Thank you all for your wonderful compliments. I'm going to visit Mom tomorrow and will take some pictures of both of them together to post back here.

Hi everyone. Just got back from Mom's so here's a pic of them together. I had to take them down from the wall to get them away from the glare from the window. This pic is not super clear because of the no glare glass but it gives you an idea of what they are.  I also got Mom's original and put it with hers so you could see how it started out. Thank you all again for the encouragement.

It looks wonderful and your mother is absolutely stunning! Right out of an old movie - the kind you go "Awwww" at.

So I thought it was awsome before but with the pic of your Dad and the original. Wonderful! I got teary-eyed and I don't even know your family beyond your post. No doubt your Mother loves it.
