He returned to Gorleston and to painting on retirement in 2001 and became a member of the Great Yarmouth & District Society of Artists.
Since then he has exhibited with Barbados Arts Council in the Barbados Hilton, Barbados Waterfront Restaurant in Bridgetown and the Gallery of Caribbean Art.
John has two paintings in National Trust properties: Washington Old Hall, Tyne & Wear (the home of the Washington family) and Barbados Portvale Sugar Museum.
