James Lumbers Gone Fishing

" GONE FISHING "
James Lumbers

390 s/n Paper 26" x 21" Email-price

Mr. Emmet is a re-occurring character in many of my fishing
canvases. Regrettably, as I began sketching the outline for
Gone Fishin', I received word that my friend and neighbour
has died suddenly. The always popular Mr. Emmet would
appear in future paintings. But I decided that this one must be
a tribute to that wonderful lone fisherman, and to capture the
solitude and freedom that he enjoyed so. I decided to add Mr.
Emmet's faithful companion Sally at the last minute. Here
we see her as she sits at the edge of the dock in eager anticipation
of the catch of the day. The painting is set on Otter Island,
the dock a part of the old Nimrod Club. I took some liberties
with the building, however, deciding to capture the structure
as it once was, rather than how it appeared at the time this work was taking shape.

Looking at the image today, I can still hear
Mr. Emmet waving good-bye to his wife in the city, saying
"If anyone askes for me, tell them I've gone fishin'"
