Dutch Lady in Collar (Nelly van Nieuwenhuijzen)

I couldn't resist using a wonderful photographic portrait of Nelly van Nieuwenhuijzen to create this painting. The collar is Nelly's creation and it evoked the wonderful portraits by Frans Hals. The glasses, also irresistible, are signature Nelly. I hope you like this, Nelly. Tot ziens.

This is Nelly to a "T"! Wonderful resemblance, and your very special style!
