🏒GO JETS 🏒 #WPGWhiteOut

The WINNIPEG JETS are in the Western Conference final. I’ve been a fan of the “Jets” since 2014. Sherrie has me all wound up!

This mural features the “Golden Jet” Bobby Hull whose slapshot was once clocked at 152.9 km/h. He was the first player in the NHL to sign a million dollar deal.

Bobby Hull & others have also returned to Winnipeg in the heat of the playoffs. “It’s going to be a hell of a game” says Bobby!

Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada

I hear Burton Cummings will sing our National Anthem at the next game.

Burton, is a much loved son of Winnipeg.

  1. GO JETS GO!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I ♥♥♥♥♥ ME SOME TEEMU! I ♥♥♥♥♥ ME SOME BURTON!

    GO JETS GO!!!!!!!!!!!!


  2. At least one Canadian team made it… so.. because I don’t know if we will ever be able to say “Go Habs!”, I’ll still root for the Jets! Go Jets!! 😉

    1. I’ll always root for the Canadian team too but I have to admit, my life kinda begins and ends with the Jets 😉 Thanks for the support! ❤

    1. Yay! Go Jets!
      It really is a gorgeous painting. It is one of the very first murals that I ever shot. If I shot it now, there would be a few more pics. LOL! I just don’t know when to stop.

  3. I really learn a lot here at your blog Resa. Being down under the only Jets I knew if were the NY Jets (football ). This is amazing art and you’ve done your usual spectacular photography catchimg it for us! We are finally getting into Hockey big time here and I live it. Thank dear Resa. Your posts always amaze and delight. 🙂 xo

    1. Lol! It’s amazing anyone learns anything here. Although, art teaches, so why not street art?
      Hey, Florida Panthers, right? Alright! So, I know you are American, but who are you rooting for between the Winnipeg Jets and the Las Vegas Golden Knights?
      There’s still time to root for the American team once the Jets win the Western Conference, and face off with ,,, whomever! LOL! Game 1 tonight at 7, & I’ll be watching. Hoping Burton sings the anthem. If he also sings the American anthem, I know he’ll bring the house down!

      1. Lol! Well I’m gonns have to root for Las Vegas though I doubt we have the stuff to beat Winnepeg. You know we are just recently really getting into hockey. I know a lot of people with kids into Hockey moved to Canada so they could train. Goldie Hahn and Kurt Russell being one. Don’t know if he got anywhere or not. I doubt they will sing the American Anthem. The reverse would never happen here. 😎

        1. The weather went from winter to summer in 3 days. The black door is constantly tagged! However, I’m sure once I put your words on it again, it will get respect!
          I just finished a new Art Gown! I did graffiti on her. I’ll start shooting her on Wednesday. Once that is done and posted, the door is next on my list!
          Missed you, too! I’m well, and trust you are! Big Hugs!

          1. The way you are describing the weather on your end, its the same thing going on here in L.A. hahahaha!!!

            I’m curious how people will react the my words.

            Awesome! I shall go to your Art Gown and check it out.

            I’m well…and big hugs from me to you, resa. 🙂 I’m so proud of you and happy for you. 🙂

              1. Resa, is the blog you posted on ‘Art Gown’ says: “Art Gowns Art”, it has art concept sketches of your friend: Aquileana? If so, I will look at your creation of beauty and give you my feedback comment. 🙂 So, a new post will be up soon? or was the Art Gowns Art the last post? 🙂

                1. Yes, Art Gowns Art was the last one, not the new one. I am just shooting the new Art Gown now! She should be up in a week or so!
                  Art Gowns Art was a lot of fun in the meantime, as the new Art Gown was taking sooo long! 😀

    1. Yeah, he’s a home town boy! They LOVE him in Winnipeg! They refurbished the old Walker Theater, and named it after him. That’s the theater where Nellie McClung and her girls did their mockery of men’s parliament. It was a turning point, and the women of Manitoba became the first in Canada… N. America, I believe, to get the vote!!!
      Hey, Burton was in a car accident a few days ago! Now, he might not be able to sing at the big hockey game!

        That’s too bad, I hope he recovers quickly. It’s really cool how Winnipeg has all that history of feminism associated with Nellie McClung and the other suffragettes. You’re doing them proud by carrying on the tradition xoxo

  4. This is beyond beautiful. Seriously, they should send that wall to the hockey Hall of Fame.
    It is gorgeous. These artists never cease to amaze me. So many of these murals compare to paintings in museums.

    Thanks for sharing this with me. xoxo

Speak your art mind!
