The Queen Sits for Her Portrait


This afternoon, I was privileged to paint the Queen's portrait. She looks stunning in her lavender wig and cloud of blue silk. This little jewel is acting double duty as a card from a secret friend gift I will soon be mailing out!
Original watercolor based on an extant portrait of Marie Antoinette.
