The images on this site are all her own original creations of hockey games played by young people enjoying the outdoor game of hockey. They proudly wear the hockey sweaters of their favorite teams namely the Montreal Canadians and the Toronto Maple Leafs. The original paintings were all painted in oil on canvas and depict players trying to score that all-important goal or a goalie stopping that crucial puck. This scene evokes a simpler time when hockey was played in a natural setting among the trees and snow and the game was fun no matter which team won.This painting is an original oil on canvas 11X14 inches in dimension
