Tribute to Karel, Karel Gomes

    Tribute to my Sculptor Master: Today is the day I was told Karel has no more address on earth!

    We were neighbours before, for so long...

    That he was an established sculptor, I could not predict.

    Passing the windows of his house-boat was a treat...

    His work was a treat...

    Him existing, there, close and yet, the most distant achievements I could consider...

    He urged me to attend his classes.

    He changed my life entirely... Forever...

    All about our history is a treat...

    I felt I could only pay him back by becoming a pupil he could be proud of while working on a monumental sculpture commissioned by my City, Haarlem.

    The day ( 14 7 2011) he appeared in my Atelier and, as usual, offered his help, I felt blessed ...

    Rest in Peace Karel but may you not (never) leave us...!
