The Letter, oil on cradled board, 12 x 12

Someone asked to create a “Civil War” themed painting. This Trompe L’oeil is the results.

The background: During the Civil War J W Sword published a newspaper for the confederacy. As his paper supply ran out, he stripped the wallpaper from his home and printed the news on the back of the paper.

The letter shows a confederate cancellation stamp and is addressed to Richmond.

The glasses and pocket watch are typical of the period. The watch belonged to my Great-Great Grandfather

With a Cherry on Top, 10 x 8, oil on board

I wanted to create a fairly simple painting and so I chose another Chocolate Tart image. Who can resist chocolate with whipped cream and a cherry on top?

I’m not sure which gallery or show I will be sending this to so for the time being you can contact me directly for purchase

Happy Valentines Day!

Cordial Cherry, 9 x 12, oil on board, framed

Happy Valentines Day!

Who doesn’t like to get chocolates for valentines day? And this one has no calories and will last forever.

A sweet red cherry and sticky cordial cream covered by smooth milk chocolate. I don’t know if I wanted to simply capture the beauty of the cordial cherry or if I was just looking for an excuse to buy myself a box of chocolates! Yum!

Baked Goods by K Henderson

February 7, 2012

Baked Goods, 24 x 30, oil on linen I had a request from a collector to create a painting using this vintage “Baked Goods” box. It was hard to decide which kind of pastry to include since all pastry is wonderful. I decided on Berliners (bismarcks, jelly donuts, Paczki, what do you call them?) I also included a favorite knife and linen napkin. Do you have a favorite object you would like to have immortalized in a painting? Let me know. Commissions are considered. See more on
