Welcome to the blog of Melanie McDonald ! I'm a professional artist, my life is divided between my home in Newquay, Cornwall and my renovation project - an 18th Century farm - in North Brittany, France. My inspiration comes from the beautiful beaches, skies and seas of Cornwall, Brittany and Scotland. This is where I share my paintings and photographs, I hope it inspires you.

12x12 Painting A Day Project

Today is my birthday!  

So, I've set myself a painting challenge - to create a 12 x 12 Painting A Day for the next year.  

Each 12 x 12 inch painting will be on handmade Indian paper.  These smaller pieces will encourage experimentation, and add a new perspective to my larger artworks, (I hope!).

So, here goes, here's today's 12 x 12 painting.  (I'll be posting groups of 7 paintings every Monday .... if you'd like to follow along, please submit your email in the box on your right.)

Painting No. 1 (from the Liberté Series)

(Ps. You can take a look at all my paintings at - Melanie McDonald Gallery. Or come and say Hello, ask a question - love to hear from you!, and chat with me on Twitter - or just Like my NEW page on Facebook, thanks!).
