M. Abigale is part of my,"Ladies & Gents" Illustrated Victorian Portrait series.

M. Abigale, age 33, widow. Very lonely woman

Who is M. Abigale?

She has been having a very tough time in her life. She lost her husband and only daughter in a boat accident about a 3 years ago. She weeps daily. She misses her husband and daughter so much... but knows her life must go on. In order to push forward, she has decided to give herself one last shot at love. She has joined "The Ladies & Gents Victorian Dating Service". She prays someday that her heart will mend.

The original illustration was created by me (Debra Styer) with watercolor and gouache on illustration board. It was inspired by my love of history and 19th Century Photography.

The artwork on this limited edition print is 6 X 8 and is printed on archival velvet fine art paper with archival inks. There is a nice white border for easy framing.

The print includes a lovely antique white mat ready to pop into a 8 x 10 frame.

The print will be shipped to you in a protective sleeve with extra backing in a sturdy flat mailing envelope.

All prints are signed and numbered by the artist.

(Frame not included)

The Ladies & Gents Dating Service is a place for lovelorn people to meet. The series has 40 lovely Ladies & Gents (so far) consisting of various backgrounds and occupations looking for the same thing...love. Because of the class restrictions of Victorian Era these people couldn't usually meet and fall in love, but we are changing all that, and letting their hearts decide.
