FINE American Watercolor painting "Portrait of a Girl: the Artist at Six" SIGNED

Beautifully painted American watercolor portrait of me, at six years of age, my Russian / Polish heritage of wearing fine hand-knitted hats showing in this painting! Very soft colors imbue a sereneness to this painting.
Rich, Realist in feel, the natural skin tones and my smiling expression grabs the viewer to ponder more about me, the artist. This painting was painted by me from a combination of old photographs of me at six years old......
This watercolor is hand painted by me ******IN 2014*****and signed and dated lower left. It is painted on Garza hand pressed fine watercolor paper from Spain and is 8 3/4 x 11 inches OR SO. I love this particular Garza paper because you attain beautiful results even with watercolor.
****I list my paintings in the 1800-1899 category, because frankly I am not happy with the quality of the paintings in the 'modern category by the artist', so I list mine here. They uphold the same standards 19c American painters had, and I am proud of that.
