SCOTIA, N.Y. -- A Scotia woman is looking for answers after finding decade's old portraits crafted by her late mother.
Gina Sauter of Scotia first noticed the pastels when she was cleaning out her mother's house after her passing. Now, she is trying to discover who the people were that her mother, Estelle Sauter, immortalized in the portraits, many of which were drawn 30 years ago.
"I don't want any money," said Gina Sauter. "We just want someone to recognize them. I'm not sure why she didn't give the pastels to the subjects. Perhaps they just posed for her in one of her art classes."
Some of the pastels are framed and others not completely finished. All are wrapped in newspaper dating back to the early 1980's.
There are 60 pieces in total, but only a few with names on them.
On the bottom of one portrait, Freida and Chuck Eddy is written, and Sauter believes they may be husband and wife.
Her goal now is to reunite the portraits with the families she believes would truly enjoy having them.
