A Perfect Mason by K Henderson

A Perfect Mason by K Henderson

A Perfect Mason, 30″ x 30″, oil on canvas

 I’ve painted several small Coca Cola paintings this year and decided to create a larger Coke painting. My vintage Coke Bottle is joined by an Atlas Mason and a Ball Perfect Mason jar.

Yikes! This painting was a lot more time consuming than I thought it would be. The raised letters on each of the bottles required shadows and highlights on each of them.

The patina on the Zinc lid  added a contrast to the colorful shiny glass.

No Man’s Girl – Cowgirls!

No Man's girl

No Man’s Girl ,oil on canvas, 30″ x 40″

 You gotta love Cowgirls! The title comes from the pulp fiction book cover in the background. Red is my favorite color and this painting has plenty of it!

The painting includes vintage ceramic cowgirls, a dog (or is it a coyote?) cactus, a six-shooter and an Indian blanket to keep the cowgirl warm at night.

Ball Jar and Marbles Revisited

Ball Jar and Marbles, 9 x 12, oil on board

The great thing about oil paintings is that you can make changes. I like that. This painting has been to shows and even won awards but I was never completely satisfied with it.

I recently returned the painting to the easel and reworked several of the marbles and the shadows. The changes are not drastic and I’m probably the only one who will notice but I like the painting better.
