carrying all before: part 2


Riding the Wind 26.7.16 Final

I would like to dedicate today’s painting to the memory of Father Jacques Hamel
cruelly murdered today as he performed morning mass at his church,
St Etienne-du-Rouvray in Normandy, France.

Mohammed Karabila, the president of Normandy’s Regional Council of the Muslim Faith, who worked with Father Hamel on an interfaith committee, described him as “a man of peace” who “dedicated his life to his ideas and religion”.

Father Hamel’s spirit is now riding the wind, a wind which we will all feel wherever we may be.


  1. What a beautiful dedication – thank you Andrew … What happened yesterday was revolting – sickening in the extreme but this peaceful man would not want anything but quiet harmonious homage paid to him and you have achieved that with grace.
