Shop original paintings and fine art prints on canvas by contemporary artist Melissa McKinnon new website

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

“With Wild Abandon” {Detail} 48″x36″ Acrylic Painting on Canvas

This is a close up detail of one of the paint strokes in “With Wild Abandon”.

Do you see the heart?

It was completely a serendipitous ‘happy accident’ but once I saw it I had to leave it in the painting. It’s become a symbol of everything this painting and my work as a whole, stands for – optimism, joy and seeing the beauty in everyday moments.

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.

Seasons Greetings!

I just returned from a spectacular painting trip in Hawaii with my family (more on that later). Long story short, it was beautiful, inspirational and full of new, awe-inspiring adventures. A new painting series is sure to follow.

But for now, it’s back to the studio and *real life*…

If you’re anything like me, the holiday season tends to sneak up on you. As an entrepreneur and busy Mom of two young girls, I always feel like I’m catching up, running from one thing to the next. One minute we’re celebrating ‘back to school’ and the next we’re putting up the Christmas tree, baking gingerbread cookies and shopping for the *perfect* gifts. Where does the time go?!

For me, all the hustle and bustle is worth it to see the look on my girls’ faces first thing Christmas morning once they’ve seen all the new goodies (and art supplies!) that Santa has left for them (and me!).

As a child, Christmas Day was always so busy travelling in the car to visit one side of our family, then the next. So now as an adult, my absolute favourite thing to do is spend the entire day as a family, at home, in our pyjamas, playing games and making crafts together. Then, when it’s time for Christmas dinner, we love to host our extended family at our house and we celebrate well into the night.

I know everyone has their own special way of celebrating the holidays, what are some of your favourite family traditions? Just hit reply, I’d love to know.

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.

“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!

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!!

Colourful Autumn Aspen and Birch Tree Forest Painting by Abstract Landscape Painter Melissa McKinnon

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.

Using bright vibrant colours and loads of thick sculptural texture, I draw the viewer into the paintings where they are free to explore the landscape up close and personal.

“Love Is Love” 36”x48” {Detail} Acrylic Painting on Canvas

The contrasting colours and intricate blends are what make these paintings so unique. Each stroke is created using a palette knife loaded with a selection of colours. As I apply the paint to the canvas, the colours mix together creating spontaneous and often surprising patterns of glorious colour. Each one is different and could never be duplicated – they are truly one of a kind!

“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!

Colourful Aspen and Birch Tree Forest Painting by Canadian Abstract Landscape Painter Melissa McKinnon

Not an ordinary day indeed! Full of vibrant fall colours and thick layers of textured leaves, this painting is anything but ordinary. Inspired by the richness and beauty of the Canadian wilderness as it transitions from summer into autumn, my favourite time of year.

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.

$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.

“Spring Garden I” 12″x12″ Acrylic Painting on Canvas

Thoughtfully chosen, generously given.

This painting was purchased as a gift for an incredibly strong, beautiful and resilient woman whom I’ve never met but have heard a lot about. Enough to admire, respect and care for her.

A daughter, mother, sister and a dear friend to many.

Currently battling stage 4 cancer, she is defying all odds and surpassing everyone’s expectations.

Every day is a gift.

This painting will soon be on it’s way to Ottawa, Ontario, Canada to bring love, support and encouragement to one very special lady and her family.

My greatest wish is that it brings you happiness, strength and peace.

Most of all, when you look at this painting, I hope you feel all of the love that surrounds you. One thing I know for sure, the person sending it to you loves you more than his words can say.

$2495

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.

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.

Honoured To Be An Inspiration: My Tree Paintings Interpreted By 8-9 Year Old Students Half-way Around the World In Canterbury, England

This morning I received the most beautiful letter that made my heart soar!

I’ve had classes research my work and use my paintings as inspiration for various projects in the past but I just had to share this one! The sheer volume of work, attention to detail and the depth of exploration and experimentation with materials is phenomenal – AND these artists are only 8 and 9 years old!!!

Aren’t these kids amazing!?!

I also want to acknowledge and thank Miss Apps for choosing my work as an inspiration. (It’s not every day that I get chosen over Monet and Picasso!) Her students are very lucky to have such a dedicated teacher who is passionate about the arts and who encourages her students to express themselves creatively. That is the greatest gift! Cheers to you, Miss Apps!

A mixed media piece.

A mixed media piece.

A letter from Miss Apps:

“My name is Roxanne Apps and I am a primary school teacher in Canterbury, Kent (England) and I teach a class of 30 8-9 year olds. For the last 2 weeks we have had what we call ‘Arts Week’ in our school, where each class is required to pick an artist and base all of their work around that one artist for 2 weeks. 

Most classes pick a classic artist such as Monet or Picasso but this year I decided to choose a contemporary artist for a change. I browsed the internet with my class for a creative contemporary artist with a set ‘theme’ that could inspire our work. We stumbled upon your website and instantly fell in love with your paintings (in fact I have become a bit obsessed!). We immediately decided to choose you as our inspiration.

We quickly set about gathering ideas for how we could recreate and interpret your work in our own individual ways. We made oil pastel pictures with black backgrounds and chalk birch trees, we made finger painted leaves with newspaper trees and we also wrote poems about how the colours of the trees make us feel or what they remind us of. There were many other things but it is too much to list! Our favourite piece of all was our joint class canvas. We used thick paints and glue sticks to create the leaves and used masking tape to create the outline of the trees before we scraped card dipped in black paint across to create the effect of the bark on the birch trees. Each child had a go at adding on the layers of leaves and we think you will agree that the finished result looks pretty amazing! 

At the end of the 2 weeks all the children and teachers worked hard to display our work in an exhibition in the school hall. Parents and members of the public were welcomed to come and peruse our artwork and also to buy some of it. The exhibition is still going and all of the money raised will go to a local charity that supports young adults with Downs Syndrome. 

Hundreds of people have turned up over the last few days to look at our beautiful exhibition and many commented on how lovely the work turned out. People were especially intrigued to hear about your work and commented on how stunning your paintings were! It was a nice change from all of the classic artists which surrounded us in the school exhibition. My class’ work sold like hot cakes and I believe this is because they were so passionate about your work that this was reflected in their beautiful pictures. 

I hope you are pleased to know that you have inspired little people who live thousands of miles away (and their teacher!) with your absolutely gorgeous paintings! The class are aware that I am writing to you and would love to hear a comment back from you if you have the time. 

I have copied and pasted some pictures of our hard work and also of the exhibition to show you what you have inspired us to create! 

I hope you enjoy looking through them!

Yours,

Roxanne Apps (Miss Apps)
Teacher and English Coordinator
Wincheap Primary School

My Response Letter To the Class:

Dear Miss Apps and the very creative and hard working students of Wincheap Primary School,

Thank you so much for choosing my paintings to inspire you during Art Week.

I am SO proud of all you!

The paintings you created are so beautiful and creative. I love how you used different materials to create variations of your tree paintings, each one is unique and in your own style. I especially loved reading the poems that you wrote to accompany your paintings, beautifully done.

You must have worked very hard to create all of those works of art and I commend you for it! Above all, I hope that you had fun while doing it!

Making art is not about being born with talent, it is about being happy while you create. It’s about being dedicated and passionate about what you create. It’s about making art even if others (or yourself!) tell you it’s not worth it or it’s not good enough. Not everyone has to like what you create. Do what makes you happy and share it with the world, you never know who might see what you create and be inspired by it! 😉 (Like a class full of young artists from halfway around the world!)

Whatever you do, don’t stop creating!

I heard that your art exhibition was a huge success, congratulations! If you have any paintings left for sale, I would love to purchase one for my studio.

I also love that you are donating all of the proceeds to charity. I am a big believer in giving back to your community and I donate artwork to various charity fundraisers throughout the year. It’s a wonderful way to use your passion for art to help others.

Thank you again for sharing your beautiful artwork and poetry with me. I can’t tell you how happy it made me.

I wish all the best and please keep in touch. I’d love to see what you create next!

Creatively yours,

Melissa McKinnon

9 Reasons To Buy A Painting – A Fantastic Article From Houzz

Why Buy An Original Painting vs. Prints?
Here are 9 Fantastic Reasons From Houzz That Will Change the Way You Buy Art

There’s no doubt that buying prints and posters is fun (and affordable) — but there’s a lot to be said for saving up for a piece of one-of-a-kind art. If you’ve been sticking with framed prints, let these 10 reasons tempt you into your neighborhood gallery to peruse the paintings instead.

1. Buying a painting supports the artist directly. Painters pour their hearts into their work, and it can be difficult to make ends meet in such a labor-intensive and competitive field. Enrich your home and feel good knowing your purchase is helping to support a local artist by shopping at local galleries.

2. Paintings are tactile. A print’s surface can never match the luscious textural variations of a painting. Whether done on canvas, wood or mottled watercolor paper, original paintings have a touchable quality that sets them apart.

3. Paintings are perfect for renters. If you rent, it can be difficult to personalize your space when you’re not allowed to paint the walls or make certain other changes. But hang a painting or two, and the space instantly feels more you. And unlike bulky pieces of furniture, a painting will fit in any home you live in, making it a wiser investment if you move frequently.

4. Paintings are one of a kind.There’s something satisfying about having a piece of unique artwork in your home.

5. Paintings are handmade. Like handmade knits, hand-thrown pottery and handcrafted furniture, paintings show the hand of their maker. This quality brings richness and personality to the home — factory-made furniture and slickly printed posters simply cannot compete.

6. A painting can make the room. A painting begs to be the focal point of a room. Whether your artistic taste runs to the bold and graphic or to vintage landscapes, the painting you choose is bound to have a big impact on your space — I can’t think of another thing that has such an ability to bring that wow factor to a room.

7. Paintings make a house feel like home. Paintings you’ve owned for a while become like old friends. Simply pulling out your paintings and putting them up can make any space, no matter where you are, feel like home — even more so if you happen to have paintings handed down to you from your parents or grandparents.

8. Paintings inspire. Looking at a painting you love refreshes your spirit. Why not give yourself the gift of daily inspiration by saving up for a small painting you adore?

9. Curating your own art gallery is fun! Will you find yourself drawn to pastels, portraits, still lifes or landscapes? Representative art or abstract? Choosing paintings helps hone your personal aesthetic. And let’s face it, being the curator of your own personal art gallery is a really fun job.

NEW Painting! “Summer Came and Never Left” 48″x36″ Colourful Green, Yellow and Blue Aspen and Birch Tree Painting by Contemporary Canadian Landscape Artist Melissa McKinnon Calgary, Alberta

NEW Painting!

I love the thick texture throughout this painting. I’ve been experimenting with new mediums and textures and I am extremely happy with the results! Using a variety of palette knives, I paint and sculpt the tree trunks creating layers of colour and thick bumpy texture.

The tree trunks actually feel like real bark.

The bold colour combinations and pops of shimmery metallic accents throughout this painting make it truly unique.

You can see a perfect example of this in the picture below. The subtle shifts of vibrant colour in the falling leaves create interest and depth in the painting.

The tree trunks are thickly sculpted with layers and layers of black, grey and white paint accented with colours from the leaves and highlighted with shimmery patches of gold and silver to create a multi-dimensional effect.
