Pink Betty by K Henderson

Pink Betty, 20 x 16, oil on cradled board

I love doing commissioned paintings that included old photos and memorabilia. The painting creates a very personal image of loved ones.

 

This photo used for this painting includes a Mother and daughter, a child’s drawing and a hand crocheted doily.

Aces and Eightsby K Henderson

Aces and Eights,12 x 9, oil on board.

Aces and Eights is known as the Dead Man’s Hand in a two-pair poker hand. The hand gets its name from the legend of it being the five-card-draw hand held by Wild Bill Hickok at the time of his murder (August 2, 1876). It is accepted that the hand included the aces and eights of both the black suits. There is still debate about what the 5th card was.
