SCHAAP. My wife and I were given a painting of the old covered bridge going into Alma or Fundy I believe. The artist was Gerard Schaap or something close to that. The painting is at least 35 years old and is done on some form of parchment or it may be a print. I was wondering if this person is still alive or if there are any more paintings around. Geraldine and Borden Steeves of  Coverdale ( long since passed away  ) gave us the picture. I would appreciate any info you could give me on this or suggest someone who could. Thanks,
