       Portrait of Michael Jackson drew about 26 hours. It is a portrait of an exceptionally difficult. Drawing Michael gives me great joy. From a child I loved him draw. He was always for me a great authority and a brilliant artist. I love his music.

Hi. I greet you after a long break. Today, I want to commend the new Portet wykonamym traditionally pencils. This time I drew Mariah Carey. My favorite singer, admired the talent in childhood. I love her voice. Draw it gave me a lot of pleasure the more that I had such a long break in the drawing.

Mariah Carey was born March 27, 1970, in Huntington, Long Island, New York, and began taking voice lessons at age four. At 18 she signed with Columbia records, and her first album had four No. 1 singles, including "Vision of Love" and "I Don't Wanna Cry." She went on to produce several more albums (later with other studios) and top singles, and is one of the best-selling female artists of all time.

Early Life

Singer Mariah Carey was born March 27, 1970, in Huntington, Long Island, New York, to Alfred Roy Carey, a Venezuelan aeronautical engineer; and Patricia Carey, a voice coach and opera singer. Has two older siblings: a brother, Morgan, and a sister, Alison. Carey is known as one of the top "pop divas" of the 1990s, having sold more than 80 million albums worldwide. Her voice spans more than five octaves and she writes most of her own music.

Early Music Career

When she was 18 years old, Carey and her friend, singer Brenda K. Starr, went to a party hosted by CBS Records. Starr convinced Carey to bring along one of her demo tapes. She intended to give the tape to Columbia's Jerry Greenberg, but Tommy Mottola, the president of Columbia Records (later Sony), intercepted it before she could hand it to Greenberg. After listening to the tape on the way home from the party, Mottola signed Carey immediately and set her to work on her first album, Mariah Carey (1990) which included four No. 1 singles: "Vision of Love," "Love Takes Time," "Some Day," and "I Don't Wanna Cry." Her second album Emotions was released in 1992; the title track became her fifth No. 1 single, and included hits "Can't Let Go" and "Make it Happen."

Success on the Pop Charts

In March 1992, Carey appeared on MTV's Unplugged. This performance was released as an album and a home video, resulting in another No. 1 single (a cover of The Jacksons' "I'll Be There"). Her next album Music Box (1993) cut back a bit on the lavish studio production techniques heard in her previous albums, and included the No. 1 singles, "Dreamlover" and "Hero." Her November 1994 release Merry Christmas combined traditional Christian hymns with new songs. In 1995 she released Daydream; the first single "Fantasy" debuted at No. 1. It also included collaborations with R&B and hip-hop artists, such as Wu-Tang Clan and Boyz II Men ("One Sweet Day").

In Recent Years

In 2012, Carey was chosen as a new judge for season 12 of the popular FOX television show American Idol, taking a seat alongside Randy Jackson, Nicki Minaj and Keith Urban.

Carey has sold around 160 million albums worldwide. She is the third best-selling female artist of all time, according to the Recording Industry Association of America. With 2008’s Touch My Body (from her eleventh studio album E=MC²), Carey passed Elvis Presley to become second only to the Beatles for the most No. 1 hit singles in the United States.

Outside of her music career, Carey is active in fundraising for The Fresh Air Fund, an independent nonprofit agency that has provided free summer vacations to more than 1.6 million disadvantaged New York City children since 1877.

In January 2015, Carey inked a deal to become the latest diva songstress to take up residency in Las Vegas beginning in May.

Firstly, I think, that every even the seemingly simple thing can turn out to be the excellent subject for creating unusual work. It will be sufficient only to learn to observe world surrounding us and to draw pleasure from this observation. It is necessary also to have an internal sensitivity. Of course mechanical abilities are still reaching. I think that it is the excellent means of achieving one's aims in every field of art.

Secondly, To be a real artist all the time. Really good fit Ludvig van Beeethoven words here
"The real artist doesn't have pride. He can see that the art knows no bounds, feels, very much being distant from one's destination, and while other they are admiring him, he alone is worrying over the fact that he didn't reach still this point which is appearing for him in the distance, as the light of the sun."

Thirdly and last can become an art everything what is surrounding us. Everything depends only on us alone and of our attitude towards World.............
