Celebrity Portrait

Ashley Judd

For the next 8 days, I will be sharing a different celebrity portrait that I have painted, along with their celebrity photo.

Today, I’m posting my portrait of Ashley Judd. The daughter of country music singer Naomi Judd, her grandfather is of Sicilian decent, and she was raised in Kentucky, where she spent most of her young life. Ashley attended 13 schools before college, tried modeling, and had her film debut in 1992, with a small role in Kuffs. She went on to appear in over 30 films. Double Jeopardy is still my personal favorite.

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.

Celebrity Portrait

For the next 13 days, I will be sharing a different celebrity portrait that I have painted, along with their celebrity photo.

Today, I’m posting Italian-American music queen Madonna. She has kept us entertained from signing on with Sire Records in 1982, and she’s still going strong with her most recent appearance at Art Basel earlier this month. She has sold more than 300 million records, and is recognized as the best-selling female recording artist of all time.

For the next 17 days, I will be sharing a different celebrity portrait that I have painted, along with their celebrity photo.

Today, I’ll start with with Italian-American pop icon Gwen Stefani. I have always been a fan of Stefani’s mezzo-soprano vocals, and her bad-girl style is somewhat reminiscent of Blondie’s Debbie Harry, with a little more fashionista flair.

Beautiful, strong, and a little punk.
