“Into the Deep” 30″ x 40″ Acrylic Painting on Canvas

She was originally drawn to “Into the Deep” because of it’s warm and rich fall colour palette. However, as time passed, I feel as though this painting has evolved and come to mean so much more to the both of us.

After a major life change, a new home and a fresh start, this painting has become a symbol of rejuvenation and celebration!

“Into the Deep” Detail Image of vibrant colour and thick texture

I’ve always felt that falling autumn leaves are representative of change and the passage of time, letting go of the old and celebrating the infinite possibilities of what is to come. A time of quiet introspection, reflection and hope.

I’m so happy for my new friend and I am over-the-moon excited for her to finally see her new painting in person! My hope is that it will bring her a lifetime of joy and inspiration.

This painting was an absolute joy to create!

It’s part of a new series of abstract landscape paintings which explores the beauty of the Southern Alberta landscape. As a native Calgarian, I’ve spent my lifetime studying and enjoying this view – the vast prairies, the majestic Rocky Mountains and of course, the big, beautiful, ever-changing Alberta sky.

As a special gift to celebrate a milestone birthday, my collector wanted a special painting that reminded her of home in Alberta.

When she saw it, she fell in love. She said it captured the beauty, colour and vitality of our unique landscape but with an exciting abstract interpretation. It was a perfect fit!

“Head In the Clouds” (Detail Image) 72″x40″ Acrylic Painting on Canvas

The texture in this painting is unreal!

Layers, and layers and layers of paint and colour were added to achieve a three dimensional, sculpted interpretation of the terrain.

To create my contemporary landscapes, I sculpt and mould the paint using a variety of palette knives to apply the paint directly onto the canvas, creating a thick texture that can be felt as well as seen. The paint itself, up to one inch thick, becomes a landscape that can be experienced and traveled by touch. Thereby, making the painting come alive on the canvas, engaging the viewer and inviting them into the beautiful world I’ve created.

Summer Update + NEW Landscape Paintings from Canadian Abstract Landscape Artist Melissa McKinnon

It has been an incredible summer for me and my family – full of wild, crazy adventures and a few blissful lazy days too 😉

My biggest passion (after painting!) is travel. Exploring the culture and landscape of different countries is extremely fulfilling and inspiring for me. This summer, I had the opportunity to visit one of my favourite countries in the world – Italy! The art, the food, the wine, the people…it was incredible!

Then, my husband and I packed up our two daughters and spent some time traveling around Nova Scotia in eastern Canada, also beautiful and spectacular in every way.

Each trip was unique and inspiring. I had the opportunity to document my experiences through sketches and paint. Stay tuned for photos, stories and a new series of paintings inspired by my travels through Italy and eastern Canada.

How was your summer? Did you visit anywhere new and exciting? Leave a comment and let me know what your summer highlight was!
