This was part of a 4-painting series where I wanted to focus on the biker gang girlfriends. I was reading a bit in Danny Lyons' book "The Bikeriders", where many bikers in their candor referred to their girlfriends as their "Old Lady", kind of like calling your dad "Pops". I just thought it was kinda funny, and something I latched onto, but it drew me to want to do a series on them, draw some women that were just as dangerous and perhaps equally as respected as the guys in the group. I was never really that crazy about how women were generally depicted in illustrations and films back then, they were always weak, one-dimensional characters that needed saving -- the "damsel in distress" cliche -- which I always thought was just weak writing. One of the paintings from the series was sold at benefit auction a couple years ago, and the woman who bought it told me her daughter said it scared her a little bit, but the mother loved it so much she gave me one of my highest compliments,"I like it, I feel like it really brings out my inner-badass!" Haha, I always loved that!
