"Dedicated to Miss Chloe"
It appears I am falling in love with doing portraits!  This is one of my nieces, 
and it looks just like her!  The challenge in a portrait is capturing that one
line or shadow that makes the the face "her", and her alone!  It is so exciting watching
the personality arrive, brushstroke by brushstroke.
Watercolor medium, on Arches 140# cold press.
