In the Wind

August 26, 2015

In The Wind by K Henderson

In The Wind, oil on cradled board, 20 x 16

This is a Trompe L’oeil painting. Trompe-l’œil (French for “deceive the eye”, pronounced [tʁɔ̃p lœj]) is an art technique that uses realistic imagery to create the optical illusion that the depicted objects exist in three dimensions.

The ‘frame’, (not a real frame but painted onto the board) encircles a photo of an early aviatrix, an airmail envelope, parts from aviation games and more.

This painting will be included in the Traveling the West art show in Dallas later this year. More info to come about this show. Stay tuned.

The Adventures of Pinocchio written by Carlo Collodi 1883 is one of the creepiest children’s stories I’ve ever read. I love it!

Go Fish by K HendersonGo Fish, 10 x 8, oil on board

I was digging through my card games with the intention of painting a Superman Card Box when I came across this great, vintage 1951 Go Fish game. I love the wear and tear on this box and the happy face of the fish.
