The Goalie

 The Goalie
I loved the image of this young goalie, Hunter.  His mother is my coworker and is leaving to work in another province.  It will be Hunter's last season with the KV team.  I thought I would try my hand at this image, attempting to represent the colours faithfully, the feel of the ice, the shading through the mask, the glass boards along the rink.  I wanted to retain the emphasis on him standing alone, facing the ice and the players ahead of him.  I gave the painting as a Christmas/departure gift.
