Doodled while looking at a book on early American portrait paintings. This particular painting attracted me because of the beautiful lace on her gown and cap, the artist had painted it with such delicacy. I also wanted to remember it because of her hands and the way she held her book, I'm always looking at the way people hold books as inspiration for future bookplates. Need to go back and look more closely at the left hand though, couldn't quite get it.
