Marjorie's team

 Marjorie's team    20x16 acrylic

I met a really cool lady by the name of Doreen Lamond in 2008. One of our local papers had posted a photo of a group of 1938 girl hockey players. I tracked Doreen down and received her permission to make a painting of that photo. She came to see the painting when it was on exhibit in Cranbrook and told me stories about how her and her sister had played hockey, borrowed their brothers skates and fallen down a lot, but as she stated "they made their own fun". This painting is based on another photo, the one of her sister, Marjorie's team.
