“Remember Me” Poppy Field Series – Acrylic Paintings

"Field of Red" Poppy Field - Acrylic Painting on Board $395

“Field of Red” Poppy Field – Acrylic Painting on Board $395

This time of year is important for so many reasons. Tomorrow is Remembrance Day here in Canada (Veterans Day in The USA) and it is a significant day for our family to remember and give thanks to all who fought for our freedom.

Both of my Grandparents as well as my husband’s Grandfather fought and survived WWII. His great uncle James McKinnon fought on the beaches of Normandy, was captured by the German forces and was later executed.

Our family has a lot of people and many sacrifices to remember. When I was younger, Remembrance Day / Veterans day didn’t have such a significant meaning to me as it does today, but now that I have children of my own, I have a better understanding of the gravity of war. I want to impart a sense of soberness and ultimately ensure our family has a tremendous amount of gratitude for all of our brave veterans.

As I was thinking about the significance of Remembrance Day I felt the need to express all of my emotions through paint.

What began as one painting soon grew into five.

 Like all flowers, the poppy is a symbol of life and resilience. Every winter, particularly here in Canada, the flowers are beaten down by the elements but every spring they come back in full bloom bigger and stronger than the year before. Its this persistence, resilience  and hunger for life that I wanted to capture in these paintings.

“In Flanders fields the poppies blow

Between the crosses, row on row,
That mark our place; and in the sky
   
The larks, still bravely singing, fly

Scarce heard amid the guns below.”

SOLD! “A Night To Remember” Original Acrylic Aspen / Birch Tree Painting by Contemporary Canadian Artist Melissa McKinnon

SOLD!

This painting was purchased by a wonderful naturopathic doctor  to hang in her new clinic in Taylor, British Columbia! I’m so happy that my work will be seen and enjoyed by so many people while visiting her clinic. It will certainly add warmth and create an inviting, cozy atmosphere for all of her patients.

This painting has been a favourite of many and I’m sad to see it go. Although, I look forward to see it hanging in it’s new home in Taylor, BC.

“When I started this painting, I set out to paint with a palette of reds, yellows, and white. However, when I saw that tube of copper paint from the corner of my eye, I just had to use it. From that moment on the entire look and feel of the painting changed and took on a life of its own. Because my paintings are so thick with texture, most of the metallic copper layer is hidden under layers and layers…and layers of paint, but in just the right places it peeks out and shimmers in the light giving this painting a stunning and truly unique look.”

To see  my other paintings that feature a subtle metallic sheen, view “Little Seeds” and “My Dream For You”.
