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. This special piece features the mother as a wallflower, but introduces a daughter who offers hope for a better, bolder future.
Embroidery is created by hand, directly onto the photograph, using French cotton embroidery thread.
The vintage photograph measures 4"x5.5" and will arrive in a complimentary black floating 8"x10" glass frame, which showcases the back of the photograph in addition to the front.
