The painting on display is a portrait of my grandparents, around 1934.
My grandfather was a school teacher.
He owned 54 acres in Fairfax County. VA.
The property was original Sharper's acres, my grandmother's great-great-grandfather.
He, Daniel Sharper, paid for his freedom and bought the land on April 6, 1825.
His head stone, along with a lot of my other relatives', are located at Pleasant Grove Historical Cemetary, down the street from Tyson's II Mall, VA.
