John Weiss - The Gift -  SMALLWORK CANVAS EDITION Published by the Greenwich Workshop

"Bad things do happen; how I respond to them defines my character and the quality of my life. I can choose to sit in sadness . . . or I can choose to rise from the pain and treasure the most precious gift I have - life itself." Walter Anderson

With the gift of life, it becomes possible for all else to fall into place. Each of us gets to decide what we do with our lives, what we use it for and how it suits us best. Cancer patients and survivors know just how quickly this gift can slip away and how precious another tomorrow can be.

Lori and John Weiss appreciate "The Gift" first-hand. Through the grace of God, personal determination and the discovery, diagnosis and treatment of her breast cancer at a facility like the Jean B and Milton N Cooper Cancer Center in Akron OH, Lori can count herself among the ever growing number of strong, joyful and appreciative women whose gift of life has been renewed.

“'The Gift' celebrates the purpose and promise of cancer treatment and recovery - the opportunity to enjoy the gifts of life, hope, family, friendship and another tomorrow,” John Weiss says. "This journey is one full of anxiety and fear, but when you to have faith in your strength to take it on, to face down the storm, you will realize that there is a bright horizon and new shoreline on other side."

“The symbolism of three generations in this family together at the shore is not only to show that this is something that affects everyone, but also to relate that with early diagnosis and treatment, there is every opportunity to have a full and complete life. I want people to know that together we are beating cancer.”

John Weiss created "The Gift" to support The Summa Foundation, which helps support the Cooper Cancer Center, where Lori received her care and treatment. Support from a project such as this is crucial to the future of health and cancer care. It allows the pursuit of innovative medical research that leads to life saving technologies. Through the years, funds raised by the foundation have supported research, physician and nursing education, medical equipment, patient education programs and so much more.

John Weiss
“My career is a love affair,” says John Weiss. “The love of God and the talent He’s given me, the love of life, the love of my subject matter. And the love of sharing all of these gifts with others through paintings and the stories they tell.” Weiss developed his appreciation for man’s best friend during his childhood in Akron, Ohio. “I’ve always loved dogs,” John says. “When I was a little boy my aunt Marian bought me a National Geographic book on dogs and I dove into it.” His father was a draftsman to whom John credits his disciplined approach to art. He drew throughout his childhood and developed his skill in high school art classes. On a trip to Maine, he saw an exhibit of Andrew Wyeth’s work, which inspired him to pursue art while attending Kent State University. After college, Weiss went into the landscape business. With the support of his wife, Tammy, he began painting full time. “I’m essentially self-taught,” he says, “having studied the work of artists I admire and learn from their methods and techniques. Experience is the best teacher.” John has painted some of the most important dogs of our time, having the joy and privilege of meeting and making many four-legged friends worldwide, and his avid and loyal collectors include many prominent families. John was commissioned by Lady Barlow to paint a portrait of a dog that was subsequently presented to Queen Elizabeth. Other notable collectors include as Jane Firestone, and John’s sketch of her German Shepard, Hatter, (the winningest dog in show dog history), is part of the AKC Museum of the Dog in St. Louis’ permanent collection. Weiss is recipient of numerous awards and accolades, including the Cover of the Year award from the National Dog Writers Association, U.S. Art magazine’s Artist to Watch as well as the top print of the year honors. John’s artwork is reproduced as calendars, mugs, notepads, Christmas cards and notecards. “I paint for the love of dogs the many emotions they share. Some paintings are deeper emotional metaphors than other, but my hope is that they each capture the joy and encouragement of their faithful subjects. I’m truly blessed to be able to paint every day, and am thrilled to share my enjoyment with others through my work.”
