Part of The Artist's Life series

Ken Danby's paintings are recognized all over the world. From the painting of hands reaching down to lace up a skate, to the portrait of Wayne Gretzsky on the occasion of his retirement, to a woman on horseback in the surf or the profoundly insightful portrait of Gordon Lightfoot, Danby's work has left a lasting impression. A visit to his studio outside Guelph, Ontario provides an opportunity for Danby to explain in great detail the process of his work. Filmed just a month before he died prematurely of a heart attack, this documentary celebrates the work of an enigmatic man who is as impressive as his paintings.
