And some background:

With the lockdown, and January being what it is, sales are a little slow. Rent, utilities, and other bills have to be paid. We want to continue to be around when lockdown ends. Sooooo, my bad luck may be your good luck. This is your chance to acquire an original piece of art at a good price. Who knows? You may get it for $10 or $20!
There’s a bit of a story behind this painting. I’m reminiscing about my youth, when my parents would take us skiing in the Laurentians. And sometimes we would stay a little closer to home and go to Sydenham Ski Hill. I’d be there with my hand-me-down SIMPSONS-SEARS brand skis that I hated. My mother wrote my name on them with red nail polish because, God forbid, someone might steal them! Ha! Anyway, I digress...

Good luck to everyone who bids!
