Celebrity Portrait

For the next 2 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 Bettie Page, America’s original pinup model. On the left is a photo by Bunny Yeager, and on the right is a painting I created with shades of blue and green. Born in Tennessee, she was one of six children and later moved to New York City to pursue a career as an actress. Bettie met a photographer who suggested she cut her bangs, which became her signature look.

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.
