the Stanley Cup and ring, The 2002 Salt Lake City Olympic Gold Medal and ring, his music, and of course the 1991 overtime winning goal celebration slide.
The one famous image of his slide was taken from up in the second tier stands by the Edmonton Journal and they will not give up the rights to that image. So we created our own!!!
My vision for his slide image was to be on the ice surface about 10 feet in front of him.
The over all image has splashes of orange to bring out the Victor Walk Orange Movement...
The title, well that came to me after reading many of his interviews and listening to his number 1 hit song " I am who I am."
As I was shutting the lights off to my studio and walked upstairs to bed, his song was still in my head. As I got closer to the top of the stairs and thinking about his life I said to myself...
Yah that's right, he is who he is!... I then turned around and walked back down to the studio, turned the lights on and grabbed the first piece of paper I could fine and wrote the title to this piece!...lol
Theo's incredible journey and the stories go on but for some of his precious moments and life achievements, they are rendered in this painting forever.

Piece is available for viewing at the Alberta Sport Hall of Fame and Museum
