What's old is new again

I love art and the history of art (it was actually my other major in college - Illustration & Art History) and for kicks I decided to paint a modern day person using a classic pose from art history.  Angelina Jolie is the person I chose to use for this piece.  It is done in the traditional method using oils painted on a 16" x 20" piece of masonite board. The painting I opted to reference is Johannes Vermeer's "Girl with a Pearl Earring" - shown below.
