The image is based on an actual photograph of a woman from the late 50's early 60's era. This is unfinished...and I plan to add a lot more to it. I will finish satin stitching the flowers, add more color other than black to the hair, incorporate french knots inside the frame, and finish the frame as well. A lot of work to still go on it...
