After spending most of the pandemic painting Buddhas I felt I needed a major shift in my choice of what to paint, so that I didn't fall into a repetive rut. It struck me that it would be intersting to paint female weight lifters, both because the challenge of painting bodies again interested me and because the idea went so against the traditional ways that women had been represented in art; Madonna's, goddesses, someone's wife or daughter or sister, or erotically. Instead why not show women as strong and powerful, fierce and even a little sweaty.
