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.

“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.

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.

“Where the Light Lingers” (Detail) 48″x60″ Acrylic Painting on Canvas

My goal when painting is to create a picture that is beautiful, bold and interesting enough from afar that it entices the viewer to move in and investigate the painting up close and personal. It’s in the details where the magic happens.

The surface of my paintings are so thickly textured that the landscape can be felt through touch as well as seen. The smooth shiny areas of tree bark contrasts with areas of thick, rough, papery layers creating a very realistic sensory experience.

“Where the Light Lingers” (Detail) 48″x60″ Acrylic Painting on Canvas

I encourage you to get up close and immerse yourself in the forest of colour, pattern and texture.

As the title “Where the Light Lingers” suggests, here you can see how the sunlight grazes across the surface of the sculpted leaves creating areas of shimmery light and shadow.

As the quality of light changes throughout the day, so does the mood and atmosphere of the painting, it’s really quite beautiful!

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 Artwork! Colourful Acrylic Painting of Fall Aspen and Birch Trees By Contemporary Landscape Painter Melissa McKinnon

A New Colourful Acrylic Painting of Aspen and Birch Trees In the Fall ~ Now Available!

I’m insatiably inspired by the vibrant colours and thick lush textures found in nature. You can see it in each and every painting I create.

There are so many layers and shades of colour throughout this painting – from deep, velvety indigo blue to bright lime green and chartreuse – all the way through the colour spectrum to vibrant, passionate red, lush orange and joyful yellow!

This painting has it all (literally, all the colours)!

Using such a wide range of colours allows me to create a wonderful depth in the forest and throughout the leafy foliage.

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…

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.

Layers and layers of thick textured leaves.

The 3-dimensional nature of the painted leaves catch the light in the most beautiful way. As the quality of light changes throughout the day, so will the atmosphere in the painting.

Bathed in bright afternoon sun, the forest appears to have been painted on a warm autumn day, radiating vibrant, golden colours.

In the evening, lit only by indoor house lights, the painting transforms into a study of the forest at night, colours are softer, shadows are darker and the painting has a quiet, calming atmosphere.

“A Vivid Memory” (Detail Image) 36″x36″ Acrylic Painting on Canvas

What’s better than owning an original work of art?

Owning a pair!

Meet “When We were Young” two paintings, each 12″x24″.

Did you know that a pair of two paintings is called a diptych? {Pronunced dip-tik}

A diptych can be hung together as intended, or separately – each painting is designed to look beautiful on their own or together as a pair to make one larger work of art.
