Description: A well-done, if conventional, watercolor portrait of a bearded man with glasses and wearing a cap, is changed into a most unconventional portrait by a group of pencil-drawn dolls on the cover mat toward which his gaze is directed. The lower right corner of the watercolor is cut out to provide additional space for the dolls and the signature is on the watercolor, which is mounted to the back mat. Elson worked in Ohio, was born in Akron and grew up in Cuyahoga Falls. She was a lifetime member of the Ohio Watercolor Society.
