture Top and leg.

I have created some new things in Between The Weeds, mainly furniture. Honestly it is exciting  running the saws to make farmhouse furnishings again. It is distressed, simple lines,  handmade and crafted with found wood re-purposed bits and pieces and each one unique one of a kind. I am not mass producing each work but staying with the handmade quality of time-worn masters (not that I am one). Everything is functional and all you need is a little imagination to see the possibilities of this new work.

Between The Weeds Painted Furniture
Painted Small Chest of Drawers by Laurie Rohner Studio

I have also completed two custom pieces of painted furniture. The first is an old end table that had been damaged on the top. I made the repairs and painted it with a subdued palette and checker board top gives a whimsical touch. The second is a small chest of drawers, it has been all striped out. I love the color combo and the dark teal color is called Nile by Ralph Lauren. I had it custom mixed in a Benjamin Moore oil based paint. I have a tall cabinet I am painting in Nile. Can not wait to finish.

If you are in the area and want something different for your farmhouse painted home please stop in and check out these two whimsical beauties. Vintage painted farmhouse is a fun way to decorate and you only need a few painted pieces to make an impact or statement.
