New watercolor of spring flowers for the new year.

New year and I have a bunch of new work in the studio. I am working on watercolors both in art and on furniture. This is the first watercolor titled Alive in a Spring Garden.

Spring garden flowers with bees and butterfly hand painted in this botanical art original by Laurie Rohner. The colors I chose for this painting range from creamy Daffodil yellows to Crocus purples with spring greens and soft Violet blues in the mix. Notice the bee tucked in the daffodil and a lazy butterfly on the leaf oh and don't miss the that other bee heading back to the hive, I guess. There is a hint of blue skies.

Now is the time for magic, woodland fairy magic.

Now is the time for magic, woodland fairy magic. Let's be a wee bit imaginative and let the volatile chaos that swirls around us to evaporate if not for a second. The Dow in the New York stock exchange hit a record trading loss of 1000 points for a brief second. For just a second there was darkness and then light. Fairies are great at reminding us to not take life and things too seriously. Things never disappear they just change form. The wee woodland fairy house below is a perfect example. It has changed form. I added a few more bits and nature finds to the art studio house which makes it even more adorable. Is that even possible?

NEW Hand Painted Watercolor Furniture with Botanical Flowers.

Don't you love this new look? 

Watercolors are one of my favorite mediums and when I discovered I could use them on other things besides paper, my mind went wild. Now I am using watercolors on clay pots and painted furniture. There is a secret to my method but I think I will keep that to myself.

Hand Painted Writing Table Botanical Watercolor Landscape with Drawer

New Design. Hand painted cottage style writing table with drawer features a watercolor botanical landscape top. This table is from the late 1890's. I thought it screamed for an updated look that still keeps the roots of the table grounded with its wonderful honey brown stained legs and drawer.

The top is custom painted with my new watercolor technique. Dancing under a sky of blue are botanical flowers of hollyhock, daisies and thistles to name a few. The edges are hand distressed.

Not to worry the custom painting is finished with several layers of varnish and waxed. This is a well made sturdy table made of pine. Use this farmhouse table for writing or working on the computer or as a dressing table in the bedroom.

Sorry but this is for studio pick up only.
Elkin NC area. Free delivery.

 hand painted garden pots and more.

Hand painted clay pot with a landscape of garden flowers hand painted around the outside of the Italian terracotta pot. I painted an assortment of garden flowers from hollyhocks and yellow daisies to thistles and Queen Anne lace and a bumble bee.

This pot is a straight flare sided pot with a rolled rim. I see pansies in the future for this little gem of a pot. Great to give to mom or a birthday gift.

Pot size is approx. 5 x 5 inches

Painted with watercolors and sealed with clear lacquer.
Just an Idea - I use clear antique dishes as saucers.

This is a one of a kind Italian terracotta painted pot which is a bit heavier than the typical nursery pots.

Botanical hand painted furniture is fun. 

Give your home a spring cleaning and add a piece of hand painted furniture for a new look. See more of my work HERE
