A kept man
A continuation of my "Flower wife" series which celebrates the life and beauty of women, who often appear secondary in photographs from the early 1900s. The flowers represent natural beauty, but also strength, as flowers return season after season in full bloom.
Embroidery is created by hand, directly onto the photograph, using French cotton embroidery thread. The first two images feature the embroidery up close; the latter photos show the piece completed with loose threads held by the figures' hands. The threads can be rearranged as desired in frame.
The vintage photograph postcard measures 4"x5.5" and will arrive in a complimentary white frame with acrylic back, which allows the artwork to be viewed from both sides. Artwork is signed in pencil.
Note: Framed artwork was photographed under a suncatcher for a bit of rainbow fun, but the frame and mat are both white.
