Dark Kiss by K Henderson
Dark Kiss, 20 x 20, Oil on linen

I’ve painting chocolate kisses several times. I’m not sure why because the colorful foil is one of the most challenging things I’ve ever painted. But I’m pleased with the way this turned out.

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?

Strawberry Delight – Oil Painting

Strawberry Delightby K Henderson

Strawberry Delight , oil on masonite, 11″ x 14″.

This painting  shows strawberries in a cut glass dish, on a piece of battenburg lace.

For such a small painting, it was really a challenge.  I like painting glass and I really had to keep focused to get all the geometric shapes just right.

Forever Brave – Oil Painting

September 6, 2015

Forever Brave by K Henderson

Forever Brave, 12 x 9, oil on board

This little guy is one of my favorite vintage  ceramic figures . He’s a little warrior with a tomahawk.

He is standing in front of a wool blanket. Can you tell that I love the color Red?

As I’ve said before, I love painting the different textures. The roughness of the wool, the shiny hardest of the ceramic and the satin reflections on the table all come together to make a nice contrast

Ride ’em Cowboys

Ride Em Cowboy by K Henderson

Ride ‘em Cowboys’18″ x 24″, oil on canvas.

This is a painting painting in my Western Still life series which features vintage western figures. The background is a silk scarf with a cowboy and horse. Yee Haw! The figurines are two ceramic cowboys, their horses and cactus on a American Indian motif rug.

I have a nice collection of Cowboy and Indian figurines and I just can’t paint them fast enough. They call to me “Paint me. Paint me”. I’m so excited about this series of paintings. They make me smile while I’m painting. What more can I ask for?

I LOVE painting the different textures and the way light bounces off the different objects.
