History was made at the London Olympics in 2012 when women fought for the gold in women's boxing. The matches didn't disappoint - terrific rounds of boxing were viewed across the globe. Gloria Peek, the U.S. coach stated to the N.Y. Times that “The fact is a woman’s inner strength makes this sport perfect for them. Women don’t crumble easy. They come back again and again.”
This painting is a homage to those female athletes whose strength, dedication and intention make them alluring subject for my work.
