First, Carol Baker left these messages on my repost of 'Jago Stone - The American Connection - Part Seven' using the USAF veteran's webpage, RAF Upper Heyford Brats and Friends:
'From Washington look what I found on my mom's living room … We lived in England 74-78 in Sherington.' Accompanying the text were these two images:
|Banbury Cross, Oxfordshire - Jago Stone water-colour - 1978|
|Cottages at Wroxton St Mary - Jago Stone water-colour - 1978|
A day or two later, the commentary at the bottom of the reposted American Connection - Part Seven was further enriched by this message from Dianna DAiello:
As Jessica Raber, the American artist who appeared in a Jago painting aged 5, commented yesterday when she saw these images: 'Wow! Cool palette knife pieces!'
I am blown away by being gifted these images and seeing yet more of Jago at his 'post-prison expressionist' best.
I obviously hope for more detail and stories and sharper images - but I am so grateful for what I have got - and the opportunity I now have to share this find with you, my Mailchimp readers.'
And now - in this post recycled for Upper Heyford and Croughton USAF veterans and their families - more can savour these discoveries. If you have memories of Jago or images of his artwork and would like to pass them on to me, I would love to hear - and with your permission - share. The life and achievements of this remarkable artist are worth preserving.
