Artist Comments:

Like a page from a fantasy book, the knight steps out of the past and into the present.
Jousting: The medieval spot of knights and horses is alive and well today.
The Society of Tilt and Lance Cavalry, based in Calgary, is an active jousting troop. They can be seen jousting around Calgary and in the USA.
My models for this painting are Sir Steve Knapp, his trusty steed Lucy, and his wife and squire Lady Candice. You can learn more about Jousting at www.joust.ca
