Muskoka, Canada, is brimming with breathtaking spots just waiting to be discovered! My two sons and I cherished our little adventures down the trail to the beach by High Falls in Bracebridge, turning it into our own treasure hunt for wood pieces to craft with. We fondly called it "Treasure Beach," and the stunning view of the falls always made the hike worthwhile. I've collected countless fond memories and just as many photos on my phone from our times there. It's inevitable that one of these cherished moments would find its way into a painting.

This large 48"Wx30"H landscape painting is just the right size for over the sofa or bed, and perfect for reminiscing about your favourite moments in nature!

When you go kayaking with the whole family there are bound to be stories to tell!  This painting was taken from an afternoon on the river and holds special meaning to me.  Six of us went out, each in our boat, and we had a blast!  From serene views around every bend to water fights and maybe getting a little soaked I knew that there would be lots of great photo references on my phone from the day - and lots of great outdoor memories!

My wish is that this river painting reminds you of your memories in the great outdoors and along beautiful waterways!

How did I miss this hidden gem?  I've lived in Muskoka for years, and finally made it out to Hardy Lake Provincial Park last summer.  We walked the trail to this gem of an island and captured such stunning photos just as the sun was beginning to set through the trees.

When I was back in my studio, I just knew I had to paint this iconic Muskoka island!

This magnificent pine grows and reaches for the sun along the shores of Smoke Lake in Algonquin Park, Canada.  As my family and I explored the shores of the lake, the beauty of this pine growing toward the sun really caught my eye. 

Back in my studio, as I reached to paint the tall branches and the expressive clouds on this large canvas, I was reminded of the boldness of this tree.  I'm always impressed by the adversity that trees face; winds, sun, rain, snow, and yet ever grow towards the sun.

Painting this pine on a large canvas was my way of sharing that feeling of freedom and strength with you. Imagine hanging it in your home, and every time you look at it, you're right there by the lake in stunning Algonquin Park, sitting by majestic pines.

My wish is that this piece reminds you to keep reaching for your dreams, just like trees reaching for the sky.

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.

The crooked trees are the ones that always catch my eye.  

They grow in unexpected ways but always towards the sun.  You can tell that their growth journey hasn't always been easy by the strange directions some of the branches have taken.  But that's what makes them interesting and beautiful.  The imperfections, the uniqueness.  

It wasn't lost on me the metaphors that could be made between trees and us as humans.  I think that even when we face adversities and still forge on, that is when we become most beautiful.  Our crookedness - ever reaching for the sun and refusing to stop blooming makes us who we are.  This tree now has spring buds and I pass it most days when I drive my son to school, but I snapped this photo back in late winter because the crooked branches spoke to me in their "perfect, imperfection".  My apologies for the cheesy song reference... but I do think he's onto something.
