I guess you could call me a change addict.

Already a month into the new year and things are being created to meet my new vision I have for my studio. 

I am so excited with this new direction. I guess you could call me a change addict. Creation is always changing. Our lives whether we like it or not always in flux and ever changing. Some things I could do without but mostly loving every fabulous moment. My dear mother would love to go outside on a very brisk cold day and say it makes me feel alive, that is how I feel with every nudge life creates for me. Change makes me feel alive.

I have changed things on this blog. 

I am focusing on my illustrations. I am journeying down new roads and it was due to one simple phone call. Someone asking me about trees and illustrating her story. Wow never thought about illustrating but when I took a look closer I think I always have. I illustrate nature. On boxes, furniture, pillows, pendants and art all with that wonderful illustrator's eye. It took her asking to open my eyes and mind to something I am thrilled to embrace and explore. Ah...where will this path lead? Nope don't know but I am thinking my friends upstairs do. 

With paint brushes, pencils, pens, paints and paper ready I am sketching and working on some new illustrations. 

A nature art watercolor original painting is an illustration of the forest or woods. Notice the three ladies standing guard over the forest scenic landscape of the woodland. This illustration watercolor is titled Vermont Woods.

What a lovely way to say thank you, Birthdays or any time of the year. Great to give with a frame ready to be popped in and hung as a loving reminder.

How much power one little word can have.

I am amazed at how much power one little word can have over how we may think about anything. 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.

Follow Your Heart 8 x 10 Watercolor by Laurie Rohner

Follow Your Heart (the heart is the image made with entwined vine and red trillium flower) is an original nature art illustration by Laurie Rohner. I enjoy spreading a little inspiration through my watercolors with inspiring words, sharing my hope that everyone can see the possibility for a great life.

This is slightly rough thick hand made paper.
Image size is 5 x 7 inch.
Paper size is 5.5  x 7.5 inch
