About This Piece
In life we are always going through so many transitions, lately I want to make things simpler, and this shows up on my canvas


"Back To Basics" was a special piece. As I started to paint I thought of the tranquillity and minimalism that I now want in my life. Less stuff and more experiences, more tranquil moments down by the lakeside, being grateful for everything in my life as I look back and think that I've done a great job... now it's my time to just sit back and breathe...


Maureen McNeil is self-taught and in love with trees. She uses different methods to get to the glow that she constantly chases, replicating what she sees when she steps outside and creating beautiful Canadian art inspired by the landscapes in her backyard.  


She loves to disappear into the world of colour and endless possibilities… her meditative practice, curiosity, and the beautiful landscapes of Canada guide and inspire her daily. 


You can find her in her studio/gallery in Lorne Park Mississauga along with her fabulous husband, four children and their dog, Eddie.
