Description

Matted and framed.

Portrait of a woman wearing a hat with her back to viewer as she gazes over her left shoulder toward the left edge on tan and green hued background. Her blue, curled, upswept hair is tucked under a tan hued hat with blue hued decoration. Red hued eyes look out of red hued face under blue arched eyebrows. She is dressed in black with brown hued wave design and high ruffled gray collar; green scarf drapes over her shoulders; pink and gray hued gloves with four flowers on lattice lace design on back. She raises her gloved hands in front of her, right hand holding her left.
