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.

PB and J #2

PB&J #2

PB&J #2, oil on linen, 24 x 36

In a recent survey when asked about Peanut Butter and Jelly preferences 36 % say strawberry jam is favorite (grape is 31%); favorite bread is white bread (54%); favorite type of peanut butter is smooth (56%) and a whopping 80 % like their PB & J with the crust left on the sandwich.


This painting reflects 3 out of 4 of the top choices. I’m fond of Apricot jam, wheat bread, Crunchy (!!!) and crust on. How about you?

Grand Adventure

Grand Adventure by K Henderson

Grand Adventure, 36 x 36, oil on linen

This painting composition created itself. I have been wanting to use some of my vintage suitcases in a painting for quite some time but couldn’t get excited about any of the ideas I was coming up with.

I had these three cases stacked on a table and one morning I just happen to glance at them while the sun was coming up and shining through the window. The sun created the perfect light and dark contrast, the background looked to be a dark sienna. I grabbed my camera and quickly took several reference photos.

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.
