gypsy girl {oil by marilynn z. nielson}

gypsy girl by marilynn z. nielson, 11 x 14 oil, Sold

Though I don’t do portraits, I couldn’t resist the request to do this one.  Perhaps it was because it reminded me of Vermeer’s painting of The Girl With the Pearl Earring.  The girl is the granddaughter of Roy and Martha Remund and she had dressed up as a gypsy for Halloween.  She looked so charming, the family couldn’t resist taking a picture, and I couldn’t resist painting it. ~ marilynn
