MAIRE OF MEZIN


This is a painting of our Maire.
In France the maire wears a "double casquette" (two hats) because he is an agent of l’Etat (the state) as well as being an agent of the commune.
Confused?
So am I.
Best look it up on Wiki if you're really interested.
Anyway, I did the painting from a photograph in the local paper.
