It was Neither More Nor Less Than a Pig

July 22, 2016

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.

Baked Goods

Baked Goods, 24 x 30, oil on linen

 I love this vintage Bakery box. I who doesn’t love pastries?

It was hard to decide which kind of pastry to include since all pastry is wonderful. I decided on Berliners (bismarcks, jelly donuts, Pączki, what do you call them?) I also included a favorite knife and linen napkin.

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?

Buck Rogers Crayon Ship

Buck Rogers Crayon Ship, 24 x 18, oil on cradled board

I enjoyed painting my Felix the Cat pencil box so much that I went looking for more pencil boxes. Buck Rogers Crayon Ship caught my eye because of the bright colors and, well, it’s really cool!

I’ll be creating another painting using this box because it has great graphics on the back, too. The ‘chalk drawings’ (yes, these are painted with oil paint) are also based on the graphics from this box.

The Dentist

The Dentist, oil on board, 10 x 8

Welcome to my Vintage Card Game Series of paintings. These are small, fun trompe l’oeil oil paintings of  cards from vintage games.

The Dentist is from the 1938 game ‘Who is the Thief’.

Note: No vintage card was harmed in the making of this painting. I scan my cards and print them on card stock. I them take the print and rip, smudge, stomp and tape to give them the Character that I want.

Fortune Telling Cat by K. Henderson

July 17, 2016
 
Fortune Telling Cat, 24 x 30, oil on canvas

Who can resist a cat that can tell the future? I really like these vintage fortune telling cards because they look like they were hand painted.

The Black Cat is against a green background, winking as though he holds all your secrets in his hand.

The transparent tape keeps the box together.
