Sylvia Sleigh for this week's inspiration.
"Feminist artist Sleigh is best known for her paintings of women, and for reversing stereotypes of women by putting men in poses and positions which traditionally depicted women. Sleigh said of her work, "To me, women were often portrayed as sex objects in humiliating poses. I wanted to give my perspective. I liked to portray both man and woman as intelligent and thoughtful people with dignity and humanism that emphasized love and joy."
