While studying art in Paris, John Hafen turned to his faith for empowerment. In a letter to his wife, he wrote, “What I have seen is of inestimable benefit to me. It has humbled me as a child. I feel that I will have to commence at the bottom and submit myself to my Heavenly Father. In times past I have found ideas, how one should paint, and what kind of aim a painter should have. … Whether I will ever pass that point or even approach it, will depend wholly upon my faithfulness to the Gospel and the assistance of Almighty God.”
