Richard, I discovered your art with an article in Kingston This Week regarding selection of your talent for a commemorative $20 Canadian coin. Congratulations! What an honor, and what a beautiful image; it captures the nostalgic essence of many Canadian childhood memories, in my case growing up in (then even more) remote Northern Newfoundland, though now calling Glenburnie home, where I am blessed with still being able to live the memory in my backyard on Colonel By Lake. As a matter of fact, on this cold November morning CBL looks like it will be perfect for pond hockey again this season! Thanks for the memories; the coin looks great as well!

Richard De Wolfe replied:

Thank you so much Greg. It was a great honour to have the opportunity to create the 'Pond Hickey' coin. I am so glad that you found it both nostalgic and inspirational!

Tucson, Ar - United States

While logging on, I saw a couple of your recently sold paintings and decided to visit your gallery. I'm a photo artist, not a painter, but enjoyed your style and content. They remind me of childhood in the Toronto area and fond memories of Ontario. I hope to return (relocate) there some day and catch up on unvisited places, such as 1000 Islands. Meanwhile, I bake in the Arizona desert, which also has scenic beauty of a different sort. Thanks for the visual reminder of my roots, Greg.

This Time For Sure


Richard De Wolfe


Painting - Alkyd On Canvas


Winters are long for country kids in both Canada and the northeastern USA. For many generations these boys and girls spent much of their time out-of-doors, often skating on frozen farm ponds. A few friends would gather on a hastily shoveled rink for an afternoon of "shinny" and plenty of fresh air. Equipment was often scarce, sometimes even lacking skates. Goal posts were improvised with such readily available items as a pair of boots or even blocks of firewood.
