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)

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

Signed, Sealed, Delivered! Update From My Newest Art Collector In Ontario, Canada

I love it when collectors send me updates! It’s so nice to see where my paintings will live on once they leave my studio. A letter from my collector:

“Melissa, this is your painting in its new home! We live in a small condo, so it has THE place of honour. It fits in so beautifully and I just love to stare at it. Thank you!”

Here is one of my newest treescape paintings, “Learn From the Fall” 48″x36″ hanging in it’s new home in Burnaby, Ontario. I love how the vibrant colour of the painting stands out from the neutral palette of their decor. It really makes a statement in the room!

NEW Painting! “Kaleidoscope Trees” 48″x36″ Colourful Acrylic Aspen / Birch Tree Painting on Canvas by Canadian Abstract Landscape Artist Melissa McKinnon

NEW Painting!

I spent much of my childhood growing up in Ontario, Canada. I have so many memories of my cousins and exploring the densely wooded forests near our house. Endless summer days soon evolved into crisp Autumn evenings. It was a time when everything seemed brighter, full of energy and laughter.

This painting was inspired by the vibrant colours of Autumn in Eastern Canada that I fell in love with as a child.

Name Game – The Inspiration Behind the Painting “Learn From the Fall” and How I Choose the Titles For My Artwork

A collector recently wrote to me and asked about the inspiration behind the painting “Learn From the Fall” and the meaning behind the title.

“Learn From the Fall” 48″x36” Acrylic Painting on Canvas

The title of the painting, “Learn From the Fall” is from a song that I adore.

I am often inspired by literature and music lyrics. When I read or hear a phrase that speaks to me, I will make a note of it for future reference (occasionally on the wall of my studio, like how it happened with this one!).

Sometimes the phrase will inspire a new painting and sometimes the title is chosen after the painting is complete as a way to describe the emotion or life experience that I was inspired by while creating. In this case the title came to me in the beginning stages of the painting. I love the title and everything that it represents to me.

“Learn From the Fall” inspires me to learn from challenging life experiences and to persevere. 

As in life, love and art – we fall.

Sometimes life doesn’t go the way we had hoped. The best thing we can do is embrace those experiences and learn from them.

Visually, in the painting you can see the green leaves falling on the left hand side and sweeping up through the middle of the painting and turning a brighter shade of yellow as they rise. The painting has a cyclical feel to the composition – as leaves fall down towards the earth in death, they are just as soon lifted up as if carried by a gust of wind for a second chance.

It reminds me of falling head over heels in love with reckless abandon… and then… inevitably learning from that experience, yet still choosing to do it all over again the next time. 😉 It’s a beautiful thing.

“I recently packed up all of my necessary art supplies and hauled them, along with my family of five to Chile, South America for six weeks. In addition to touring the land, spending time with our wonderful family and friends, I am also thankful to have had a ton of time to relax, paint, and be inspired by this beautiful country. I have been painting small studies 10″x10″ and 12″x12″ which I am using as inspiration to reinterpret on a larger scale now that I have returned home to Canada. Here are some of the pieces from my newest collection of en plain air paintings from Viña del Mar, Chile, South America.”
