Raymond Theel was my grandfather. I have his self portrait done after the fire and, from what I have been told, after he suffered a stroke explaining why his painting shows him in full beard. I also have a water color he did as a wedding or anniversary gift to his brother Percival. I do not know the age of the painting but it is rather unique with heavily applied colors. It is a still life of a vase of peonies and is in its original frame. It is somewhat fragile as I can see where some of the paint is cracking under the glass.
