    This is my absolute favorite, regardless of condition! Story goes that my grandmother drew this of my mother--as both the mother and child--back in the early 50's. An unfortunate tea pitcher incident has damaged the piece and I just have not found the time or right person to restore it.

    The price on back? That would be where my Aunt held a garage sale while my grandparents were gone one Saturday morning. Saturday evening was spent going door to door getting the stuff back! Thank goodness the next door neighbor bought this one!

      Thank you! Granny actually did a pretty good job figuring out what Mom would look like as an adult---not exact, but close.

      She must have been pretty talented! Did she mainly paint pictures of people or other scenery as well?

      Found out who the artist is: sandu lieberman from Romania. This piece if original, is worth a lot of money
