SOLD! “A Night To Remember” Original Acrylic Aspen / Birch Tree Painting by Contemporary Canadian Artist Melissa McKinnon

SOLD!

This painting was purchased by a wonderful naturopathic doctor  to hang in her new clinic in Taylor, British Columbia! I’m so happy that my work will be seen and enjoyed by so many people while visiting her clinic. It will certainly add warmth and create an inviting, cozy atmosphere for all of her patients.

This painting has been a favourite of many and I’m sad to see it go. Although, I look forward to see it hanging in it’s new home in Taylor, BC.

“When I started this painting, I set out to paint with a palette of reds, yellows, and white. However, when I saw that tube of copper paint from the corner of my eye, I just had to use it. From that moment on the entire look and feel of the painting changed and took on a life of its own. Because my paintings are so thick with texture, most of the metallic copper layer is hidden under layers and layers…and layers of paint, but in just the right places it peeks out and shimmers in the light giving this painting a stunning and truly unique look.”

How One Color Can Change Everything – A Closer Look at “A Night To Remember” Original Acrylic Aspen / Birch Tree Painting by Calgary Artist Melissa McKinnon

One day, I was in one of my happy places – the art supply store, and I spotted a new tube of metallic copper paint. I instantly had to buy it and brought it home where it sat for a few months untouched. This happens often and it drives my husband nuts. But for me, sometimes just having a beautiful color or an extra blank canvas is just as good as using it. I know one day those items will inspire greatness, until then I am happy just having them close by.

When I started this painting, I set out to paint with a palette of reds, yellows, and white. However, when I saw that tube of copper paint from the corner of my eye, I just had to use it. From that moment on the entire look and feel of the painting changed and took on a life of its own. Because my paintings are so thick with texture, most of the metallic copper layer is hidden under layers and layers…and layers of paint, but in just the right places it peeks out and shimmers in the light giving this painting a stunning and truly unique look.
