A local art collector contacted me a few weeks after the horrific Humboldt Broncos bus crash with an idea for a tribute / memorial piece that he wished to have me draw after he saw the memorial piece I had created.
His idea was to depict those lost as if they were ready to enter a hockey rink in heaven. The collector also requested that I honor the four lives lost from the Swift Current hockey team, in a similar event which occurred in 1986. He also requested likenesses of some famous NHL players who are also no longer with us.
The original drawing, which measured 40" x 30", was auctioned off at the annual "Night with the Stars" gala held in Regina to generate much needed funds for the STARS Air Ambulance Service. I was fortunate to attend the gala.
The art collector contracted me for 50 limited edition prints, and they are selling out quickly.
The print measures 23" x 18" including a 1" border.
A signed certificate of authenticity accompanies each piece.
