Linnea of Darkover miniature

This miniature portrait nametag hits on all the motifs that made up the Darkover mythos. Red hair, grey eyes, Renaissance clothing, bladed weapons (she's holding a stiletto), heraldry, magic crystals, and romantic Celtic styling. Darkover may have faded, but the components are still going strong in the fan art you might find on deviantART or other fantasy sites.

Linnea's nametag is watercolor on Fabriano paper, 3 1/2" x 2 1/4", Summer 1983.

Thanks Tristan!
Do you recognize who it is?
I haven't seen or heard from her in many, many years but she was a regular at DarkoverCon.
