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.

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.

What can be more romantic than valentines, candy and hearts? And who is among the most famous romantic couples? The Man of Steel and Lois Lane of course!

This Trompe L’oeil painting has Valentines of Superman and Lois Lane from the 1940’s and ’50’s. I’ve combined them with a heart shaped sucker with cellophane, a red ribbon, red hearts and a silver heart reflecting the blue sky

Dark Kiss by K Henderson
Dark Kiss, 20 x 20, Oil on linen

I’ve painting chocolate kisses several times. I’m not sure why because the colorful foil is one of the most challenging things I’ve ever painted. But I’m pleased with the way this turned out.
