The LA Kings won the Stanley Cup last night. I’m a big Kings fan. My son-in-law plays in a small league which adds more fun watching the kings play. The painting is of LA kings Dustin Brown captain of the Los Angeles Kings. He is noted for his physical playing style, consistently ranking among the league leaders in hits and penalties drawn. (Hitting too hard) As Dustin says, ““You’ve got to try to go after guys, get guys off their game.” Being the captain of the LA Kings he takes the responsibility seriously, “”Being captain is a lot more work than I thought it would be, that’s for sure. But I see it as a welcomed challenge and one that I take very seriously and work hard at. It’s a lot of fun and with this team it’s pretty easy to keep the guys motivated because we all push each other.” And about the Stanley cup? ““The Stanley Cup is a special trophy, and you kind of dream about having this chance your whole life if you’re a hockey player.”
The painting is 12″ by 16″ ink and acrylic on 1980’s Sporting News hockey pages (newsprint) mounted on canvas board.
