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

SOLD! “Eye Candy” 60″x36″ Colourful Abstract Autumn Birch and Aspen Tree Painting by Canadian Contemporary Landscape Artist Melissa McKinnon Calgary, Alberta

SOLD!

It’s bittersweet to see this painting leave my studio. I have a real love and appreciation for it and I’m sad to see it go. That being said, I’m ecstatic that it was purchased by a high school friend who has been a long time supporter of my creative career.

I know that it will be well loved and appreciated by their entire family for years to come.

The book, Organization Theory & Design is  scheduled to be published in September 2014. I’ve seen the rough draft of the layout and it looks amazing!

The painting will be the entire front cover accented with subtle text – very colourful and eye catching. I’m proud of Nelson for making such a bold and contemporary choice!
