Gypsy Woman

7 x 7 Pastel on Wallis Paper, 16 x 16 Framed
$150 + s/h (Framed)

This could also be titled "Free Spirit."  I saw this woman get on the ferry in Boothbay, and saw her again on Monhegan.  She caught my eye immediately because of the way she was dressed.  It brought back to mind my time living in the Village (Greenwich Village) in the 60's.  So Cool!  She must have had on about 10 layers of clothing, and that wonderful turban which I found really hard to capture in such a small painting.  She didn't exactly pose when she saw me, but she gave me that great smile.  I'd like to paint a larger version of this.
