I had the opportunity to paint a portrait of Melissa McCarthy for her new film “The Boss”.
This hilarious film is the story of Michelle Darnell (McCarthy) a self-made wealthy business women who finds herself in jail, charged with insider trading. She is finally released and determined to make a new life – which proves to not be quite as easy as she first thought. In an effort to rebrand herself she gets mixed up in a brownie war she never bargained for.
This 5-foot portrait was an incredibly fun one to paint. From her awesome hair to the gorgeous fur stole she wore, the whole concept was full of sass and attitude! In the film the painting appears hanging in Darnell’s office during a hilarious scene in which her assistant is helping her whiten her teeth.
