Ancestor Makeover

Meet Great Great Grandpa

This portrait hung in our home for years and was showing some serious signs of wear. The colors were fading and much of the detail was deteriorating

Then I found the original photo that was used to make the portrait:

So I had a new image produced in the correct size for the frame, and replaced the worn out print

It was a special surprsie for my Dear Husband...who has a strong family resemblance to this ancestor:
similar nose, same chin, and very distinctive eyes.
