One of the weirdest things I've ever seen...

I've seen a lot of strange things in my day, but this takes the cake.

Directly across from my bedroom in the hallway is a painting of my grandpa that I did about 10 years ago (I actually painted it the night I found out he had died). He was my hero, I miss him every single day, so I deliberately put the painting somewhere I would see it all the time.

A few days ago, as I walked out to go to the bathroom, a glint in the painting caught my eye. I walked over and looked at it, and there was a TEAR in his eye. It isn't paint, because I used acrylic paint which is notoriously dull and it's on handmade paper, which is also very dull. And anyway, this thing has been under glass for 10 years and there has never been a shiny spot on it. This literally looks like a teardrop, it is glossy and very obvious in person (I'm not sure the photo does it justice, since the "teardrop" is also clear). It has now been there for three days. I am stunned, and confused, and I have NO idea what to make of it...
