A waterfall painting

Available through the Paula White Diamond Gallery

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

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!

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

a Canadian landscape painting

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.
