Here, we see the two Miss Leavens; each girl was 16 years old.
Kylie died in a car crash in Iowa,
Harriet in an 1815 portrait from Connecticut.
Harriet's necklace & purse are lined in scarlet reds.
Kylie's myspace states that she was a good friend.
Stylized clouds float behind their heads, suggesting the halos that awaited them.
The 2 Miss Leavens - no doubt, in Heaven, I paint their portraits on ivory.
Two perfect likenesses, teen-aged your highnesses, soft-focused by death, by history.
I am the limner. I make portraits in minature.
These 2 girls were separated by 200 years, but still they are sisters.
"When this you see, remember me.
Bear me in your mind.
What others say when I'm away-
Speak of me as you find.
Resigned to dust - don't pity us."
Forever pretty & mysterious.
