Fun On Ice

CA$ 349.00 CAD

Canadians are passionate about their national sport - ice hockey. Picture the neighbourhood ponds and frozen rivers. The school is done. Work day for the parents is finished. The sun is slipping below the horizon, casting a golden glow upon the frozen surfaces of ponds and frozen rivers. Suddenly the landscape comes alive with the echoes of slap shots and cheers. The children lace up their skates, eagerly awaiting their friends and parents to join in the fun. Their laughter echoes through the crisp winter air. It's not time for competition. It is time to have fun for adults and families as they share the exhilarating joy of the gliding on the ice and playing hockey. These are the times when bonding between friends and family members occurs, and lasting memories are made.

The Story Behind

"Dreams are so important. You need to have big goals and expect a lot of yourself but you have to enjoy the ride too." - Sidney Crosby

I am not a hockey player but I love to see the youngsters play hockey from a young age. I have a grand daughter who announced at age five that she was going to play hockey. The hockey gear probably weighed more than she did. The practices were early in the morning but did that deter her from playing hockey? No way! She is 18 now and she loves playing hockey. I love watching her play. She is the inspiration behind this painting.

Hockey is no doubt a fun team sport. Not every child will be a famous NHL player like Sidney Crosby but one can certainly dream to be one and have fun while working towards thaat goal.

Knowing where one wants to go, setting the goal and focusing on it are important in order to succeed. If one can eliminate distractions and stay focused on a single goal, success is not hard to attain. Sometimes it takes a young six-year old to remind us of this. It is based on a true story.

What’s a Rich Text element?

The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.

Static and dynamic content editing

A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!

How to customize formatting for each rich text

Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.
