James Lumbers - Mr. Hockey - Gordie Howe

Before painting hockey legend Gordie Howe, I had the chance
to get to know him. Part of what I learned is captured in
this painting. Here, echoes of the past come to life, as the
future Mr. Hockey acquires his first skate. One of his older
sisters had laid claim to the other skate, but Gordie knew that
if he was patient he would own both. Skates changed Gordie's
life. He moved from farm life, skating on the frozen sloughs
of a wintry prairie, to decades of fame in hockey arenas
across North America.Painting Gordie Howe was a great
challenge for me. It was also an opportunity to honour an
outstanding career, and pay tribute to one of professional
sports all time greatest athletes.
