Gold highlights horizon in original mini canvas.

We've Struck Gold
Acrylic on mini 4 x 4" gallery wrapped mini canvas. (not available).


"We’ve Struck Gold" is the title chosen by my godson and his fiancée after much deliberation.

At first glance, the golden horizon is not noticeable, but hold the canvas up to the light, and that gold really pops! The colours reminded us of the Great Lakes again, particularly Georgian Bay and the Tobermory area. So it is added to the Canadian Vignettes series.

Perfect small canvas for gift giving

Painted on a small canvas, this is the perfect gift.

It is easy to mail since the scene is painted on a 4” X 4” canvas. It sits on its own on a mantel or on a desktop at work and reminds the owner that summer can be a state of mind...ha! remind me of that statement when we are in the middle of a January blizzard.

The gallery wrapped canvas can hang on the wall with other beach or trip mementoes. Its deep sides are painted and it doesn’t require the extra expense of a frame. It is small enough that it transports quite easily in a suitcase as well.

Incidentally, my godson and his fiancée did the exact opposite in their yearly trip abroad. They left our hot, humid Canadian summer and travelled to Iceland. The weather was definitely on the cool and frosty side, a welcome reprieve to be sure.  Last summer, they spent a month in Thailand and upon their return, we celebrated their birthdays (July 30,31). For that occasion, I painted Kiwi, their adorable cat.

Other small canvases will be available for sale in the Canadian Vignettes series. Visit my website as I will be updating the gallery and the shop. Of course, you can always contact me should you wish to reserve any painting in advance.

Don't forget to check my Custom Pet Portrait page if you wish to have your furry companion painted in time for Christmas gift giving.

Please note:  I am on holidays in Europe until September 15.
