The Pianist

The Pianist, 10 x 8, oil on board

It’s been a while since I’ve created a small painting based on a Vintage Game Card.  This card is from a game called Who’s the Thief?

I like to paint these cards in groups of 3 with a similar theme. This is the third card in my Music trilogy. The other two are Tutor and The Singer

The Singer Vintage Card by K Henderson

This is the second of three in my Music themed Vintage Card trompe l’oeil paintings.

My Contemporary Realism still life paintings tend to be complicated with lots of ‘stuff’ in them. With these vintage card paintings, my goal is to keep them simple and add nothing outside the card. I broke my rule by adding a scrap of sheet music.

The Case of the Sulky Girl

The Case of the Sulky Girl by K Henderson
The Case of the Sulky Girl, 24 x 18, oil on linen

The Case of the Sulky Girl is  Erle Stanley Gardner’s second Perry Mason novel. It was written in 1933.

I loved painting the packing tape on this painting. And if you look close on the painting you will see that all the Plain Brown Wrapper packages are addressed to fictitious detectives. This one is address to Miles Archer, Sam Spade’s partner. (Sorry, you can’t see it is this detail)

Cherry Turnover

Cherry Turnover by K Henderson
Cherry Turnover, oil on canvas, 18 x 24

I love to paint pastry. I love to eat pastry. A marriage made in heaven.

The flaky pastry and the red cherries provide the perfect contrast against the antique bone china and the linen napkin.

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.

My first offering is The Dentist 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.

Detective World

Detective World by K Henderson
Detective World, 24 x 18, oil on linen

If you follow my artwork, you know that I collect Stuff to use as subjects for my paintings. I love ‘Hardboiled’ Detective pulp fiction and magazines. I love the men of action, femme fatales and witty dialogue. And the covers could be quite titillating. As I was planning a painting featuring a 1940’s Detective Magazine I remembered the days when Risque publications were sent in Plain Brown Wrappers (are they still sent that way?) Ah! A new painting series is born.

This is the first in my Plain Brown Wrappers series. This Detective World from 1947 peeks out of the torn brown paper tied up in string.

The Case of the Drowning Duck

The Case of The Drowning Duck

The Case of the Drowning Duck, 24 x 18, oil on linen

The Case of the Drowning Duck was written by Erle Stanley Gardner in 1942. I love the title of the book. It’s about “a chemist who drowns ducks and becomes a murder suspect.”.

The Book Cover Woman looks like she’s trying to claw he way out of her Plain Brown Wrapper.
