The sky steals the show in this original acrylic painting.  Mornings on Ontario lakes are the gentlest of ways to start a day.  Whether you are out for a paddle or sipping your morning coffee on the dock, catching a sunrise by the water near my home in Muskoka sets the tone for any great summer day.

This charming 5x7" original acrylic painting is held in a handcrafted solid wood frame, with a small space between the painting and the frame to give the appearance that it is floating within the frame.  

  • 5x7" original acrylic painting on birch wood
  • framed in 1 1/2" deep solid Poplar wood frame
  • wired on the back and ready to hang

Reach out if you would like to commission your own custom painting!


1. I help you decide on a photo and the file size needed for the painting.

2. You will then receive a quote based on the canvas size and details in the painting.

3. A 50% deposit is required to begin. I will send you progress emails where you will be able to request changes, both after the initial sketch, and after the first layer of paint.

4. Once you are happy with the final design, the painting is varnished and dried. I then carefully and beautifully package your work for safe shipping across town or across the globe!


Serena worked closely with us to capture the unique personality of Chayse, Bailey and Rylee. These portraits truly show their individual character and quirkiness and will be forever treasured. Thank you Serena for your amazing skill and talent.
