Photo: My Mother's Old Portrait

My mother got this from my grandmother the other day. This was a portrait done of her when she was young, which I found odd since we live in the age of photographs and I could not imagine her staying still for an artist. Apparently they took a photo and the artist did his work based on that.

Is it possible it’s a hand-colored photo? Wow!

The portrait of your mother is beautiful, Adam! And so classy ~ Way better than a photo! I've always longed to have a painted portrait of myself. Treasure it!!!
