One of the great gifts John has given me has been another way of looking at light. We would be sitting, talking, and I would notice that his eyes had strayed. Hmmmn, J, what are you looking at? How the light is hitting the wall he would reply and so it goes over the years, as I try to see what he sees. And I can't do that but I have learned to be much more observant of the qualities of light, the power of light. On his studio wall is a wonderful quote by Edward Hooper to Andrew Wyeth. "Andy, as I get older the only thing I want to paint is how sunlight hits a white wall."
