This is a 24x36” acrylic painting on a gallery thick, 1.5” birch wood cradle board.
The scene is of an Algonquin Park islet, featuring four pine trees with the fresh waters of Tom Thomson Lake lapping quietly against its shore. The gorgeous image referenced for this painting is by photographer Eric Batty (@ericbatty), who graciously gave me his permission to use his photograph.
As soon as I came across Eric's photograph on Instagram, I was immediately captivated by its peacefulness. I am immensely soothed by this scene, so much so that looking into it is a nearly full body experience. I can almost smell the pine, the stimulating breeze coming across the lake, hear the susurration of the wind in the branches, the water flirting with the shoreline, feel the calm sunlight against my skin. Painting this made me yearn for a backcountry canoe trip through Algonquin Park. I hope you receive as much tranquility from this painting as I do!
The scene wraps around the side of the cradle board by a 1/2”, the remaining depth is raw, blonde wood. The entire piece, edges included, is double-coated in a satin varnish.
**Please note: This painting is scheduled to be scanned for prints in early August and cannot be shipped / picked up until scanned. I will be in contact the moment it's free to move onto its new forever home <3
It will take anywhere from 2-4 weeks for the painting to be carefully packaged and shipped to reach its destination, depending on the destination's distance from Toronto, Canada.
Local pickup is available and encouraged for local clients :)
This artwork is also available as a giclées on stretched canvas and fine art paper.

Cleaning and care instructions:
- Paintings get dusty from time to time, that’s okay! I recommend making a micro-fibre cloth lightly damp with clean water, and very gently running it over the area(s) in question.
- When moving / working with canvases, it’s important to not let the work lean into anything etc. that could puncture, or distort the material.
- When it comes to prints, I highly recommend handling them with clean, or gloved hands, even the oils on our skin can impact the sheen and colouring of prints.
