Remember that little MTV thing I went to? Well, when I was there I met many great people, and a few who have subsequently asked me to paint portraits for them. The first of these celebrity portraits is for actress/musician Renee Olstead.

At the MTV Movie Awards Gifting Suite

You might recognize Renee from the TV Series Still Standing, the movie 13 Going on 30, or most recently (and currently) as Madison Cooperstein on The Secret Life of The American Teenager. She’s an amazing jazz singer, with a voice that belies her youth.

And she’s an animal lover.

And she’s nominated as one of Peta’s Sexiest Vegetarian Celebrities of 2010.

And today is her birthday.

Ella Fitzgerald
