Ken Danby's At The Crease.

Just finished reading the CanWest News story about the passing of artist Ken Danby and (almost) the final words on his work At The Crease.

I wasn't up on the mystery behind the identity of the goalie in the picture. The story reveals almost all.
But to his death, the artist never divulged his subject's identity, insisting that At the Crease was "never intended to represent a particular player, but simply the personification of a goalie."
I say again, almost, because they have not talked to the goalie yet.

And you can download a desktop of the painting here.
