Painting LIVE in Banff, Alberta – A Prairie Inspired Landscape Painting With Colourful Cloudy Sky After a Storm

Painting LIVE in Banff!
For the past few weeks I’ve been working on this gorgeous landscape painting commissioned by a national medical research company. I finished the painting live on stage at the Banff Springs Hotel at one of Canada’s largest medical conferences – an extraordinary experience!

The finished painting ‘From Darkness Into Light’ 36″x24″

Our intent was to convey the feelings of a person transitioning from the darkness of disease into health and light. The inspiration was a beautiful prairie landscape featuring a big cloudy sky. You can see the dark, tumultuous storm clouds on the left and how they begin to transition into glowing sun lit clouds.

Although the painting “From darkness into Light” has been purchased by the medical company who hired me, it became a study for a larger painting which I created afterward in my studio.

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…

$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.

“Ninfa’s Colours” 10″x10” Acrylic Painting on Canvas

This painting was purchased by one of my collectors as a unique and thoughtful birthday gift for one of their friends. It is now hanging in it’s new home in Regina, Saskatchewan, Canada.

“Ninfa’s Colours” is from the series of landscape and beach paintings that I created earlier this year while in Chile, South America. To see more from the series, CLICK HERE.

Most of these colourful and thick textured paintings have been purchased but one of my favourites, “Terreno” is still available!

Translated into English, ‘terreno’ means land or terrain.

Every evening on the drive back to the house we were renting in Rancagua, Chile, I saw this breathtaking view. It is forever etched into my memory.

Although the Chilean landscape is quite different from Canada, the big, beautiful and richly coloured skies remind me of home.
