bright tree art inspired by Muskoka landscapes hangs on a wall

"believe" - A Muskoka landscape oil painting on canvas

Regular price £199.00
/
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.

"Captive" - Oil Painting on Canvas

Regular price £313.00
/
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.

This painting was created to remind us that we are all worthy of love. 

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!

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.

This 24x24 inch painting is named Lotus in honor of all of our stories.  Varying brushstrokes and bold colors represent our beautiful diversity, while the symbol of strength embellishes her neck. 

May this painting remind us of our sisterhood and the beauty that we hold as women of the entire world.

It is the little things that seem to make up the best parts of our days.  Moments with family, warm sunny spots, cozy times with a pet, tiny flowers.  I am trying to remind myself to cherish those seemingly little things that add up to be the real and truly important things in my day-to-day life.

I created this piece with these thoughts in mind and I hope that they bring to mind your "little things" that are actually the important things.
