Super Valentine, 12 x 9, oil on board

What can be more romantic than valentines, candy and hearts? And who is among the most famous romantic couples? The Man of Steel and Lois Lane of course!

This Trompe L’oeil painting has Valentines of Superman and Lois Lane from the 1940’s and ’50’s. I’ve combined them with a heart shaped sucker with cellophane, a red ribbon, red hearts and a silver heart reflecting the blue sky

Air Mail, 24 x 20, oil on cradled board

This is another painting in my Flight series. I have a fondness for well played with vintage toys. This airplane has almost all of the paint worn off as well as a missing propeller.

The Trompe L’Oeil painting also has a torn pulp magazine cover, an airmail letter dated 1946, and airmail stamps.

I am pleased to say that my newest gallery, Huckleberry Fine Art Gallery, has sold my Contemporary Realism painting Games

I like the geometrical design of rectangles and squares stacked on top of each other with a few little ‘surprises’  in this Trompe l’oeil painting

You’ll recognize vintage games of Cootie, Rook, Monopoly, old maid and others.

Red and Green – Candy Cane Painting by K Henderson

Red and Green, 30 x 40, oil on linen

I had a great time painting this photorealism still life. The striped background with the red and green striped candy and glass atlas jars along with their reflections was a wonderful challenge. I’m pleased with the results.
