Billie Jean

Oil on wood panel, 16 x 16, 2019.

I painted this portrait of Billie Jean King from the infamous photo of her with Bobby Riggs after their "battle of the sexes" match. In the photo he has a controlling grip on her arm. I chose to remove that. I donated it to my tennis club where it adorns the walls of the Women's Locker Room. Its perfect.
