A likeness taken from her passport photo of 1934. I never knew her , she died in childbirth when I was 13 months old. I do have a photograph of her in this hat but her face was not clear.

Beautiful work.  Your Mom was lovely.  You did excellent on her face.  I struggle so much with faces.  Your Mom's here is really good.  I think you did really well with the clothes too.  The folds and shadows are great.
