Artist John Kiernan's tribute to the Capitals.

Cachet-Ode to the Capitals

A local artist celebrates his favorite hockey team with an anniversary tribute


This year marks the Washington Capitals’ 35th season, and local artist and avid Caps fan John Kiernan of Blueline Studios found his own unique way of commemorating the milestone. A season-ticket holder, hockey player and coach, Kiernan decided to meld his passions for the sport and his art with a lithograph depicting many of the team’s players (above). He was thrilled with the experience of painting something “that means so much to me,” he says. “I enjoy being an artist, but this felt like something more.” 

Kiernan, who specializes in murals and faux finishes, sold the 18-by-24-inch limited-edition lithographs at Capitals’ games throughout December 2009; they are now available for $75 from his studio in Warrenton, Virginia. For more information, call 540-349-2792 or visit www.blueline
