The photographer painted in her eyebrows (for some odd reason, because I know she had her own). She must have been about 40 in this photo.
She is the woman who painted all the black toleware pieces that I have in my guest bathroom, seen here:
She didn't find her artistic side until she was in her late 40's; she started painting and rug-hooking and became so good at it she was asked to teach classes.
I have written before about her prowess in the kitchen. She was an excellent and inventive cook. Too bad we lived several hundred miles from her because that meant we couldn't sample her food often enough!
