The story about this painting

Madelyn’s grandmother had a portrait done of her daughter around five years of age.  Madelyn’s mother saved the dress she wore in her own portrait from when she was a little girl, in hopes that one day she would grow up and have a little girl of her own who would one day ware this same dress. 

She did, the baby was named Madelyn, and when she to be about five years old, she contacted me. This was the end result.

This picture shows their portraits together.
