Life in Old South Central Alabama

My photo
South of Birmingham, Alabama, United States
I am an antique trader in central Alabama....I love old houses... My log home was built in 1817 by my ancestors Benjamin and Hannah Harless Wilson .............. Outside the house are herb gardens and lots of pass-along plants................ No one in Alabama is in a hurry about anything......... Visitors think that the garden needs weeding and the furniture needs polishing....I am a direct descendant of Joseph Towne, whose two sisters Rebecca Towne Nurse and Mary Towne Easty were hanged in Salem, Massachusetts, in 1692 as witches. I am also a direct descendant of Pocahontas and husband John Rolfe.

Portrait of a young boy from Valhalla, NY

A portrait of a young boy has arrived from an auction in NY.  He has no frame and no identification for either himself or the artist who painted him. 

There will need to be a touch of dark infilling around his collar.

The canvas measures 28 1/4 x 23  1/4.   

He will need a gold gesso frame with an oval insert to fit. That hunt might take a while.
