Cloudy Skies and Prairie Fields Landscape Painting by Contemporary Canadian Artist Melissa McKinnon

Light… Modern… Peaceful… are the words that come to mind when I look at this painting.

In this painting, the landscape has been interpreted in a fresh contemporary style using a combination of soft, subtle brushwork contrasted with thick, impasto texture, creating a work of art that can be felt with your hands as well as your heart.

The unique colour palette includes an endless variety of pale tonal greys that capture the subtle nuances of the sky on a cloudy overcast day mixed with pops of eye-catching vibrant, bold colour that add interest and a bit of drama to this overall serene and calming landscape painting.

“Soft Summer Light” (Detail) 48″x36″ Acrylic Painting on Canvas

Growing up in Alberta, surrounded by the Rocky Mountains, endless rural prairie fields and wide open, constantly changing sky has instilled within me, a deep appreciation of nature and the beauty that surrounds us. I believe that beauty is in the details – be it a stunning sunset sky full of vibrant colour or the tiniest prairie flower reaching for the sun in a sea of grassy field – all we have to do is pause for a moment and look. The beautiful colours and textures of the landscape have become a huge inspiration in my artwork and my aim is to show you that beauty in a new way.

Painting LIVE in Banff, Alberta – A Prairie Inspired Landscape Painting With Colourful Cloudy Sky After a Storm

Painting LIVE in Banff!
For the past few weeks I’ve been working on this gorgeous landscape painting commissioned by a national medical research company. I finished the painting live on stage at the Banff Springs Hotel at one of Canada’s largest medical conferences – an extraordinary experience!

The finished painting ‘From Darkness Into Light’ 36″x24″

Our intent was to convey the feelings of a person transitioning from the darkness of disease into health and light. The inspiration was a beautiful prairie landscape featuring a big cloudy sky. You can see the dark, tumultuous storm clouds on the left and how they begin to transition into glowing sun lit clouds.

Although the painting “From darkness into Light” has been purchased by the medical company who hired me, it became a study for a larger painting which I created afterward in my studio.

The billowing clouds and soft light give this painting a dramatic and beautiful atmosphere. The impasto brush strokes capture the feeling of movement and light felt when you are outdoors in the fresh air after a summer storm.

At the time of writing, “After the Storm’ is currently available for purchase.

Thank you…

for making this year the best one yet! It’s because of you that I’m able to live my dream of creating art everyday and share it with the world to enjoy.

2016 has been monumental, filled with so many incredible opportunities for which I’m eternally grateful for including:

~ First and foremost, the opportunity to meet so many new people who enjoy and support my artwork – thank you from the bottom of my heart!

~ The opportunity to place my artwork in the homes and offices of several new collectors this year (including the largest painting I’ve created to date for Ernst & Young – 8 feet long!).

~ An incredible, once in a lifetime, painting retreat in southern Italy (an email recap still to come!)

~ This year, I started a public art collective called DDM Connective with brilliant artists Dave McLeod and Dawn Ford. Our first project “Abridged” has been shortlisted as 1 of 3 for the cSpace + King Edward site here in Calgary, Alberta. (We’ll find out any day now if our project was selected for installation!)

AND my most recent blessing…

Our family has agreed to foster a six-month-old baby girl!

It was an emergency situation and therefore unexpected and very short notice. She is the sweetest baby and we love her already! She’s been living with us for several weeks now and is happy and thriving.

It’s amazing to see how someone so little can bring our family even closer together. Everyone is pulling together to help care for her and my daughters, Isabella and Valentina, are thrilled to be “big sisters” for a while!

So, if you haven’t heard from me in a while, you now know why! Please join me in welcoming this sweet little blessing into our lives!

As a token of my gratitude for your continued support AND to celebrate all of life’s blessings – BIG and small – I’m offering for the first time ever

Saje Natural Wellness + Melissa McKinnon Contemporary Art

As some of you may already know, I’ve spent the last several months working with one of my favourite Canadian companies, Saje Natural Wellness.Saje natural wellness, wellness products, organic products, essential oils, oil diffusers, nebulizer, nature art, organic essential oils, do terra oils,

Earlier this year Saje invited me to collaborate with them on an incredible creative project. Using my artwork, we would create a series of limited edition nebulizers that would be for sale in all Saje stores across the country. Our goal would be to raise $20,000 from the proceeds of the project and donate it to an Alberta arts based charity.

Saje commissioned five paintings in total. {See below} We chose a theme of sea and sky, rooted in the natural elements of water and air which are essential to the nebulizer. {The diffusion process turns liquid essential oil and water and diffuses it into the air we breathe.}

I created five full paintings ranging in size from 20”x20” up to 36”x36”. From here we cropped the images to pick and choose which areas of colour and texture we wanted to highlight. Here are some of the final products:

As beautiful as they appear here, we eventually ran into technical difficulties during the manufacturing process. We soon discovered that the unique dip-dye printing process they use to adhere the image to the round nebulizers, wouldn’t allow the vibrant colours and the thick texture of my paint strokes to show up accurately.Colourful Ocean Sky Cloud Sunset Beach painting by Canadian Contemporary Landscape Artist Painter Melissa McKinnon, fine art, sea, seascape, Seascape paintings, ocean,ocean art, beach, beaches, beach art, Ocean paintings, beach paintings, sky paintings, paintings of clouds, sunset paintings, sunrise paintings, sky, clouds, sunset, sunrise, sunset art sunrise, cloudy skies, blue skies, beach photography, ocean photography, art, paintings, Contemporary Art, Landscape Painting, Wall art, interior design, design inspiration, home decor, interior designer, paintings for sale, colourful art, Decor, Interior design ideas, interior design inspiration, Calgary interior designer, interior design Calgary, Home, design, decor inspiration, interior styling, modern home, style, interiors, modern decor, home inspiration, interior decorating, Art In The Home, art, wall art, wall decor, modern art,Calgary artist, Canadian artist, Alberta Landscape Painter, Contemporary Alberta Artist, Alberta Landscape Painting, Calgary paintings, Calgary Fine Art, Calgary, Alberta, Canada, Canadian Rocky Mountains, mountain art, mountain paintings, Banff, Canmore, Lake Louise, sky, prairies, mountain, mountains, lake, river, water, ocean, beach, playa, clouds, original paintings, landscape paintings, oil paintings, acrylic paintings, abstract paintings, abstract landscapes, national geographic landscapes, modern art, contemporary landscape art, nature art, fine art, art, art gallery,contemporary landscape painting, Melissa Mckinnon, Big paintings, large paintings, impasto, thick paint, paintings with texture, palette knife painting, landscape painting commission, Painting Commission, Commission artist painter, custom art, custom painting, Aspen fine art, red art painting, aqua art painting, teal art painting, turquoise art painting, yellow art painting, green art painting, black and white art painting, fuchsia art painting, orange art painting, blue art painting, bright colors, bright painting, colourful painting, colourful, paintings for sale, home decor trends, art gallery,

5th Wedding Anniversary: Wood | A Deserving Wife and Mom Receives a Very Special and Unique Fifth Wedding Anniversary Gift!

Celebrating a 5th Wedding Anniversary: A Unique Gift Idea That Won’t Ever Be Forgotten

Meet Mark and Aynsley.

They’ve been married for five incredible years.

Mark, being the thoughtful and caring husband that he is, wanted to make their 5th Wedding Anniversary spectacular. Mark came up with the genius idea to surprise her with an original painting from my aspen and birch tree collection – the traditional gift for a fifth wedding anniversary is wood after all!

He chose this work of art, “Canadian Autumn 11” a colourful fall aspen tree painting full of vibrant colourful leaves and thick impasto texture. My favourite part of this painting is the little peek of green and gold hidden beneath the peeling tree bark.

I’m so grateful to have the opportunity to celebrate one of life’s incredible milestones with great people like Aynsley and Mark. It’s an honour to paint for people who love and enjoy my paintings as much as I did creating them. Thank you for including me on your 5th Wedding Anniversary!

Here’s what the happy couple had to say:

“Let me tell you, pictures do not do it justice; it’s beautiful! My wife will love it. Thanks again, 

-Mark.”

Nothing compares to the feeling I got on Saturday morning when I read this message that Aynsley posted on social media:

“OMG OMG OMG!! Mark just surprised me with a Melissa McKinnon painting for our anniversary! Holy! Words can not describe the simultaneous shock and joy I felt when he gave it to me. I LOVE her work and have been wanting one for so long. It’s already  a part of our home!
‪#‎beaming‬‪#‎besthusband “‬

Thank you from the bottom of my heart you two! I hope your new painting, “Canadian Autumn 11”  brings you a lifetime of happiness and joy. Every time you look at it, may you remember your beautiful wedding day and every incredible anniversary that follows.

Happy 5th Wedding Anniversary Aynsley and Mark!!

Baby Ayla with her first piece of original art – the start of her collection!

Emily wanted to gift her niece with something meaningful and unique to celebrate her first birthday. As a gifted musician and art lover herself, Emily was drawn to the idea of starting Ayla her very own art collection.

It’s not only a beautiful and original way to decorate her colourful bedroom in a way that will grow with her as she ages but also as an investment in her future. Gone are the days of stuffy savings bonds… collecting original art is the way to go!

Emily loves the bright, vibrant colours in my aspen and birch tree paintings as well as the thick application of paint, two characteristics that Ayla (even at one year old!) can appreciate.

Here is the note I received from Emily along with the photo above:

In 2013, when Southern Alberta including my home city of Calgary, Alberta was devastated by severe floods, I created two paintings titled “Together We Stand” and auctioned them to raise money for the Canadian Red Cross to aid the flood relief effort. It was a huge success and raised significantly more money than I could have ever contributed on my own.
The wildfires in Fort McMurray have affected over 80,000 people and I can’t help but wonder what more can I do?
In addition to a personal donation from my family, I want to raise more money to help more people to make a bigger impact on the lives of others.
 I’m going to donate 25% of ALL painting sales during the month of May directly to the Canadian Red Cross to aid the wild fire survivors of Fort Mac.
