Found an Article on Edward Hopper.

Whilst reading LIFE Magazines on I found an article talking about one of my favorite artists--Edward Hopper. I found it in the May 3, 1937 edition--you can read it here. I've always enjoyed his use of light--it always seemed to me that his canvas was illuminated internally. Below are some examples of his work. Be sure to read the article too--he almost didn't paint because he wasn't well received at first--imagine if he would've just given up..."Self-Portrait" (1925-1930)"Nighthawks" (1942)"Early Sunday Morning" (1930)"Chop Suey" (1929)

"Cape Cod Afternoon" (1936)
