A lunch of your choice and cupcakes are a StudioWorks birthday tradition for our artists.  It was Chimel Ford’s turn recently.  The lunch turned out great, but while the cupcakes were waiting on our kitchen counter…ants discovered them!  It’s a bit off-putting when the sprinkles start to move!  Good thing Chimel is a good sport and fortunately the ants hadn’t had the chance to set up shop.  Most of the cupcakes were unaffected and so it turned out alright in the end.  Chimel has been creating some wonderful works of late and so I will use this opportunity to share three recent paintings.  Happy Birthday Chimel and many more to you!

And a detail showing the painting’s surface…all three works presented in this post are acrylic on 14″ x 11″ canvases.

The staff really likes this painting.  At first I didn’t recognize Chimel’s source as being this old-fashioned candy.  Chimel is particularly good at matching colors and creating a compelling paint surface.  The candy’s name is its title.

I especially like the “Betty Boop” style figure of the little girl.  It’s so delightfully odd.  Chimel said the candy tastes pretty good too.

Chimel’s latest completed painting belongs to his pantheon of celebrities.  In closing, here is his version of Marilyn Monroe based from a well-known photograph of the late actress.
