My friend Sandra also (see previous blog), had this old painting hanging in her dining room. It too was from her Mother's estate.

If you will look closer, the matting around the painting is made out of a grocery bag. I have never seen anything like that. The glass is wavy which indicates to me that the framing is very old. All Sandra knew about it is it was something her Mother purchased at an antique store.
