Celebrity Portrait

For the next 3 days, I will be sharing a different celebrity portrait that I have painted, along with their celebrity photo.

Today, I am posting my portrait of Cameron Diaz. Her family settled in Ybor, Tampa, before moving to California. Her father is Cuban and her mother English, Scots-Irish, German and Cherokee. She began modeling at age 16, then at age 21 she auditioned for The Mask, which became one of the biggest films of that year. In 2010, Forbes ranked Diaz as the richest female celebrity, ranking her number 60 among the wealthiest 100.

About the artist…
In her years of practice, Italian-American artist Holly Picano has explored beauty and desire through images of female faces. Studying Visual Communication from the Art Institute of Fort Lauderdale, Picano incorporates a commercial feel to her images of women. One of the artist’s most notable pieces is a red headed Ms. Behave, created for the Peachy Canyon Winery wine label. The recipient of an Artist Enhancement Grant from the State of Florida, Picano continues her commitment to the arts through her paintings of female faces.
