    Enjoying Samuel Palmer

    Down in London for a Greenbelt meeting and enough time to enjoy the Samuel Palmer exhibition at the British Museum. I've heard so much about him (mainly through Iain Sinclair): wonderful to see his work, which seems to me to be to painting what Gerard Manley Hopkins' works are to poetry - startling and refreshing expressions of the inner life of nature. Or as many others have put it, visionary art. Beautiful with it.
