The Immigrant....

This is my Grandfather, "The Immigrant."
His Name was Julius Ludwig Adolf Von Pahlke.  They dropped the "Von" upon entering the U.S. A.
His eyes looked back at mine as I painted this.  Familiar eyes.  Shaped like mine.  Colored like my Mother's eyes.  His ragged little coat, and cap looked a bit small, but "serviceable" to me.
