Amazing Grace

This is Grace. She is my self portrait for today. Although she may not look very much like me...sometimes during those rare and fortunate moments, I'll catch a glimpse of her looking back at me through the mirror of my soul.

The wing, background and flesh tones have to be finessed. I just did a quick color wash here, with aquarelle crayons.
