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

“Spring Fling” 48″x48″ Acrylic Painting on Canvas

Beautiful white flower painting and floral art by contemporary landscape artist Melissa McKinnon

Sitting on a swing with my Grandma in her flower garden on a warm spring afternoon sipping a delicious cup of tea (like the true British lady she was) – that’s the memory that comes to mind when I look at this painting. We’d sit for hours together engaged in conversation, watching the birds and squirrels come and go, enjoying the beautiful scenery of her lush garden overflowing with fresh, fragrant blooms…

This is the power of great art – it has the ability to inspire, to evoke emotion, and bring to life a favourite memory from the past.

“Spring Fling” {detail} 48″x48″ Acrylic Painting on Canvas

This floral painting was created using a combination of large brushes and palette knives {my favourite tools of the trade}. I used them to sculpt paint onto the canvas creating a lifelike three dimensional texture of delicate, soft petals and crisp leafy foliage. The added impasto texture brings this painting to life as the sunlight cascades across the surface of the painting highlighting all of the intricate details throughout.

This painting (along with a colourful aspen and birch tree landscape) was originally commissioned by the City of Calgary as a public art installation for the YYC Utility Box Program. The original paintings are available for purchase. 

These colourful works of art will be reproduced as a vinyl wraps to cover the utility boxes in the community of Queensland, in Calgary, Alberta, Canada.

“From Here I Can Go Anywhere” 48″x36” Acrylic Painting on Canvas (Detail Image of Painted Sides)
Painted image wraps around the sides of canvas, so your new painting is ready to hang. No framing needed.

When I met with the residents of Queensland to discuss what their community means to them and what qualities they would like to see expressed artistically – some of the most common responses were optimism, nature, bright colour, and “the gorgeous sunsets”!

This painting is my way of expressing all of these beautiful qualities.

The sunrises and sunsets that we see in Calgary are incredibly stunning. The sky is so big and full of colour that it often feels like you are engulfed inside of it. I can’t help but stand in awe of the beautiful, rapidly changing shapes and colours. It’s breathtaking.

There are magical moments hiding in every painting, you just have to explore and find them.

In this painting, the spontaneous burst of pink emerging from behind the cluster of clouds is my favourite magical moment of the entire piece. It could be a painting all on it’s own.

“Remember Me” Poppy Field Series – Acrylic Paintings

"Field of Red" Poppy Field - Acrylic Painting on Board $395

“Field of Red” Poppy Field – Acrylic Painting on Board $395

This time of year is important for so many reasons. Tomorrow is Remembrance Day here in Canada (Veterans Day in The USA) and it is a significant day for our family to remember and give thanks to all who fought for our freedom.

Both of my Grandparents as well as my husband’s Grandfather fought and survived WWII. His great uncle James McKinnon fought on the beaches of Normandy, was captured by the German forces and was later executed.

Our family has a lot of people and many sacrifices to remember. When I was younger, Remembrance Day / Veterans day didn’t have such a significant meaning to me as it does today, but now that I have children of my own, I have a better understanding of the gravity of war. I want to impart a sense of soberness and ultimately ensure our family has a tremendous amount of gratitude for all of our brave veterans.

As I was thinking about the significance of Remembrance Day I felt the need to express all of my emotions through paint.

What began as one painting soon grew into five.

 Like all flowers, the poppy is a symbol of life and resilience. Every winter, particularly here in Canada, the flowers are beaten down by the elements but every spring they come back in full bloom bigger and stronger than the year before. Its this persistence, resilience  and hunger for life that I wanted to capture in these paintings.

Between the crosses, row on row,

The larks, still bravely singing, fly

Scarce heard amid the guns below.”

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

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.

“In Flanders fields the poppies blow

Between the crosses, row on row,
That mark our place; and in the sky
   
The larks, still bravely singing, fly

Scarce heard amid the guns below.”
