putting several photographic images together to make a new pencil portrait

Here is the completed artwork

Here is a photograph of an artwork while it was in progress. I only had some rather small and blurry snapshots from the 1950's to work with. I scanned them and enlarged them closer to the size they'd be in the portrait. I used several photographs as reference to get the likenesses.

A portrait like this would be approximately $300 currently (a little more than a basic two person portrait, because of the lace wedding dress, veil, and the need to combine so many photos.)
