    This is pretty wild... my dad found this about 10 years ago in New Smyrna Beach, FL. It's a painting of Our Lady of Guadalupe, patron saint of the Americas. It's dated 1768. I'm trying to find out the right person(s) or organization for this. There must have been a Spanish mission there at some point. He also found a piece of eight in the same location.

    You've got a small fortune in your hands.. choose what you do with it wisely.
    They say if you play a Microsoft CD backwards, you hear satanic messages. Thats nothing, cause if you play it forwards, it installs Windows.

    That is truly amazing! What a find! Its a beautiful painting. I hope it finds a good home and is protected. Its so neat when things like this are found and preserved for everyone to enjoy. And its an honor to artists of the past.

    Thanks for sharing them. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img]

    First get it appraised by a few antique dealers, and then see if you can get it cleaned and restored a bit.
