HEATH LEDGER – Amazing Last Portrait Painted of Actor Becomes Shrine!
In New Zealand, an art gallery is featuring the last portrait painted of Heath Ledger. The artist is Vincent Fantauzzo, who began sketching his friend Heath Ledger fo an Archibald portrait competition, he had no idea it would become an unofficial shrine to the young actor.
When Ledger died in January, Fantauzzo considered withdrawing the portrait from the competition, but was convinced by the late actor’s mother to enter it. Numerous buyers have contacted Fantauzzo wanting to buy the painting. He has been offered “hundreds of thousands” of dollars, but will honour his promise to give the painting to Ledger’s mother, Sally.
The painting is absolutely gorgeous and captures the true spirit of the brilliant actor. Happy Birthday Heath Ledger! You are missed by many.
