The Lucky Mitt

Acrylic, 2016

Cheers to a beer in Winter! It is easy to enjoy an ice-cold tall one in the summer, but only real Canadians are willing to enjoy an ice-cold frosty bottle in minus temperatures. It could be a Molson Canadian, a BC craft brew, or a Pilsner. Vancouver Islanders grew up on LUCKY and it is still a well recognized brand on the west coast. Part of a series of small works called 'The Red Mittens' poking fun at 'Canadian' pastimes such as; hockey, beer, snow and Tim Hortons coffee. In this piece the red mitten is holding a beer.
