Acrylic on Illustration Board
24″ x 36″
This was a painting I had airbrushed and donated to a Children’s Hospital Sports Memorabilia Auction. For a number of years I was a regular contributor to the auction. One year I was given the opportunity to spend 15 minutes with the Stanley Cup, while it was on display, to shoot reference shots for this painting. During the photo session I had the chance to meet Yvan Cournoyer and Henri Richard and have them sign the board I was going to do the painting on. After the painting was complete it was donated to the fund raising organization that put on the event every year. The painting spent the next few years getting signed by numerous NHL All Stars before being framed and prepared for auction.
