Nina Poses a Second Challenge

7 monthes ago   |   By Chicks with Balls by Judy Takács

At 40, Nina's got it Covered by Judy Takács Above is my second Chicks with Balls painting of Nina, which will be included in the upcoming show at Cuyahoga County Community College Gallery East, which opens October 29th from 6:00 to 8:30. You may recognize her because, back in 2013, she was my poster woman for Chicks with Balls .
Nina is Grace under Fire by Judy Takács
Sometime in 2014, Nina told me she wanted to pose a second time.
We talked about painting her tattoo this time with possibly more flesh showing... and maybe without balls at all...she had the “balls” to pose without using any...

Leah's Encore by Judy Takács
You may remember my original Chicks portrait of Leah, who Runs, Bikes, Swims and Tackles...Paul.
So, if I already painted her, why did I paint her again?
Short answer; the first portrait was bugging me and I had to do it!
Leah Runs, Bikes, Swims and Tackles...Paul by Judy Takács But, if you've been reading my blog, you may already know that I don't give short answers. So, here's the longer one.
Leah is sultry, sassy and gorgeous AND hysterically funny too...think Amy Schumer, only she's hanging out with you, and not Jennifer Lawrence .
After laughing with her...

Boxing with Sandy

Boxing with Sandy

Sandy the quilt-maker pulls no punches by Judy Takács I offered Sandy some ball choices.
I also warned her that she needed to hold her gloves closer to her body if she wanted the coverage the balls she refused might have afforded.
Sandy felt it was more important to demonstrate correct boxing posture...even if it meant a possible nipple sighting. It was purely coincidental that the large central pose I liked best showed no breasts...Sandy would have been okay with it either way.
I'm not surprised though, Sandy isn't one to be squeamish about her body when it comes to creative endeavors...

Becoming Shannon

Becoming Shannon

Becoming Shannon by Judy Takács Not fitting where you've been put might kill you or force you to build the wings you need to fly.
In many ways, for Shannon it did both.
Shannon is a sweet, funny, beautiful, chatty, passionate, bold, truthful, realistic, candid and outspoken woman. She has a dramatic way about her, loves jewelry with all its symbolic qualities, and she's an incredibly talented artist and illustrator.
And she's fun as hell.
Though we only met once before, we spent the better part of a very fun snowy Pennsylvania day together in the makeshift art studio of my Holiday Inn...

Judy, Judy, Judy

Judy, Judy, Judy

Judy, Judy, Judy...a detail
People have been saying “Judy, Judy, Judy” to me my whole life.
Legend has it, Cary Grant said it first to Rita Hayworth playing a Judith in “Only Angels Have Wings.” But, according to Peter Bogdanovich , Cary only said things like “Hello Judy. Come on, Judy,” and “Now, Judy.” For some reason though, it went down in cinema history as three reps of “Judy”, and I haven't contested it. I actually kinda like it. People remember my name that way...if nothing else.
So, with every new crop of chicks I paint, I put forth another self-portrait. And each new self-portrait...
