Some new paintings

Here are a couple new paintings that I recently finished.

My friend and I have been going to the Bardini Museum and painting in there. It's sooper fun to be allowed to actually paint in a museum! They're all really friendly there, and they pretty much all know us now too, so I don't even feel that weird doing it (anymore;)

Also, here's a commission I recently finished for a friend.

Hi Kristy,

I really enjoyed reading your blog- those paintings mixed with your personal experiences make it very interesting to follow. Also good work on the armour.

Sven

Love the highlights Kristy, I was surprised to see the relatively small size of the canvas with such great detail.

Really inspiring.....just like Crosby in overtime.

I absolutely adore the armour painting! From afar I swear it looks like a photograph.

You're one of my favourite artists - I have one of your landscapes from back in 2003/2004 from when you were at the Elmwood Art Fair. My parents also have a few of your works and we fight over who gets custody of them since I've moved out :P.

I love seeing all the photos from your adventures in Italy! Keep up the fantastic work, you're such an artistic inspiration!

Hey Dude! This is Kate, but I'm using Dave's google account to post a comment because I'm too obtuse to figure out how to create my own account. Your paintings look great! I can't believe how tiny that suit of armor is considering the detail. I'm really jealous of your apartment too. What are your plans for the next year?

Kate
