“With Wild Abandon” 48″x36″ Acrylic Painting on Canvas
Colourful Fall Aspen and Birch Tree Forest Painting by Abstract Landscape Painter Melissa McKinnon, Calgary, Alberta, Canada
This is a close up detail of one of the paint strokes in “With Wild Abandon”.
Do you see the heart?
It was completely a serendipitous ‘happy accident’ but once I saw it I had to leave it in the painting. It’s become a symbol of everything this painting and my work as a whole, stands for – optimism, joy and seeing the beauty in everyday moments.
In this process, I use a palette knife loaded with a selection of various colours and as I ‘pull the stroke’ the colours blend and create the varied blends and texture. The result is spontaneous, always different and could never be duplicated. It’s one of the things I love most about this series – each and every stroke is unique and beautiful in it’s own way.
