A pretty lady from the 1920's, judging by her hairstyle. Too bad she has that rusty staple along the side of her nose. This fan is not signed, so we have no idea who painted her. She looks like magazine illustrations from the 20's and 30's though, and the quality of the painting is so good that I imagine the illustrator was well known in his or her day.
Thanks to all of you who have sent get well wishes. I am still not able to stay out of bed for very long, but it is always great to come here and see your email and comments. THANKS!
