Strawberry Delight – oil painting

May 22, 2009

Strawberry Delight

Strawberry Delight is oil on masonite, 11″ x 14″. It shows strawberries in a cut glass dish, on a piece of battenburg lace.

For such a small painting, it was really a challenge. This is my first painting of cut glass. I like painting glass and I really had to keep focused to get all the geometric shapes just right.

This painting has been shown at the Oil Painters of America and the International Guild of Realism exhibits. It is slated to go to the National Society of Artists show later this month unless I sell it first.

It is available at my studio, K. Henderson Art

Grapes

I’ve been traveling to art shows lately so I’ve neglected this blog. Shame on me.

This painting is titled Grapes (ooo, how original! LOL) It is 14″ x 11″ , oil on masonite. I love the way the glass distorts the view of the grapes. You can see a larger image of this painting on myK. Henderson Fine Art Oils website. This is available for purchase
