The Mouse

The Mouse detail

The Mouse, 24″ x 24″, oil on canvas

 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?

Batman Puzzle

Batman Puzzle DetailBatman Puzzle, 36 x 30, oil on linen, detail

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

Basic puzzle:  pieces are intended to be put together in a logical way in order to come up with the desired solution.

British engraver and mapmaker, John Spilsbury, created the first jigsaw puzzle in 1700 when he mounted a map on a sheet of wood which he then sawed around each individual country.  Spilsbury used his product to aid in teaching geography.

My Batman Puzzle was manufactured by Milton Bradley in 1966.

The Batman Cookies (also a puzzle since they are pieces put together in a logical way) were baked by me last week.

Robot Sam The Answer Man, 36 x 30, oil on linen

Here’s my most recent Vintage Game oil painting. Robot Sam is an electric quiz game made by Jacmar Mfg. Company in 1954. It’s a battery operated game with question and answer cards. You touch a wired probe to the question and try to match the answer using the second probe . If you answer correctly a small light glows.

This yellow and red box with the image of a happy robot has taped corners.

The Game of Cootie

The Game of Cootie by K Henderson

The Game of Cootie, 20 x 16, oil on cradled board

This children’s game was created by William Schaper in 1948 and sold millions in its first years. The object of the original game is to be the first player to build a “cootie” piece by piece. Body parts are acquired with a roll of the die.

The game has changed manufactures over the years but can still be purchased today.

This painting, based on a game in my personal collection, shows the original Cootie box.

GI Joe by K Henderson
GI Joe, 24 x 12, oil on cradled board

I was asked to paint a GI Joe themed painting in the same style as my Vintage Games series. GI Joe first appeared in 1964 and was sold in a “lidded box with dynamic graphics that illustrated the specific branch of the military offered”. Read about the history of the doll and the packaging on this website http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/G.I._Joe:_America’s_Movable_Fighting_Man

This painting will be included in the Wild Bunch Art Show at Lovetts Gallery , 6528 E. 51st ST, Tulsa, OK 74145 in the Farm Shopping Center beginning  November 8, 2014 10am – 5pm.

Rubens Crayola No. 18 by K Henderson

Rubens Crayola by K Henderson
Rubens Crayola No. 18, 18 x 24, oil on cradled board

I have a few boxes of Rubens Crayola and this one is the oldest. Although I don’t know the exact date of this box, the Rubens No. 18 (my box only has 17 crayolas) first came out in 1905.

The Rubens Crayola line, started in 1903 was directly targeted at artists and designed to compete with the Raphael brand of crayons from Europe.

I love the picture of Peter Paul Rubens and the filigree. The paper wrap on each crayon also has the word ‘Rubens’ and the face of  Ruben although he is facing towards the right instead of the left as on the box. These vintage crayons are over 100 years old and  in great shape.
