Buck Rogers Crayon Ship

Buck Rogers Crayon Shipdetail
Buck Rogers Crayon Ship, 24 x 18, oil on cradled board, detail

This is a detail of my painting  Buck Rogers Crayon Ship. The painting will be shown at CK Contemporary Gallery. Show opens May 16

This is “school crayon” No. 019 made by American Pencil Company New York in 1936.  One side of the box depicts Buck and Wilma looking through a porthole . The opposite side depicts “Buck Rogers Crayon Ship” with die-cut square on right where pencils are visible and completes the ship design. The box contains six  multi-colored pencils.

The ‘chalk drawings’ (yes, these are painted with oil paint) are also based on the graphics from this box.

Old Crow DETAIL

Old Crow,oil on cradled board, 9 x 12

 This is a detail of my painting  Old Crow. The painting will be shown at CK Contemporary Gallery. Show opens May 16

This tin wind up toy represents one of the crows from the 1941 Disney animated film Dumbo.The toy was produced eight years after the film’s release to correspond with its 1949 re-release. It was produced in Japan, but under the Marx Toys.

This vintage toy is one of my favorites and has a place of honor on my desk next to my easel.

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!

Strawberry Shortcake by K Henderson

Strawberry Shortcake by K Henderson

Strawberry Shortcake, 36 x 36, oil on linen

This is my belated Annual Strawberry Painting. I began this painting 2 months ago but put it aside several times due to other obligations.

I must say that the strawberries were the easiest part of the painting to complete. The whipped cream with all its ebb and flow and the biscuit with  its nooks and crannies were time consuming to get Just Right.

Orbit Game by K Henderson
Orbit, 20 x 30, oil on linen

Here’s my latest Trompe L’oeil painting in my Vintage Board Game series. This game was manufactured by Parker Brothers in 1959.

My Orbit game is in pretty good shape. Fortunately, I have 2 very beat up Monopoly games that I used for inspiration for the tape, dents and dings.
