      well ive been doing alot of looking for the artist and found her living in st louis mo in 1910 on the census her occupation is artist [an illistrator for the globe democrat news paper]
      she married another artist dean sidney smith in 1915 and and died in 1916 following an operation in new york where her husband had an art studio
      shes buried in kansas city where her sister lived
      so my mystery has been solved but ill still look for more info on my pretty lady
