Eloise was a self-taught artist. She would spend hours painstakingly copying the works of the greats, learning how they created the effects they did, working with the same tools and paint mixes, lovingly recreated with her own hands on authentic canvas, then producing her own in similar style.
When she put some of her pictures in a local charity exhibition, she was surprised they sold. And even more surprised when a man with a big smile and a fat wallet purchased much of her work.
Until she saw one of the pictures under the headline “Unknown Rembrandt discovered, worth millions.”
