Dear Terrance,

Thanks for sending this.  The paintings are excellent.  I especially like the illustration .to "Sing Heavenly Muse" in the Elephant Folio.  But why arrange Milton's poetry as prose?  Was this a matter of necessity or choice?

All best wishes,

John Leonard

  From Terrance Lindall:
  I was delighted and received with humility and yet great pride this message a short time ago from Dr. Wickenheiser (he turned 68 on the 10th of this month) after he opened the HUGE box of signed framed Giclee prints of the Paradise Lost Altarpiece: https://sites.google.com/site/terrancelindallsparadiselost/home/paradise-lost-project-annual-newsletter

  Dear Terrance,

  Have no doubt about my pride over your paintings; they are superior and second to none and will stand the test of time; of that I am absolutely confident.

  I glowed in sharing my pride in the voice message I left for you, but let me simply reiterate  the general thrust of my message here: Milton has found in you his most profound artist and illustrator in the late 20th and early 21st century.  My original feelings have never changed and I couldn't be more proud to have played a small role with you as Milton's great artist and also in your great capacity to bring to life the story of Milton's epic.  I say this more effectively, I am confident, in my Commentary than I do here.

  I remain deeply touched  and absolutely convinced that the project is the right way to go and that many will be touched in ways otherwise new to them.  You have brought Milton's epic alive in untold ways, and to say this is to say more than I otherwise ever thought I would say. The project is right and I remain committed to it and to its message and manner of delivery. Thank you, thank you, thank you for affording me the opportunity to work with you in this special way.

  With profound humility and heartfelt gratitude, I remain your friend and ardent admirer,
