Habay-la-Neuve

(2004)


This is the Chateau du Parc at Habaye-la-Neuve in Southern Belgium. My wife and I attended a wedding there in the summer of 2004. This painting will be sent as a gift to the mayor of this town which is twined with our local Louisiana town of Cottonport. The older citizens spoke very warmly of the role Americans played in the Battle of the Ardrennes (the Bulge). And Habaye still has a wall called the Wall of Liberation where
the first American soldiers came in to liberate the town
