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.

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. Since I’m already a huge believer in giving back to my community, I knew this partnership would be a perfect fit.Saje natural wellness, wellness products, organic products, essential oils, oil diffusers, nebulizer, nature art, organic essential oils, do terra oils,Landscape Painting, sky painting art, cloudy sky, cloud painting art, sea, seascape,Seascape paintings, ocean,ocean art, ocean sea painting, beach, beaches, beach art, Ocean paintings, beach paintings, sky paintings, paintings of clouds, sunset paintings, sunrise paintings, sky, clouds, cloudy sky, blue skies, sunset, sunrise, art,abstract landscape art; abstract landscape painting; prairie painting; prairies; Canadian Prairies; prairie fields; oil painting, acrylic painting, beautiful landscape, western art; western painting; Contemporary Art, Wall art, interior design, design inspiration, home decor, interior designer, Calgary artist; Canadian artist; American art, american artist, Canadian art,Melissa McKinnon, Alberta Landscape Painter; Contemporary Artist; Alberta Landscape Painting; Calgary paintings, Calgary Fine Art; Calgary; Alberta; Canada; Calgary art gallery, Alberta artist, Alberta painting, custom painting; commission painting, commission artist, abstract art, abstract artist, modern art, acrylic Paintings, oil paintings, Abstract paintings, paintings with texture, abstract art, wall art, wall decor, contemporary landscape painting, contemporary landscape artist, Contemporary painting, colourful painting, paintings for sale, 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, Nature lover, nature, interior design, design inspiration, home decor, interior designer, art, landscape paintings; lake; river; water;

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, 

After months of work and dozens… and dozens of attempts later we are now looking into the possibility of using water colour images instead. Stay tuned and I’ll keep you posted on our progress!

In the meantime, these five beautiful paintings are varnished and ready to go to new homes.

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!!

A Personal Look Into My Creative Process and Inspiration for Two New Aspen and Birch Tree Paintings – From Contemporary Landscape Artist Melissa McKinnon

New Paintings and a Personal Look Into My Creative Process and Inspiration

I don’t normally share much about the inspiration behind each of my paintings; I want the viewer to have their own personal connection with my art, allowing the paintings to speak for themselves.

That being said, these paintings have become very special to me and symbolic of how I want to live my life and the impact I wish for my art to have on others. To give you a glimpse into my thoughts, and the process that I go through in my studio when I’m not painting, I’ve taken an excerpt from my sketchbook writing and I’ve expanded upon it below. Feel free to leave a comment and share your thoughts with me, I’d love hear your response. As always, I hope my art brings you happiness and joy!

If you’d like to skip the chatter below, feel free to dive deep into the paintings right away.

Paintings in progress – “With Wild Abandon” and “Love Is Love”

June was a busy month, full of year end school activities with my daughters and finishing my studio works in progress in preparation for our new summer schedule.

June was also a time of unrest in many parts of the world. War, terror attacks, mass shootings, the list goes on. In a time of uncertainty, divisiveness, and constant change in the world, it’s more important than ever to seek moments of peace and positivity in our lives. As humans sharing this great big planet we call home, we are all connected, regardless of age, race, gender or religion. When others are suffering, we are all affected.

I was in the studio painting when I first heard about the mass shooting at Pulse night club in Orlando, Florida. It stopped me cold in my tracks.  I was overcome with sadness, worry and a deep feeling of helplessness. Another mass shooting…another horrific senseless tragedy…more precious lives lost. It’s challenging, to say the least, to keep moving forward and to stay positive and optimistic in the wake of such tragedy.

For me, creating art is my way of making sense of the world. In times of darkness or sadness, I can go into the studio and lose myself in the paint. The sheer act of creating brings me joy. Often it’s less about the end product and more about the the journey of the creative process to find that source of joy and uplifting positive energy.

I’ve learned that looking at art and experiencing it first hand has the ability to change ones emotional state in the same way it does while creating it. I’ve witnessed people brought to tears while standing in front of a painting, myself included. Art has the ability to connect people and to change people.

My aim is to create works of art that connect with people. Paintings that are full of life and positive energy, that uplift and inspire. The greatest compliment I could ever receive as an artist is that one of my paintings made someone happy just by looking at it. How powerful is that?! I think we could all use more positive experiences like this in our lives.

“Melissa, we received our painting today and it’s gorgeous, even more beautiful than we saw online. The colours are so bright and cheerful, it makes me happy every time I look at it. Your painting has brought such joy to our home. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts.” A+G

That brings me to latest creations and how they’ve become a metaphor for life…

Originally started over a year ago, these particular canvases were soon left behind only half finished, as my attention was devoted to commissioned pieces and managing the deadlines of a busy studio.

“Love Is Love” Painting in progress – the ‘before’.

Fast forward to June 2016, when I rediscovered the paintings.  They were dark, dull and lifeless. I no longer felt a connection to them and that wasn’t the message I wanted to send out into the world.

Hearing the news of yet another mass attack on innocent people was heartbreaking. Like many others, I felt overwhelmed and full of sadness for the world. The ray of light that day was the incredible amount of love and support that was shown from people all over the world standing in solidarity with the victims and their families. People not afraid to voice their opinion and stand up for those they love. Because love is love. The one thing we all need more of in this world, is love.

With that as my inspiration and driving force I completed the paintings, giving them new life. I put everything I had that day into these pieces.They have been completely transformed, from dull and dark to gloriously brilliant and full of unabashed colour. You can still see bits and pieces of the dark underneath but they now stand tall and proud, offering a bright beacon of light where once there was only only darkness.

Love is in the air!

So, I have to share this with you…! This is a close up detail of one of the paint strokes in “With Wild Abandon”. 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. 

Do you see the heart?

It was completely a serendipitous ‘happy accident’ but once I saw it I had to leave it! It’s become a symbol of everything these paintings and my work as a whole, stands for.

With that, I’m pleased to present the two newest paintings in my aspen and birch tree collection, “Wild With Abandon” and “Love is Love”. May they fill your heart with happiness and joy.

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.

“Misty Morning” 48″x36″ Acrylic Painting on Canvas
$3050

This piece is (temporarily) hanging in my living room… and it’s wonderful!

Why so wonderful?

Because it’s so calming and peaceful to look at. 

(Previously, we had a selection of bright, colourful birch tree paintings which were lively and energetic however they have since sold and now…)

This piece has turned my living room into a tranquil haven (with the help of a few new throw pillows and some strategically placed candles). It’s now a place where I can sit in peace with a glass of wine and a good book or engage in stimulating conversation with friends (no loud tv’s, no lego to step on, no distractions!). 

I can’t help but slow down to enjoy it every time I enter the room.

It’s transformed the space completely.

“Misty Morning” {Detail} 48″x36″ Acrylic Painting on Canvas

As much as I love using vibrant, bold colours in my artwork, I absolutely love the soft, subtle colour palette in this painting.

The warm shades of green with a hint a turquoise is both calming and serene.

I’ve also mixed in a bit of gold mica pigment into some of the leafy colours to add a soft shimmer. It’s a very subtle effect but I think it adds to the mysterious quality of the forest.

The light catches on the textured surface and creates a very realistic three dimensional effect.

NEW! Three Seascape Ocean and Beach Paintings by Contemporary Abstract Landscape Artist Melissa McKinnon

This new series of ‘seaside’ paintings is inspired by my recent travels along the coast of Nova Scotia, Canada.

If you haven’t been, let me tell you, the Canadian east coast is so beautiful and inspiring! Keep reading and see why and how it captured my attention…

$750

Nova Scotia is known for its hospitality, lively culture and breathtaking scenery.

It’s a diverse province with stunning geography and vivid colours, a perfect source of inspiration for my paintings! In this series, I’m focusing my attention on the rugged ocean shoreline and the calm serene lakes that captured my heart.

 I would spend hours wandering, stumbling and exploring this rugged coastline along the sea. Hand in hand with my two daughters, we walked and searched for seashells, sea creatures and other sea ‘treasures’, amazed by all we discovered – I felt like a kid again!

The power and intensity of the ocean is unbelievable to an Alberta prairie girl like me. Add in the constantly changing and sometimes volatile weather, I found the whole experience to be rather overwhelming at times.

Feeling humbled by the experience, I stopped and sat staring off into the horizon, completely mesmerized.

Sketchbook in hand, I began to draw.
