I have put my own twist on this famous painting….Hope you like it…

The painting Girl with a Pearl Earring (Dutch: Het Meisje met de Parel) is one of Dutch painter Johannes Vermeer’s masterworks and as the name implies, uses a pearl earring for a focal point. Today the painting is kept in the Mauritshuis gallery in the Hague. It is sometimes referred to as “the Mona Lisa of the North” or “the Dutch Mona Lisa”.
