A vibrant watercolour depicting a riverside view looking lengthwise instead of across the river, a rocky outcropping looming over a sandy beach where a canoe is tethered. There are trees in the distance, and undulating clouds.
A watercolour image of a gentle shoreline scene, with a little water lifting upon a crescent-shaped beach, some vegetation in the foreground and what might be flowers visible amongst the vegetation in the background.
Watercolour painting of a river scene depicting part of a wooden building, a pathway, rocky outcrops, a wooden fence, and the Saint Lawrence River in the distance.
Watercolour painting of an inlet on a river, with an anchored small sailboat near the shoreline and a large rocky outcrop behind it.
A head-and-shoulders oil painting of James Coristine, wearing a black coat and cravat, white collar and shirt. He looks to be between the ages of 30-40, with side-parted dark hair, and long sideburns. His expression is calm, though his complexion is flushed; he gazes into the distance to the right of the viewer.

Colour photograph of the view of a well-maintained lawn in front of a large verandah, visible in the foreground. In the distance, on the lawn, are three empty white lawn chairs. The lawn is rimmed with cedar and fir trees.
