These subjects are a sampling of the paintings that Lumbers has created over the
years. Hockey is certainly one of the cornerstones of sports in Canada. Shown here
are portraits of two of the greatest players of all time, Gordie Howe and Wayne Gretzky.
Each painting has a pictorial history of how they started their careers. When issued
these were two of the most successful prints at the time.
The other prints represent the dreams and aspirations of young players and the history
of how the hockey mask developed.
Lumbers took the same approach when portraying Joe Montana, feeling that adding something
of his past said more than just displaying the present, giving him a presence in
the painting that is unique.
Golf is truly a sport for people at every level and here Lumbers has taken a humorous
approach to a situation that could stretch the imagination of any believer.
