New Paintings of Friends

Here's a couple new paintings I just finished of my friends here in Toronto. I'm moving away from Toronto next week (flying to Norway first to apprentice with Odd Nerdrum, then I'll probably return to BC for a bit or something). I'm really going to miss all my friends in Ontario and I was so happy to get to paint Christina Mazzulla and Nicki Brooks before I leave!


















"Looking Inward," oil on canvas, 24"x 30"























"Nicki," oil on canvas, 18"x 14"

Apprenticing with Odd Nerdrum WOW! You have my fantasy life! Your work is so beautiful, Kristy. You've got technique but you got some emotional truth there too, I think not many people have both.

Aww, thanks Chloe! I'm glad you like these latest paintings! I'll keep in touch when I'm in Norway with Odd Nerdrum! (By the way, did you know that anyone can apply to study with him? You can apply through his gallery in New York, Forum Gallery. If you'd like more info let me know. Ya, and it's actually free too! It's pretty generous of him and his wife!

I love the looseness and softness of your work. It is very beautiful and gorgeous.

Hello Kristy,

I'm a regular at this blog. I'm just struck by "Looking Inside". I don't know what (i'm no expert see),but I'm just struck by that particular painting. Simply beautiful. Thanks a lot for sharing.

Oops sorry, typo...."looking inward" is what I meant.
