This Summer has been a very busy time for me. First the renovations downstairs followed by a variety of visitors and to top it off I am working on a show at the Alex Dufresne Gallery in Callander Ontario. This picture is actually for our friend Linda. The little sculpture was made by an old friend Mieke Coppens Frehe. My sister brought it for me from Holland where I had left it. Mieke made this harlequin after a trip we had made with a group of fellow students through France in the Summer of 1958.It was a very memorable trip and this piece was made after we visited Vaison la Romaine in the south of France. The harlequin was the "master of ceremony" at the finale of a great festival in the town, which ended in the old Roman amphitheatre.
