On May 9th, it was my honour to drive Jim and his wife Gay to the Art Gallery of Golden. Jim had not had a chance to view the finished sculpture prior to the start of the gallery show as the bronze was finished just before the show opened. I think you'll agree with me that this wonderful 94 year old gentleman wears his years exceptionally well! I have portrayed him as a younger man, perhaps representing the amazing spirit of the young men who served Canada in WW II. As a pilot in the RCAF, one of the many planes Jim flew was the Hurricane on missions in Burma. It has been such a pleasure getting to know this very active, community spirited man!
