Mariah Carey Portrait Series

I have created a portrait series about Mariah Carey for a dear friend. The pictures refer to her albums and career, so originally, I have painted 15 images. Here, I share 9 of them with you. My friend really likes the diva and wanted to see her changing through time. When I paint a portrait of a real person, it is important for me to see and understand her (or his) personality. I was a bit challenging for me because generally, I listen to quite different kinds of music. But I recognize her talent and respect for her career. The most grateful part was reflecting her beauty and feminity which I generally like putting into art. My personal favorite is "The Emancipation of Mimi 2005" so I share also the process of it. And here is a nice song from 1991: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NrJEFrth27Q
