bright tree art inspired by Muskoka landscapes hangs on a wall

"believe" - A Muskoka landscape oil painting on canvas

Tax included. Shipping calculated at checkout.

The trees in the small Ontario town that I live in must learn to thrive throughout all four of our Canadian seasons from subzero to heatwaves, and everything in between.  I'm in awe of their resilience, and how they can grow to tower above my head on my morning walks.

There is something about their gentle presence that reminds me to stay resilient and not give up, and it is my wish that these colourful Muskoka tree paintings do the same for you.

Tax included. Shipping calculated at checkout.

This painting was inspired by my realization that I had lived most of my life fulfilling the expectations of others, and had created my own prison of sorts. 

I finally saw through my limiting beliefs and understood that the prison door had always been open.  I was free to walk away from the expectations of others and create my own boundaries. 

The bright area lighting up her face symbolizes this choice of freedom.  Blue, green, and amber jewel tones scattered over her white dress evoke hope and possibility.  

Enjoy this oil painting as an inspiration to believe in your own voice and strength as a woman.

"Waves embrace me"

When I give all of my emotions permission to exist - even the negative ones - they tend to lose their power over me.  The light is then able to filter through and remind me that better days will return.

This oil painting honors all of our emotions.   It was created to help remind us that beauty can still be found in our darkest hours, just as the Lotus can reach for the light through muddy water.

Allow this painting to help you embrace all parts of your journey.

The dance to please others often results in losing ourselves.

This thought-provoking painting was inspired by the ballet move "En-pointe", where a dancer is on the tip of her toes.   Everything may appear perfect from the outside, but when we live our lives simply to please others we may end up hurting ourselves. 

Allow this piece to inspire you to listen to your own voice, create your own boundaries and reach for your dreams.

    She embraces her silver hair as a glorious crown.  The lines around her eyes and lips tell the story of her life's journey thus far.

    I painted this piece because I believe that if we can all feel that we are important, that our feelings matter, and that we can make a difference - then that is when age, gender, status, ethnicity, or the state of our body, become irrelevant.

    We are worthy of love because we exist - and we are beautiful!

    Now I look at these decisions as opportunities for new beginnings.

    A way to find my way back home.

    May this painting remind you that with every crossroad there is an opportunity for growth and beautiful new beginnings.

    This piece evolved as a way to express the intertwining stories of many women. Women that have come before me, women I have had the honor of knowing and those that will come after.

    As I created the piece I decided to leave the pencil and charcoal markings showing in some areas, as a symbol that we are all a work in progress. The beginnings of our stories are as important as the finished piece.

    As women we struggle, we grow, we help, we overcome, and from these growth phases, we become strong. We can be likened to a Lotus flower growing up from murky water and reaching for the sun, our beauty growing as we overcome challenges and reach for new potentials. 

    We are women, together we are beautifully strong.
