Portrait Obsession

Another wonderful portrait in this image above via Cottage Living Magazine. I am completely obsessed with vintage lady portraits at the moment as you all no doubt can tell. Lyn over at Paris Hotel Boutique has a couple currently available but I must say nice ones are proving to be a little hard to track down. Even good old reliable Ebay isn't throwing any my way!!

The display in front of the portrait makes it even more beautiful. In the beginning I thought that they were part of the painting. The 'yellow' makes a great complimentary color to the black in the painting.
