John Constable contributed a meeting with God in the painting Clouds, 1822. His cloud paintings are a contribution to the Holy divine garden of the heart. You feel with John Constable he must be in love with a woman, maybe they were painted on his wedding ascension to the dear young lady he loved in his youth. They do have resonances of love taking us on a journey deeply through the heart to God and almost to death, John Constable must have been deeply in love. "Painting is but another word for feeling", wrote John Constable and gave us a delightful array of the love in his heart in 1822 with the garden of the sky or the love domain in Heaven, the Heaven of the garden of love.
