“High Water” 20×20 Original Acrylic River Landscape Painting on Canvas by Calgary Artist Melissa McKinnon

“High Water” 20×20

I created this painting in response to the Calgary and Southern Alberta Flood Disaster 2013. It warms my heart to be able to use my artwork to help raise money and awareness for all of our neighbours and friends who still need help to rebuild our city and neighbourhoods. By donating my artwork, I am able to raise more money for charity than I would have ever been able to donate personally.

I recently hosted my own personal art auction here on my blog which was incredibly successful. I created and auctioned TWO original Aspen / Birch Tree paintings to raise money for the Canadian Red Cross in direct support of the Calgary and Southern Alberta Flood Relief Efforts.

Read about it and see the paintings “Together We Stand” HERE and meet the lucky Calgarian who purchased the paintings HERE.

Even though “High Water” will soon find a new home – the smaller version (original light study) is available for purchase.

Update and Praise for “Together We Stand” – Two Original Paintings Created in Response to the 2013 Southern Alberta Flood Disaster

In June 2013 much of Southern Alberta was devastated by severe floods. Thankfully our family was unaffected by the disaster but many of our friends and fellow Albertans were. Over 100,000 people were evacuated and many of them suffered damage and loss of their homes and personal belongings.

As an immediate response to the disaster, I created and auctioned two original fine art paintings in effort to raise awareness and financial aid for the Canadian Red Cross in support of the Southern Alberta Flood Relief 2013.

You can view the original post HERE.

“Together We Stand I and II” (Diptych)
12×12 Original Acrylic Aspen / Birch Tree Painting on Canvas by Calgary Artist Melissa McKinnon
ART AUCTION, 100% of PROCEEDS donated to the CANADIAN RED CROSS in support of the Southern Alberta Flood Relief 2013
Bid on this painting at the bottom of this post or email melissamckinnonart@hotmail.com

I created these two paintings as a response to the flood devastation. I wanted to remind Albertans of how beautiful and inspirational our Province is. These paintings are a representation of the ever-changing beauty of our Alberta landscape as well as the resiliency that we as a people are known for. The paintings are titled ”Together We Stand” because even throughout this time of crisis Albertans have come together through countless hours of volunteerism, personal sacrifice and an unwavering positive spirit.

The online auction was a huge success! My sincerest gratitude to everyone who bid and/or shared the news via social media and word of mouth. It spread like wild fire! I even received a bid all the way from the Netherlands. I am truly touched and grateful that in only 3 days we were able raise so much money for the Red Cross.

I received this note recently from June, the lucky winner:

“Hi Melissa, just a quick note to let you know that the two paintings have now found their permanent resting place after several re-arrangements of both furniture and existing pictures. I love the paintings and as I said to you when I picked them up, although small they are full of life. They have been placed in the foyer so that they may be enjoyed by everyone who enters my home.Thank you also for doing this on behalf of the Red Cross in support of the flood relief and I am glad I was the lucky winner.

June”

Here is a photo of June, with my paintings proudly displayed in the foyer of her home.
