Last, but definitely not least, John Clare… what to say about John, other than, like Samuel Ageborn Hencher, he is the real deal when it comes to painting. This is a seasoned painter who understands his context very well, yet is well rooted in that awesome inner child of his, that provides him with a goldmine intuitive style to fall in love with – I could gaze upon his paintings all day long, something soft comes over me, I kind of melt, like looking at a beautiful warm view from the holiday hacienda of a close friend. If I could, I would buy a villa with aquamarine shutters and a veranda, and fill it with John Clare paintings… and that people, is my idea of heaven on earth.
