An Artist in the Family

DH's great grandmother was an artist. We have several of her pictures. Using the dates I know I date this late 1800's to early 1900's. DH remembers this one hanging in his grandfather's basement. Please join Suzanne at Coloradolady to view more vintage thingie thursday posts.
