G.I. Joe: America’s Movable Fighting Man

October 30, 2014
GI Joe by K Henderson
GI Joe, 24 x 12, oil on cradled board

I was asked to paint a GI Joe themed painting in the same style as my Vintage Games series. GI Joe first appeared in 1964 and was sold in a “lidded box with dynamic graphics that illustrated the specific branch of the military offered”. Read about the history of the doll and the packaging on this website http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/G.I._Joe:_America’s_Movable_Fighting_Man

This painting will be included in the Wild Bunch Art Show at Lovetts Gallery , 6528 E. 51st ST, Tulsa, OK 74145 in the Farm Shopping Center beginning  November 8, 2014 10am – 5pm.

Wild Bunch-1

November 1988 I married my Hubby in Muskogee OK. Our honeymoon? We spent it at an art show in Tulsa, OK.

Fast forward to Nov 2014. How are we spending our anniversary? We’ll be at an art show in Tulsa, OK

Join us at Lovetts Gallery , 6528 E. 51st ST, Tulsa, OK 74145 in the Farm Shopping Center on November 8, 2014 10am – 5pm.

The show, “The Wild Bunch”,  features me, Paul Rhymer  and Robert Caldwell. The 3 of us will be at the gallery creating our artwork.

Stay tuned. Over the next few weeks I will be posting images of paintings I will be taking to the show.

 

Peanut Butter and Jelly

Peanut Butter and Jelly by K Henderson

Peanut Butter and Jelly, 30 x 40, oil on linen

Peanut Butter and Jelly sandwiches are among my top three favorite foods (the other 2 are ice cream and pizza)

Not only are these sandwiches delicious, they are also beautiful. The texture of the bread, the smoothness of the peanut butter and the shine and luminosity of the jelly all combine to create a feast for the eyes.
