Chocolate Fund by K Henderson

Chocolate Fund, 24 x 18, oil on cradled board

While doing research on WWII propaganda posters I came across this poster for the American Chocolate Fund. I knew it HAD to be included in a painting.

The American Chocolate fund’s goal was to send 1000 pounds of chocolate EACH WEEK(!) to the American Expeditionary Forces in France. Wow!

This Trompe L’oeil includes the poster along with a Hershey’s Chocolate Bar in a World War II era wrapper.

It was Neither More Nor Less Than a Pig

It Was Neither More nor Less than a Pig by K Henderson

It was Neither More Nor Less Than a Pig, 18 x 24, oil on cradled board

 The title comes from a line in Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland.

The white porcelain was more of a challenge than I thought it would be. And the chocolate pig is living in my freezer. I don’t have the heart to eat him after he put in such hard work as a model.

Licorice by K Henderson

Licorice Allsorts, oil on cradled board, 16 x 20

I love licorice! Any kind, any where, any time. Allsorts is my favorite. Not only is it tasty but it’s also beautiful. It’s truly Eye Candy.

I enjoyed painting the glass lid. The abstract shapes of the reflections and highlights made it a real challenge.

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.
