Nick’s friend’s ambitious artwork project for Church in Aldershot

My very good friend Robert Senior has been working in his spare time, and over several years, on a project to furnish the bare walls either side of the nave at St Joseph’s Church in Aldershot, with a connected series of religious artwork – oil on canvass. Last Saturday I visited the church to record with my camera the installation of the last major canvass  – there is just one small painting to go.
