“From Where We Come”” 48″x36” Acrylic Painting on Canvas

This painting was commissioned by a local Calgary collector. She loved my existing painting “A Beautiful Mess” but chose to commission a custom painting to make it a personal experience.

We worked closely together to establish the inspiration for this painting and how best to communicate her ideas visually. The colours would remain similar to “A Beautiful Mess” but she wanted the number and placement of the trees in her painting to represent the members of her family. The two largest trees in the centre represent her parents standing tall and proud with their branches reaching out, encompassing all of their children and grandchildren.

This painting is a beautiful tribute to the memory of her late Father.

My collectors tell me that commissioning a painting is  a very unique and surprisingly personal way to experience art collecting. What they may not know is that my experience working with them is also very personal and rewarding. I love getting to know my collectors, learning about what attracted them to my artwork in the first place, working with them to identify their inspiration and how they want to feel when they look at their custom painting once it’s finished. I am inspired by their ideas and excited by the challenge of expressing them in a painted image as seen through my eyes and artistic style.

I view every commission as a collaboration with my collector. They are very special to me because I know how important these paintings are to them. These commissioned paintings are likely to be the ones passed down from generation to generation often becoming part of their family history. How cool is that!?

I have real love and appreciation for this painting, both symbolically and aesthetically. I feel like there are moments of spontaneous magic all throughout. I love how opposing colours were juxtaposed on the palette knife to create these beautiful and energetic marks, like little exclamation points that guide the viewer in and around the painting. These small moments are the things that make my heart beat faster and excite me as an artist.

What are the things that excite you most when looking at a beautiful piece of art?

Happy New Year From Hot, Hot, Hot Chile, South America!

To all of my friends, family and collectors of my paintings, I wish you and your family a very Happy 2014  New Year!!!

Thank you all for your love and ongoing support. 2013 was a spectacular year both personally and professionally. It is because of all of you that I am able to live my dream as an artist each and every day. I am forever grateful to you!

This year my family and I are grateful to be spending the holidays in Chile, South America for 6 glorious weeks. My Mother-in-law lives here along with my husbands huge extended family. We try to visit Chile every two years and every time we come I am always overwhelmed with how warm, loving and welcoming everybody is to us. I love how culture and traditions can be so different but the love of family is the same wherever you are in the world.

Our trip this year was incredibly special for me as my Mom was able to join us for the first time. This trip to Chile is her first time overseas since she immigrated to Canada when she was a little girl. It’s the best Christmas gift that I could ever ask for! I will never forget the memories that we are making here.

This is only a small part of our family in Chile. Here we are celebrating on Christmas Day.

As a Canadian, no matter how many times we visit, it still feels weird to be celebrating Christmas in 36 degree heat surrounded by palm trees!

SOLD! “High Water – Study” An Abstract River Landscape Painting by Contemporary Alberta Artist Melissa McKinnon

SOLD! “High Water Study” 12″x12″

My painting of the Bow River, “High Water – Study” was inspired by the severe floods that devastated much of Calgary and Southern Alberta in June 2013. As a born and raised Calgarian, it was heart breaking to experience the devastation of the flooding that overtook our beautiful city. I witnessed the flood first hand and I was awestruck by the erosion of boundaries between water and land and that is what I aimed to express in this painting.

“High Water – Study” 12×12 Original Acrylic River Landscape Painting on Canvas by Calgary Artist Melissa McKinnon

“High Water” is very personal to me and I am honoured that it has found a new home with fellow artist and new friend K. Anna Stoneburgh.

“I’m so glad you’re willing to part with this piece. It is tough to let favourites go, and I imagine in light of last summer’s flooding it’s likely an even more emotionally charged piece. And I’m honoured to be able to be its new owner, I’ll display it proudly. :)” -Anna

We both have a love of vibrant colour and thick texture. Click HERE to see some of her artwork.
