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.

Aces and Eightsby K Henderson

Aces and Eights,12 x 9, oil on board.

Aces and Eights is known as the Dead Man’s Hand in a two-pair poker hand. The hand gets its name from the legend of it being the five-card-draw hand held by Wild Bill Hickok at the time of his murder (August 2, 1876). It is accepted that the hand included the aces and eights of both the black suits. There is still debate about what the 5th card was.
