Silhouette Restoration

Doug McQ. of Apopka, FL brought in this Silhouette that was made of his wife Lynn-Dee when she was just 4 years old. He was hoping I might be able to make a nice restoration of it, as it was literally crumbling apart.

Doug brought in the original cutting (a tiny thing, maybe 2x3 inches mounted on a 5x7 inch card) plus this scanned photocopy for me to work from.

I cut it for him there on the spot, trying my best to replicate the hand that originally made the Silhouette. The original work was created in 1950, and signed by an artist named LaBoche. If anyone knows anything about the artist in question, do let me know!
