I found these two photos in an old oval frame at my mom’s house. I rescued them and the frame. My mom wants the top photo back, I think I’ll hand deliver it rather than mail it. But that bottom photo – I think I am going to repair the oval frame and display this photo in it. Estelle is my great grandmother. She was likely the person who hand painted these with oil paints. She left a wonderful legacy of photos. I am so grateful.
Lately I’ve been sharing a lot of photos from my Dad’s side of the family. Today I thought I would bounce back over to my Mom’s side.
This is my Mom’s Grandpa – Francis Henry Duval. The photo was taken and then hand painted with oil paints by his wife Estelle, my great grandmother. She was very talented. I love looking at her work.
