Family Memento

How to commemorate a family member or special time in your life? In Honduras (and beyond) you need look no further than your neighborhood portrait artist. Perhaps this is a lost art but many of these paintings are still displayed often beside a diploma with a little picture attached.
This picture is of the mister's grandmother and uncle. Reportedly, they never owned these clothes or accessories, but were dressed up by the painter. Antiquated airbrushing maybe...
Hopefully this tradition will stay alive with future generations.
