Fields Meet Mountains c

The pastures and fields meet the horizon at the Green Mountains in Vermont and the sky is a hazy soft blue. The pastures are a golden green with the tree line showing a hint of leaves changing color while the mountains are a soft blue-green and are highlighted by the hazy sky. Painted in an Impressionist realism style.

Title: Fields Meet Mountains

Medium: Oil on Linen Panel

An original oil painting using a linen panel and high-quality oil paints completes my painting. A workable size can easily be framed in a 5 x 7 opening.

The painting comes with a certificate of authenticity.

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

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.

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.
