"Amira", 2 inches x 2 inches, pencil on polymin
(note: polymin and ivorine are both synthetic substitutes for ivory, a popular surface used most often by miniaturists in the past)
(enlargement for detail)
This miniature pencil portrait of Amira is done for my friends Danielle and Max for how they once allowed an upright piano to pass through their window!
