Canada Waits For Christmas – December 10th

The most fun aspect of posting this Canadian-culture Advent calendar is discovering all the fantastic Canadian art I never knew existed. When I entered the search term “pond hockey Canadian” I was thrilled when Richard De Wolfe‘s art images appeared. “Please be Canadian, Richard De Wolfe!” I wished as I went to his website. He is Canadian!

Mr. De Wolfe is a self-taught professional freelance artist living on a farm in central Ontario. When he was eighteen, he hosted a one-man art exhibit and has never looked back. Please be sure to check out his artwork. Meanwhile, here are a couple beautiful winter scenes from his website gallery:

This one is called “Pond Hockey.”
I love this nostalgic piece entitled “Coming Home.”

And Santa, if you’re listening and watching that’s a bit creepy; however, this is another Canadian artist’s work I’d like to have hanging on my wall.

Here’s Stompin’ Tom Connors‘s most famous song “The Hockey Song.”

“Where players dash, with skates aflash, the home team trails behind
But they grab the puck and go bursting up, and they’re down across the line”

I went for a half-hour walk around 3:00 p.m. all bundled up and I’m so glad I did! It’s 4:30 now and there’s hardly any light left in the sky. Thanks for stompin’ by on this fine Saturday evening. Take care. – Lori 🙂
