When a Friend Moves Away

Last week I was contacted by a very nice woman here in Ashburn, whose son’s friend was moving away, and they wanted to give him a special keepsake as a going-away gift. Her son and his friend both play hockey and lacrosse together, so she came up with the idea of a painting that said “Go Through Life with Goals” and which would incorporate hockey, lacrosse, his favorite hockey team colors and logo (The Chicago Blackhawks) and the logo of the local hockey team they play on (Ashburn Selects).

What a cool idea! This was not my typical commission, but it was a joy to make and reminded me of my childhood, when I aspired to be a professional sports player and enjoyed playing sports with my neighborhood friends.
