The Lone Ranger is a true American Icon. He made his first appearance in 1933 as a radio character and has been going strong ever since in books, comics, television, movies and more.

This Contemporary Realism Oil Painting includes a game from 1938 and comics from 1948 as well as a vintage cap pistol.

I love my vintage toy collection. The tin wind up toys are my favorite (this week) They are small and have a lot of character.

I really enjoyed painting the dog. He is a lead dog with black paint. The paint had fallen off in many places. The challenge was painting a series of little abstract shapes to create the whole image.

I haven’t created one of my Vintage Playing Card paintings in a while and when I found this “Little Feather” character I knew he would be perfect for a Cowboy and Indian painting. Dastardly Bad Bill Bunion is a good counterpart for the young brave.

This is another oil painting in my Vintage Game Series. The Box is from the 1965  ‘Superman Game, Superman’s Deadliest  Enemy’. Looks like Superman is getting ready to do battle with Lex Luthor.

The game board in the background is from the 1954 game ‘Calling Superman’.

I love to paint pastry. I love to eat pastry. A marriage made in heaven.

The flaky pastry and the red cherries provide the perfect contrast against the antique bone china and the linen napkin.

America, Motherhood and Apple Pieby K Henderson
America, Motherhood and Apple Pie, 36 x 30, oil on cradled board

This Trompe L’Oeil is a bit of a departure for me but so much fun! This homage to mothers, Independence Day and Old Glory has the Stars and Stripes created by Betsy Ross, the Mother of our flag. Also included are poster images of Mom as she was depicted during the first half of last century and little Apple Pies. Its completed with star shaped cookies just like mom used to make. Yum!
