Street Painting Juliet

Cuong Nguyen says:
"Last year in San Rafael, California, I painted a portrait of actress Olivia Hussey, an actress best known for her Golden Globe-winning role as Juliet in Franco Zeffirelli's 1968 film version of ‘Romeo and Juliet’. I have loved Olivia Hussey since I was a little boy and I was lucky enough to meet her in person last April in San Francisco. I promised her that I would do a portrait of Juliet at the San Rafael festival, and the painting turned out great and I got lots of compliments from the viewers."
