Fiona of Amber miniature

This is not a portrait of the person who commissioned this nametag miniature. It's a character portrait of "Fiona of Amber," one of the scheming royal family of Roger Zelazny's "Amber" series. She was one of my client's favorite fantasy characters. Ms. Client also asked for a lioness holding a green rose as a heraldic device. My records point out that Ms. Client didn't pay me for the job for a year and a half. As with many fantasy and science fiction fans of that era, she was constantly in financial and emotional turmoil and moved often. The latest information I have for her (2005) says that she reviews erotic fiction and is knowledgeable about "kinky" practices and culture.

"Fiona" nametag miniature is ink and watercolor on Fabriano paper, 3 1/2" x 2 1/4", February 1978.
