Completed in 1988 'Jocelyn's Gift' is a 24"x 30" glossy oil still-life of a small corner of the Simonis home when they lived over on Irvine Avenue. 

Of all the various objects one notes the little white bear at the base of the lamp next to the ash tray. Even the arm of the chair beside the unique coffee table that has everything sitting on it, brings to mind recollections of the green felt material on the two easy chairs Grandma and Grandpa passed on down to us all those years ago. (Trust me, my sisters and I were very hard on the furniture so this was their most sound choice when it came to picking out a living room ensemble.)

But so yeah, this was John’s easy chair; where he sat and relaxed in the evening. He sketched here. He read here. He watched the Super bowl and the Stanley Cup playoffs here. And I remember, at the bottom of that little white bear was an inscription commemorating his youngest daughter Jocelyn's birth in 1973; hence the title.

One of the things Dad applied to his works was working with the lighting in context with a given scene. It is obvious to the viewer of that endeavor here as the shadows direction make up a significant part of the end product.
