Folk Art Portrait of Little A.E. Crehore

(I wonder if this little girl is a relative of mine? I know some early Crehores lived in Milton, MA. If this portrait of little A.E. Crehore could talk, it would say,"I am worth $216,000".)
"This watercolor and ink on paper by John Ritto Penniman (1782-1841) of a young girl is labeled by the artist “A.E. Crehore AEt. 1 year & 6 mo.” She is wearing a yellow dress and standing in a landscape with her dog and the Charles River, the Boston State House, and the Park Street Church in the background. Penniman signed and dated it “J.R.P. Pinxit 1836.” The sitter lived in Milton, Massachusetts." read more article here
