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.
