First Star | 16" x 16"

About the Artwork

First Star is a 16" x 16" acrylic painting by Peter Wyse created on a birch panel with painted white edges. A reference to the hockey tradition of naming the game's best player, this is a lively portrayal of childhood joy and the love of Canada's game. Standing confidently in an Edmonton Oilers jersey on a snowy expanse under a starry sky, the child embodies the game's pure spirit and young athletes' dreams. The Oilers' classic blue and orange pop out against the cool blues and whites of the winter landscape, drawing attention straight to the young player. The stars twinkle with a warm, golden hue, adding a touch of magic to the scene and emphasizing the title. The texture and layers of acrylic paint create a sense of depth and dimension, making the snowy ground appear invitingly tactile. Wyse's technique of building up and then carefully sanding down the layers of paint brings out subtle textures and shadows, giving the artwork a life-like quality.
