Michel of Lake Forest Park, Seattle, unwraps a painting by his grandfather Michel Jolivet while waiting in line for the Antiques Roadshow appraisal event at the Washington State Convention Center in Seattle Saturday August 18, 2012. Jolivet, from Switzerland, painted the piece in Geneva circa 1920, and moved to Quebec where he became well-known for his work in ceramics. The one-day Antiques Roadshow event brought over 6,000 people with over 12,000 items to be appraised by about 70 appraisers for an estimated three episodes of the television show's 17th season, starting in 2013.
