What started out as a rescued piece of wood and newspaper became this Gypsy Woman. She's adorned with vintage jewelry that I found at thrift stores and modeled with newspaper and plaster of paris strips. She's extremely mixed media because I like to believe that old Gypsy fortune tellers were very ecclectic. She's a piece of wall art that doubles as a wishing well...

You are an amazing artist! This is exactly how I would picture a gypsy to be, a mixture of items. Your work is very inspiring! I love how on the back you can see the playing card.
