This portrait was painted by my Grandma,Wilma Norton,in the early 50's.It was painted for the sole purpose of hanging above the baptismal tank at the church I grew up in.It measures 6,1/2 ft. wide by 4,1/2 ft. high. long after she had passed,the church built a new building and moved on. While attending a funeral a few years ago,at the new church,I was told,that the portrait had been kept,and was waiting in the basement for someone in the family to pick it up. That was me,cause I was the only one with a wall big enough in my house to hang it!I hope it show's up,but if you look closely,just above the large waterfall,there is a "cross" hidden,and above that,in the white of the mountain peak,is Jesus in white with his arms extended.(I like to think Gramma did this on purpose)
