a Muskoka River painting

Available through the Paula White Diamond Gallery

https://paulawhitediamond.com/product-category/serena-west/

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!

When I go walking in the woods among the towering pines near my home in Muskoka, Ontario, I have time to get quiet and think.  I've often thought that trees are good metaphors for our lives.  I created this painting thinking how we are often like trees in a forest, standing alone, yet surrounded by hundreds of other trees. 

The Canadian pine - a symbol of strength and natural beauty.  Enjoy the calming nature of this forest art print in your home.

"and bloom" - a Canadian landscape painting

Regular price $235.00

Tax included. Shipping calculated at checkout.

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.

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.

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.
