I am starting to notice the creative way in which you show some of the face in your work-- mystery seems important.

I hope I have it right since the image is small, that you started off with one of my favorite subject matter and items I love to collect, a map.
As always the calligraphy is a wonderful addition and especially the protractor/half circle which nicely balances with her fan.
I am not sure yet as to the two flowers, primarily because of their size. Maybe a bit smaller? It just feel top-heavy. Maybe play around with it.
Since the woman appears to be of Spanish descent, maybe a flower that has a Mediterranean background. A sunflower comes to mind. Maybe a little research is needed.

Thank you for sharing

After a little further contemplation I am revisiting my comment on the two flowers I felt were to large and top heavy.
I am withdrawing my remark as to their size size I ailed to take into account your artistic style. I will remark that adjusting the colour slightly of one so that it does not feel like the same flower on the other side.
You may also wish to flip and rotate a little more so that they differ a little more.
