Miss Julianna Willoughby (Romney Reproduction)

(Romney Master Reproduction). I came face to face with the original master painting by artist George Romney at the National Gallery of Art in Washington DC. It was beautiful and looked very much like my daughter, Sarah who was 4 years old at the time. I painted my impression of the original painting and put my daughter’s face on the painting. This was the first portrait I ever painted. Private Collection/NFS
