PB and J #2

November 26, 2014

PB&J #2

PB&J #2, oil on linen, 24 x 36

In a recent survey when asked about Peanut Butter and Jelly preferences 36 % say strawberry jam is favorite (grape is 31%); favorite bread is white bread (54%); favorite type of peanut butter is smooth (56%) and a whopping 80 % like their PB & J with the crust left on the sandwich.

 

This painting reflects 3 out of 4 of the top choices. I’m fond of Apricot jam, wheat bread, Crunchy (!!!) and crust on. How about you?

Deja Vu All Over Again

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.

Strawberry Shortcake by K Henderson

Strawberry Shortcake by K Henderson

Strawberry Shortcake, 36 x 36, oil on linen

This is my belated Annual Strawberry Painting. I began this painting 2 months ago but put it aside several times due to other obligations.

I must say that the strawberries were the easiest part of the painting to complete. The whipped cream with all its ebb and flow and the biscuit with  its nooks and crannies were time consuming to get Just Right.

I don’t know if I wanted to simply capture the beauty of the cordial cherry or if I was just looking for an excuse to buy myself a box of chocolates! Yum!
