For the next 7 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 Mariah Carey, who became famous for her five-octave vocal range and chart topping songs of the 90’s. “One Sweet Day”spent 16 weeks on the Billboard Hot 100, which is the longest running number one song in US history.
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.
