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.

K. Henderson Celebrates National Puzzle Day

Batman Puzzle by K Henderson
Today is National Puzzle Day.

Basic puzzle:  pieces are intended to be put together in a logical way in order to come up with the desired solution.

British engraver and mapmaker, John Spilsbury, created the first jigsaw puzzle in 1700 when he mounted a map on a sheet of wood which he then sawed around each individual country.  Spilsbury used his product to aid in teaching geography.

My Batman Puzzle was manufactured by Milton Bradley in 1966.

The Batman Cookies (also a puzzle since they are pieces put together in a logical way) were baked by me last week.

Martini Splash by K Henderson

Martini Splash!, oil on cradled board, 18 x 24

This is the second in my Cocktail Series. I wanted to add some Action to the still life so I experimented with photographing olives dropping into a martini. What fun! I tested several different glasses and amounts of liquid. I used several photos to work from

This oil painting is the end result.
