The Old Painting...

I bought this Old Painting, from a neighbor, at her garage sale, maybe, 20 years ago.... It had been found in an attic, of an old Church, that was going down....no stretcher...they had it hanging by it's canvas, with stick pins, into the garage wall... It's condition, is on the ruff side...but, no matter.... I have always had it hanging, somewhere in the house... it was in the bedroom, for many years...then, when John got the addition finished, it move out there....it's pretty large... over two feet wide, and four feet tall...It touched my heart, the moment I laid eyes on it.... I did a little research on it, shortly after I bought it...to no avail... Folks thought a Nun probably painted it...or at least a woman....it isn't signed....They thought the artist was an amateur...I think the artist was amazing... He or She...really touched me....I've had friends offer to restore it...I guess...ultimately...it just fits best in the house..'as found'... I guess, I don't see the damage when I look at it... just the Soulfulness...
I'm on the road, today.... Tree goes up, tomorrow! Ya Hoo!
Have a Wonderful Wednesday!
