I’m head over heels excited to share my new website with you. As you know, I’ve spent the last several months dreaming, designing, writing and fine tuning every aspect of my new online home. It’s one of the biggest projects I’ve ever accomplished (did I mention, I’m not a tech-y type person?!) But with the help of several incredible people who shared their wisdom and talents with me, I’m proud to announce that my new website and online gallery is *LIVE* and ready for visitors.

Head over to the new and improved www.melissamckinnonart.com and see what all the fuss is about.

I invite you to learn about me and the story of how I became and artist, the inspiration behind my original paintings, and even how to start your own art collection.

Also, be sure to check out the Fine Art Prints page to see my brand new collection of prints on canvas and the Prints With Purpose page to read about the inspiration to use my *art for good* and donate proceeds from the sale of each and every print to a special charity I’m deeply passionate about.

Thank you. It’s because of your support that allows me to live my childhood dream of making beautiful, uplifting art each and every single day and gives me the ability to give back to our community and make life better for those who need it most. ❤️

P.S. As a thank you for supporting my art, right now I’m offering FREE shipping within North America on all Melissa McKinnon Fine Art Prints.

Creatively,

Melissa

SOLD “Kiss the Sky” 36″x36″ Acrylic Painting on Canvas

My painting ‘KISS THE SKY’ will be part of TIMERAISER CALGARY 150 this Thursday, September 28.

Timeraiser is a party and an art auction. Attendees bid against each other to win an original piece of art, but instead of bidding dollars, they bid volunteer hours. You can volunteer at any non-profit organization in Calgary and you have a full year to complete your hours.

Artists are paid for their work, non-profits find skilled volunteers, Calgarians find meaningful volunteer opportunities. #winwinwin

Here’s your chance to own one of my original paintings for $0 and feel good by giving back to our beautiful city with your time.

Join me tomorrow,Thursday, September 28 from 7:30 – 10 pm at Arts Commons and party for social good!

Tickets are only $22, but you can save $5 with code YYC150! Tickets and more info available here:
http://www.timeraiser.ca/calgary

Timeraiser started fourteen years ago with the hopes of bridging several common gaps in the art and volunteer community. Timeraiser parties:

-expose up-and-coming artists to new audiences
-make artwork more accessible to the next generation of art collectors
-connect nonprofits with skilled volunteers.

In 2017, Timeraiser is honoured to be one of thirty-eight Canada 150 signature projects. The Timeraiser 150 festivities span from coast to coast with 10 live parties in 10 provinces and a goal of up to 150,000 pledged volunteer hours across the country. With 9 parties under our belt, Calgary is the GRAND FINALE, and we can’t think of a better place to kick-up our heels and celebrate!

Join us on Thursday, September 28 from 7:30 – 10 pm at Arts Commons and party for social good!

Sled Island Music and Arts Festival is presenting Astral Swans and Bad Portraits artist Mandy Stobo is painting live. There are food trucks, drinks from Steamwhistle and, rumour has it, a cotton candy machine. Some of the amazing artists being featured include Curtis Van Sorenson, Melissa McKinnon, Paula Timm, Cory Nespor and David Dean. Meet with non-profits from the arts, wildlife and animal welfare and access to athletics (the full list can be found on the Timeraiser website).

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.

A beautiful collection of expressive landscape paintings full of light, movement and optimism. The vibrant colours, rich thick textures and expressive brush strokes make each piece unique and unforgettable. So whether you’re drawn to the soft, calming and elegant skyscapes or prefer to explore the great outdoors in a flurry of energetic and expressive colour, my aim is to show you the beauty of Mother Nature in a whole new and exciting way.

I hope you enjoy them as much as I did creating them!

“Dark and Stormy” {Detail Image} 20″x20″ Acrylic Painting on Canvas

Don’t let the calm, soothing, neutral colour palette fool you – this painting is full of energy, and emotion.

I started this painting with soft layers of blended cloud and subtle washes of colour.

Then, much like a storm brewing, my energy started to build and thicker layers of impasto paint were applied. The combination of distinct textured palette knife marks mixed with delicate, swirling brush work heightens the tension and emotion within the painting.

It’s the beautiful dance between ethereal softness and tangible thick texture that I love most in this painting!

“Heat” 36″x48″ Acrylic Painting on Canvas

The two large 36″ x 48″ paintings together make a stunning visual impact!

I love working with interior designers for this exact reason – they aren’t afraid to mix colours, textures and styles of art to make a bold visual statement.

This house is sophisticated and elegantly decorated in neutral greys and soft whites – but it is far from being drab and boring! Unique accessories and colourful contemporary artwork throughout the home add style and personality.

“Heat” 36″x48″ (Detail Image) Acrylic Painting on Canvas

The main feature in this home is the open concept kitchen and dining room (you’ll have to take my word on this – it’s huge and stunning – grand elegance personified!)

The home owners wanted a large work of art to hang as a focal point in the open concept room. They chose to commission this custom landscape painting.

The beautiful thing about commissioning a work of art is that you are able to work closely with me to establish the perfect size of painting to suit your space, incorporate meaningful subjects (in this landscape, it was the Alberta prairies and Rocky Mountains), as well as fine tune the colour palette.

This painting incorporates a variety of neutral grey tones while adding subtle touches of colour and texture throughout the sky, Rocky Mountains and prairie landscape.

They are still adding the finishing touches to the home decor but once the project is complete and professionally photographed, I will be sure to post photos of all four paintings in their newly designed home!

“Passion” 60″x60” Acrylic Painting on Canvas

This painting was commissioned by local Calgary, Alberta, interior designer extraordinaire Monika S to celebrate her 29th wedding anniversary and she wanted it to be big, bold and beautiful! Monika has a passion for colour and creativity that she exudes in her life and through her work and she wanted this painting to be an expression of those qualities.

Monika first sent me this photo and explained that she has an open concept home and would like the artwork to be the focal point of the main living space. We decided on a 5ft x 5ft / 60″ x 60″ canvas to fill the space above her dining room hutch.

Design Tip: Big artwork makes a BIG statement in any room. Find a large painting you LOVE and it will turn the room from drab to fab, instantly!

The Before Shot

She loved the colours and concept of one of my previous paintings “Lust” and wanted to use it as an inspiration for her custom painting.

Design Tip: Art doesn’t have to match your home! Choose artwork that you LOVE and allow the art to inspire your decor.

Fantastic works of art are likely going to be one of the biggest investments you will make in your home decor so you should connect with it in a big way, it should make you feel something, be an inspiration to you… after all you are going to be living with it for many, many years to come.

Choose art that you LOVE and NOT just because it matches your sofa!

(You can always buy a new sofa!)

And that’s just what Monika did! She changed a few things in her space that would really make the painting stand out, including moving some furniture around and painting an accent wall and island base to compliment the bold and vibrant colours in the painting.

Art doesn’t have to match your home! Instead, allow your artwork to inspire the design of your home.

While Monika was painting…so was I!

Painting In Progress – It all begins with an inspiration and a sketch!
“Passion” 60″x60” Acrylic Painting on Canvas

“Purple  – ‘Passion’ – is the ultimate expression of a creative person’s world. This painting, with its myriad shades of purple and red hues nourishes and inspires the soul. I often  like to pay a game with friends  by having them guess how many paint swatches went into the piece. ”  —Monika.S.

Painting In Progress – Over 4000 “marks” were applied to create this piece!
“Passion” 60″x60” Acrylic Painting on Canvas

After several weeks of painting and over 4000 “marks” later, I happily delivered and installed Monika’s painting, “Passion” in her freshly painted home. It really changes the entire feel of the space – the large size and vibrant colours add vitality, energy and warmth to her home. Most importantly it expresses Monika’s personality and passion for life.

“Passion” 60″x60” Acrylic Painting on Canvas Installed in Collector’s Home

One special request that Monika had was to incorporate two hearts into the painting to symbolize her and her husband and celebrate their 29th wedding anniversary. They are small and subtle (see if you can spot them!) and it makes this custom painting all the more special to them!

NEW Abstract Series of Paintings by Canadian Contemporary Artist Melissa McKinnon Now Available!

My NEW Series of Abstract Paintings are now available to add to your collection!

This series is an expression of my LOVE of vibrant colour and thick painted textures.

After years of exploring this mark making technique with my aspen and birch tree series, I became curious to see what would happen if I took away the subject matter and just focused on colour and composition.

This series is very liberating for me as an artist. I love being able to play with paint and have fun with colour. The paintings that evolved are charged with energy and emotion. From the hot vibrancy and passion of “Lust” to the cool calmness of “Surfacing” each painting has it’s own story to tell.

You will also notice that all of the paintings in this series have one word titles. They are meant to give you a reference as to what I was feeling when creating the work. They act as a starting point to view the paintings but I encourage you to experience them from your own point of view and allow your own experiences to interpret the work.

How do they make you feel? Which one are you drawn to the most?

Leave a comment below and tell me what you think of this new series, I’d love to know!

SOLD! “High Water – Study” An Abstract River Landscape Painting by Contemporary Alberta Artist Melissa McKinnon

SOLD! “High Water Study” 12″x12″

My painting of the Bow River, “High Water – Study” was inspired by the severe floods that devastated much of Calgary and Southern Alberta in June 2013. As a born and raised Calgarian, it was heart breaking to experience the devastation of the flooding that overtook our beautiful city. I witnessed the flood first hand and I was awestruck by the erosion of boundaries between water and land and that is what I aimed to express in this painting.

“High Water – Study” 12×12 Original Acrylic River Landscape Painting on Canvas by Calgary Artist Melissa McKinnon

“High Water” is very personal to me and I am honoured that it has found a new home with fellow artist and new friend K. Anna Stoneburgh.

“I’m so glad you’re willing to part with this piece. It is tough to let favourites go, and I imagine in light of last summer’s flooding it’s likely an even more emotionally charged piece. And I’m honoured to be able to be its new owner, I’ll display it proudly. :)” -Anna

We both have a love of vibrant colour and thick texture. Click HERE to see some of her artwork.

Me and my newest collector!
“High Water” 20×20 Original Acrylic Landscape Painting on Canvas by Calgary Artist Melissa McKinnon

Of the 75 works of art available, only 25 were purchased last night. Thank you to my newest collectors for selecting my painting to add to their personal collection. It was wonderful to spend some time getting to know Kristi-Lee and her husband. They drove all the way from Lethbridge in a blizzard just so they could support artRISE and our local art community. My painting “High Water” will be the second original work of art in their collection.

If you are interested in purchasing one of the remaining works of art, they will be available HERE  until December 20th through the Art Gallery of Calgary.

The study for “High Water” is now available for purchase. This is a smaller version of the painting above with a slightly different colour palette.

CHARITY ART AUCTION

100% of the proceeds will be donated to the Canadian Red Cross

I am happy to announce that I am auctioning one of my original fine art paintings in effort to raise awareness and financial aid for the Canadian Red Cross in support of the Southern Alberta Flood Relief 2013.

I created these two paintings as a response to the flood devastation. I want to remind Albertans of how beautiful and inspirational our Province is. These paintings are a representation of the ever-changing beauty of our Alberta landscape as well as the resiliency that we as a people are known for. The paintings are titled ”Together We Stand” because even throughout this time of crisis Albertans have come together through countless hours of volunteerism, personal sacrifice and an unwavering positive spirit.

This is a tangible way for you to get involved and support the many people in our communities that need our help.

Why me, why now?

I am a Calgary girl and my roots run deep with love for this city. It’s heartbreaking to see our city and surrounding areas devastated by the horrific floods. Over 100,000 people were evacuated and many of them suffered damage and loss of their homes and personal belongings. By sharing my art, this is one way that I can help and this is a fantastic opportunity for you to help too!

Please pass this post along, share it via social media and shout it from the rooftops! The more people who see this post, the more money we can raise!!! (Use the social media buttons at the bottom of this post to share on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, Google +1, Email, etc.)

This is the most abstract and conceptual painting in my Aspen / Birch Tree Series. My husband doesn’t “get” it, but I love it. I am absolutely in love with it.

How To Order a Custom Painting – Commission an Original Painting from Canadian Artist Melissa McKinnon

How To Order a Custom Painting

Have you ever wanted a painting created just for you, in the size that fits your home perfectly?
Do you like the style of my paintings and would like to have a painting similar but with the colors that suit your home décor?
Do you have a special memory or a photograph that you would like turned into an artistic work of art?

I am now accepting orders for new custom paintings in 2013.

Ordering a custom painting from Melissa McKinnon couldn’t be easier!

I will work with you throughout the entire process and guarantee your satisfaction completely. Best of all, there are no additional fees for this service! Pricing is based on the size of the painting and approximately how much time it will take to complete, just like all of my non-commissioned works of art. I am happy to work creatively with you and your budget to create a custom, one-of-a-kind painting just for you!

I am very easy to work with throughout the creative process, from helping you choose a size, color palette, and subject matter all the way through to delivering/shipping your finished painting with the utmost care.

I am happy to work with you to create the painting of your dreams! I can paint any subject matter, any size and work with any colors that you wish. I am also very open to suggestions and feedback from my art collectors – this is a two-way partnership. In turn, I will always be open and honest with you, offering my artistic point of view and drawing on my experience as a painter to help you to turn your vision into a beautiful work of art. Even if you don’t know exactly what you want I am happy to work with you to find your inspiration, be it a color, a mood, a feeling, or a cherished photograph that you may have. Together we can turn your inspiration into a beautiful painting that you will cherish forever.

3 Steps to Order Your Custom Painting

1. Decide on the size of your new painting:

Do you have a particular space where you’d like to hang your new painting? Does that space call for a horizontal or a vertical painting? I recommend using a measuring tape to determine the size of your space and then leave a minimum of 6”-1’ around all sides. This is a general rule of thumb and sometimes rules were made to be broken. If you have any questions or would like my input to help determine the size of painting that best suits your space, I am happy to help! There is no painting too big or too small.

Although pricing is mainly determined by the size of your painting, I am very flexible and I can work with any budget. Just send me a note with your ideal size and the budget that you are working with and we can go from there.

2. Find your inspiration for subject matter:

I am currently working on a series of Aspen / Birch trees but I love to paint ALL subjects including landscapes, people portraits, and abstracts.

Here are some ideas to get you started:

-Browse my gallery of current paintings for inspiration, pick and choose elements and colors that you like and we will work together to create a unique original just for you.

-Do you have a photograph, a memory, or a special place that you love to visit? I can use any of these things as inspiration for your custom painting. If you have ideas that you’d like to discuss, send me an email, I’m happy to combine different elements into one custom painting.

3. Approve your custom painting:

Once we have decided on a size, subject and color palette, I can start painting!

It can take anywhere from 4-6 weeks to create your custom painting. Once complete, I will send you a photograph of your finished painting for approval. At this point we can make any minor adjustments before your new painting is professionally packaged and shipped with the utmost care.

It’s that easy!

If this is something that you have ever dreamed of doing for yourself or as a gift for someone else, contact me HERE or call me directly 403-808-8825. I look forward to working with you to create the painting that you have always dreamed of!

Sincerely,

Melissa McKinnon

“My Dream For You” 36×48 Original Abstract Acrylic Aspen / Birch Tree Painting on Canvas by Canadian Artist Melissa McKinnon

My Dream For You

This is the most abstract and conceptual painting in my Aspen / Birch Tree Series. My husband doesn’t “get” it, but I love it. I am absolutely in love with it. This painting is very personal for me not only because of the process that I went through to create it but also because it represents everything wonderful that I could ever dream and wish for my girls.

~

My Dearest, Isabella and Valentina,

As your parent, I want the very best life experience for you. So much so that it hurts when I think about the possibility of any hardships that you might encounter.

This is my dream for you:

I want you to know love. To love and be loved. Deeply. To love yourself and all those who are lucky enough to share their lives with you.

I want you to dream BIG. I have always believed that anything you want for your life is possible, work hard to make your dreams come true and they will. I want you to believe in yourselves, to have the confidence to take chances, on life, on love, on yourselves.

I want you to love what you do, to discover and cultivate your passion. Never give up on your dreams. You deserve to be happy.

This painting is for you. It represents my dream for you – that one day all of your dreams will come true. When you look at it I want you to see a bright and welcoming world with endless possibilities.

I want you to live in a world where forests are painted with colors that inspire you,

a world where trees become leaves

and leaves become birds

and those birds are you,

free to fly wherever your heart takes you.

I love you.

Love always and forever,

Your Mom

Trying to express all of my hopes and dreams for my children visually in a painting has been my biggest challenge yet as an artist. There were many times when I felt frustrated, I felt the painting wasn’t working – I wanted to walk away.

I wanted this painting to be beautiful.

Magical.

Inspirational.

And if it couldn’t be those things, I didn’t want to do it. The entire process of creating this piece was a challenge. In the end, I released my insatiable desire for perfection and allowed my heart to lead, instead of my mind.

This is the outcome and I love it. It represents all of the qualities that I want to instill in my girls… as well as myself.

When something is challenging, don’t give up. Persevere and eventually you will achieve your goals.

If you are passionate about something, don’t sacrifice it for anything.

In life, do what makes you happy.

I hope you enjoy this painting as much as I do.

”Splendor” Abstract Flowers – Original Mixed Media Floral Painting by Canadian Artist Melissa McKinnon

”Splendor” 11x14 Abstract Flowers - Original Mixed Media Floral Painting on archival paper

”Splendor” 11×14 Abstract Flowers – Original Mixed Media Floral Painting on archival paper

Stuck in a rut? Paint something totally different and wildly fun, like an abstract flower painting!

As a wife and mother of two little ones it’s an amazing gift when I can carve out enough time to paint every day for a long stretch, however sometimes I feel that my painting can become tight and too controlled. When this happens I find that taking a break to create something totally different and just for fun is the exact thing I need to return to my original painting with carefree abandon and fresh eyes. Here is my latest creation, painted with ink, salt, and acrylic paint.
