Boom or Bust Game

October 5, 2015
Boom or Bust by K Henderson
Boom or Bust,  36 x 36, oil on linen
I love the graphics an colors of this game. Parker Brothers manufactured this financial game in 1951

Players move around the board according to the throw of the Dice. Properties such as beauty Shop, Department store, etc are bought and sold at prices that rise and fall quite unexpectedly, depending on whether the conditions are NORMAL, BOOM times or BUST (Depression times) The game is quick- moving and amusing. The game ends when all but one player becomes bankrupt.

 This is a detail of my painting  The Mouse. The painting will be shown at CK Contemporary Gallery. Show Opening May 16.

This Mickey Mouse card game was manufactured around 1946 and was included in a ‘six pack’ of other card games. The box measures 2.75″ x 1.875″.

I love the old yellowed tape and the beat up edges. Mickey Doesn’t mind. He just keeps on smiling. Did you know that Mickey Mouse had his 86th birthday in 2014?

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.

Superman will have to wait for another day.

Operation game – Work in Progress

Day 1

Operation, WIP, 30 x 40

I had a request to create a painting of the board game ‘Operation’.  I decided to post the images of the Work In Progress.

My first step, which I’m not showing, is the drawing on tracing paper. When I’m happy with the drawing I transfer the drawing to the canvas. Then I start blocking in the colors. I like to loosely block in the colors over the entire canvas so I can get a ‘feel’ for the painting and composition.

This is how the painting looks at the end of the first day.
