Red Globe II
Red Globe II, oil on linen, 30 x 30

Stripes and silver and red: My favorites! I’ve been working on this painting, off and on, for a while now and I’m pleased with the results.

The still life had a brass goblet which you don’t see. The gold reflections still remain in the bowl adding additional color and design.

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

Singer by K Henderson
The Singer, 10 x 8, oil on board

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 Adventures of Superman by K Henderson
The Adventures of Superman , 24 x 48, oil on linen

Superman’s first appearance was in Action Comics #1. Superman became popular very quickly. By 1940 the amount of merchandise available increased dramatically, with jigsaw puzzles, paper dolls, bubble gum and trading cards available, as well as wooden or metal figures.

This 1940 game by Milton Bradley  is the first and rarest of the early Superman board games, which was also offered as a premium in the Superman Bubble Gum Club prize folder. The box shows Superman stopping an oncoming airplane.

Buck Rogers Books

Buck Rogers Books by K Henderson
Buck Rogers Books, 36 x 30, oil on cradled board, detail

I love books. I collect books. I have lots of books. Oddly enough, I rarely have books in my paintings.

As a first step in remedying the situation I gathered up my Buck Rogers Big Little Books for this painting.

Buck Rogers first appeared in Phil Nowlan’s science fiction tale titled Armageddon—2419, published in Amazing Stories in August of 1928. The Big Little Books were published between 1933 – 1943.

Atomic Pistol by K Henderson
Atomic Pistol, 24 x 36, oil on linen

In February of 1934, after the Buck Rogers comic strip and radio show had developed a significant following and a strong market potential for Buck Rogers’ toys, Daisy introduced their first Buck Rogers gun, the XZ-31 Rocket Pistol followed in  1935 with the XZ-38 Disintegrator Pistol

After World War II, Daisy used the existing tools and dies from the Disintegrator Pistol to create the U-235 Atomic Pistol, this gun reflected the current fascination with atomic energy and was available with a blue finish, unfinished steel or gold.

Wonderful Cat

Wonderful Cat by K Henderson

Wonderful Cat, 18 x 24, oil on cradled board
 I came across this Felix the Cat Crayon Box  while engaged in my never ending search for vintage toys. The colors of the box and the pencils screamed out “Paint Me!” so I did. I don’t know if any of the pencils are original to the box but I don’t really care.

This Trompe  L’oeil shows a box of colored pencils manufactured by the American Lead Pencil Company. These were called School Crayon Boxes although these are obviously pencils. Felix the Cat is painting up a storm!

By the way, Felix is one old cat! He first appeared around 1919 and is still going strong!
