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

3 Comments

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!
