Mystery Woman~



This picture I found is marked Lady Jane Grey. But a nice neighbor from Vashon Island told me it isn't Lady Jane. I thought she looked like Marie Antionette and so does she? Anyone know? As soon as I know who it is I can list it in my etsy shop. :) Thanks!!!

The mystery woman is Lady Sofia Charlotte Sheffield:

When I saw it, I thought it resembled a Gainsborough portrait, and sure enough, it is based on one of his paintings. It looks like it's a modern reproduction of it--much prettier than the original model!

Are you starting to do pillows? I love how this turned out!

Hope you're doing well :)
