Thank You From The Bottom Of My Heart

Thank you

First off, thank you from the bottom of my heart for your interest in my articles, artwork and my journey. My previous article was about my life and coping with a chronic illness. The support I received was overwhelming, I cannot express how it touched me to read all the comments and emails that you sent. I so appreciate those who shared their own story. The love I felt was huge. Thank you. I am so grateful to be able to share my passion with such a wonderful group. I was really blown away.

So as you know I took a little break (I needed to produce some paintings) and decided that going forward I will be doing bi-monthly articles. I would like to do some in-depth demos and weekly doesn’t allow for that. I put a lot of work into the articles and I still need time to paint πŸ™‚

Paintings for an upcoming group show about the Weather

Secondly, I thought I would share what I have been up to. I have been hard at work painting. These are paintings that I did for a group show on the weather. The show is at the Fog Forest Gallery in Sackville, New Brunswick and opens September 13th.

These paintings are done with acrylic and I really enjoyed painting them. I find the more I paint the more I move away from realism especially with my acrylics and oils.

My Studio is Empty Without You

I wanted to share this picture again.

Since my last post, my sweet dog Jack has left us. It is so hard to lose a beloved pet. They are our family. Jack was in my studio every time I was, it is empty in here without him. He had a wonderful life, he was 12 and 3/4s, he was loyal and always had a wag in his tail (actually his whole back end lol) He will be forever missed. Poor Charlie keeps looking for him :(.

What mediums do you create with?

I know I use just about every medium out there lol I love to experiment and try new things πŸ™‚ Currently, I am creating with watercolor, acrylic, and oil. What mediums are you using?

Sending love your way, Krista

  1. Hi Krista,
    We know the pain of losing a loved one– we always have two dogs (one a few years older than the other. When we lose one, the remaining one goes into mourning, so we get a younger one, and that brings the older one back around.
    I dabble in watercolors, but need to spend more time working in that medium as it really appeals to me. My main artwork is done in acrylics– primarily landscapes, and some with old buildings, animals, etc,. I live in the mountains, so lots of mountains, lakes, rivers, etc, but I grew up on the west coast, so some seascapes as well.
    Always so much more to learn as we progress in our artistic endeavours.
    I look forward to more of your lessons.

    1. Hi Kurtis, I also had 2 Cocker Spaniels. Jack was my last one, it is amazing how much these sweet aminals touch our lives. I am having a hard time as Jack will be my last dog for now. Maybe someday there will be room for another πŸ™‚

      It is true that were are on a lifelong journey of learning when it comes to art. Isn’t it wonderful!

  2. Oh, Krista, I am so sorry about Jack. I know how much you loved him. Also, I understand chronic pain. Hugs on all accounts. Looking forward to seeing you soon, hopefully! Susan

  3. Hi Krista – so good to hear from you. Sad news about your Jack. Our dear Sam (Abyssinian cat) died last fall he was 14. We miss him too. Krista I am “in love” with these new works of yours. Just beautiful!! Stay well. I think you’ve chosen a much healthier schedule for your newsletters and demos. I enjoy them!! Peace and painting, Patti D

    1. Thank you Patti,

      Yes, it is hard when our pets go. Sorry about your Sam.

      I am enjoying doing some acrylic πŸ™‚ It is funny I enjoy so many different mediums (some more than others) take care πŸ™‚

  4. Nice to hear from you again Krista and to know that you are doing better. I really like the paintings you shared for the Weather show – such an interesting effect. I, too, am a multi-media artist and have recently been doing a lot of paper quilling and painting of turkey feathers which I then add to watercolour or pen & ink drawings for framing – gotta keep the mind and fingers active – lol. Good luck at the ‘Weather’ Show and take care.

    Glad your back Krista,

    Still plugging along here in KC. Have an opportunity to enter 3 pieces in a show no particular theme. Also have an acrylic of the Liberty Memorial World War 1 remembrance up for selection at another gallery.
    Still interested in your process for batik. Have made a couple not sure of results. Look forward to new learning.

  6. Watercolor is my favorite. Thank you for being personal. It’s so appreciated and heart received!!
