Jack (John) Wesley and Hannah Green

John Wesley (1928-) and Hannah Green.
With John Wesley and Hannah Green.

On my first time in Conques I met a British artist selling his work across the church. I only remember his last name, Drew. The next morning I showed him photographs of my work; he told me there was an American artist staying in town, who would maybe appreciate seeing my work. I should meet him he said. Jack (John) Wesley and his wife Hannah Green were living in a house halfway down the steep Rue Charlemagne, the old road the pilgrims on their way to Santiago de Compostela would walk to reach the Conques Sainte-Foy abbey-church. So I looked them up and we had dinner a few times down at a little restaurant on the Dourdou river, next to the Roman bridge.

Some kilometers downstream there was the village of Grand Vabre, at the confluence of the Dourdou and Lot. Camas, the was shoemaker there; and I ordered a pair of beech clogs - studded with nails shaped like a fly. I still have them - plus the nails he gave me; I still must do it, but the soles have probably worn too thin by now.
