Pat Luders, Sculptor

Jim's first view of his portrait

Added on by Pat Luder.

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!
