A Portrait of Frank Sinatra

Posted in Entertainment with tags on November 19, 2009 by franksinatratribute

An artist in California named Bruni Sablan has created over 1300 paintings of legendary music stars and musicians in what she calls her Jazz Masters Series.  Born in Brazil to a Sicilian Italian father and Lebanese mother, Ms. Sablan is a fine artist who was introduced to jazz by her father, and has also done some singing herself.

Among her portrait subjects are Louis Armstrong, Count Basie, Ella Fitzgerald, Ray Charles, Peggy Lee, Nat King Cole, and even Michael Jackson.  But perhaps the subject who has inspired the most portraits is Frank Sinatra.  Each portrait of F.S. is named for one of the songs he performed, like the one above, which is called Everything Happens To Me.

To see all of the Sinatra portraits along with the many other works of Bruni Sablan, visit her website, and for a performer re-creating Sinatra on stage, visit the home of an established Frank Sinatra Tribute Performer, often known as a Frank Sinatra Impersonator.
