SOLD! Peaceful and Calming Ocean and Beach Seascape Painting by Contemporary Artist and Landscape Painter Melissa McKinnon “Dreaming Of Being Seaside”

Inspired by my recent travels along the beautiful coast of Eastern Canada, this new painting offers a calm and peaceful interpretation of the rocky shores and vibrant blue ocean view.

On a windy day, everything seems to blend softly together making it appear as though the sky  pours into the sea and the sea becomes absorbed into the land. A beautiful reminder that everything in nature is connected.

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…

“Seaside II” 12″x12″ Acrylic Painting on Canvas
$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.

“Beneath the Surface” 36″x36″ Acrylic Painting on Canvas

This painting was inspired by the beautiful Canadian prairie landscape.

Looking west from my studio, this is the view I see everyday. A big, bold Alberta sky and vast prairie fields leading toward the majestic Rocky Mountains and Banff National Park.

I could spend my lifetime painting this landscape and never paint the same image twice. The colours and textures of the landscape change with the quality of light from the sky and the sky changes by the minute.

It’s gloriously beautiful!

“Passion” 60″x60” Acrylic Painting on Canvas

This painting was commissioned by local Calgary, Alberta, interior designer extraordinaire Monika S to celebrate her 29th wedding anniversary and she wanted it to be big, bold and beautiful! Monika has a passion for colour and creativity that she exudes in her life and through her work and she wanted this painting to be an expression of those qualities.

Monika first sent me this photo and explained that she has an open concept home and would like the artwork to be the focal point of the main living space. We decided on a 5ft x 5ft / 60″ x 60″ canvas to fill the space above her dining room hutch.

Design Tip: Big artwork makes a BIG statement in any room. Find a large painting you LOVE and it will turn the room from drab to fab, instantly!

The Before Shot

She loved the colours and concept of one of my previous paintings “Lust” and wanted to use it as an inspiration for her custom painting.

Design Tip: Art doesn’t have to match your home! Choose artwork that you LOVE and allow the art to inspire your decor.

Fantastic works of art are likely going to be one of the biggest investments you will make in your home decor so you should connect with it in a big way, it should make you feel something, be an inspiration to you… after all you are going to be living with it for many, many years to come.

Choose art that you LOVE and NOT just because it matches your sofa!

(You can always buy a new sofa!)

And that’s just what Monika did! She changed a few things in her space that would really make the painting stand out, including moving some furniture around and painting an accent wall and island base to compliment the bold and vibrant colours in the painting.

Painting In Progress – It all begins with an inspiration and a sketch!
“Passion” 60″x60” Acrylic Painting on Canvas

“Purple  – ‘Passion’ – is the ultimate expression of a creative person’s world. This painting, with its myriad shades of purple and red hues nourishes and inspires the soul. I often  like to pay a game with friends  by having them guess how many paint swatches went into the piece. ”  —Monika.S.

Painting In Progress – Over 4000 “marks” were applied to create this piece!
“Passion” 60″x60” Acrylic Painting on Canvas

After several weeks of painting and over 4000 “marks” later, I happily delivered and installed Monika’s painting, “Passion” in her freshly painted home. It really changes the entire feel of the space – the large size and vibrant colours add vitality, energy and warmth to her home. Most importantly it expresses Monika’s personality and passion for life.

“Passion” 60″x60” Acrylic Painting on Canvas Installed in Collector’s Home

One special request that Monika had was to incorporate two hearts into the painting to symbolize her and her husband and celebrate their 29th wedding anniversary. They are small and subtle (see if you can spot them!) and it makes this custom painting all the more special to them!
