He did The Henrik, doing The Daniel was only natural.
For the second time in as many years, Tony Harris, the official artist of the NHLPA, was commissioned to do a painting to commemorate the 1,000th game of one of the Vancouver Canucks. Last year Harris did The Henrik, today he unveiled The Daniel, to celebrate Daniel Sedin’s incredible achievement.
The piece, which took Harris nine days and a few sleepless nights to complete, was given to Daniel during a pre-game ceremony on Sunday, November 23rd, when the Canucks hosted the Chicago Blackhawks. It’s safe to assume it’ll soon be hanging proudly somewhere within the Sedin household and will remain there for years to come.
Tony recently stopped by Canucks Headquarters to discuss his latest work of art and he revealed a few insider secrets about The Daniel.
