The Faces We Wear by K Henderson

The Faces We Wear, 24 x 18, oil on cradled board

I got a vintage Pinocchio paper doll earlier this year and fell in love with the Long Nose Mask. I’ve been waiting for the opportunity to build a painting around it. Then when I found an Edwardian Era paper mask, the trompe l’oeil still life came together.

Also included in the still life is a Joker with a mask, a wooden Block (M is for mask), and a cover from Black Mask pulp magazine. The magazine also has a bottle of poison on it (covered by the ribbon)so I added a bottle to the mix. The ribbon? I just liked it and wanted to paint it.

The Faces We Wear, detail, work in progress

This is a small segment of a trompe l’oeil I’m working one. I thought I might finish it today but I see I have quite a way to go on it.

Pink Kiss – Chocolate Kiss

Pink Kiss, 20 x 20, oil on canvas

Here’s another Chocolate Kiss painting. This one was a bit of a challenge because I wanted the reflection to be less vibrant than the main subject and I struggled to get the color ‘Just Right’
