It's Always 6 O'clock~Oil Painting by K Henderson

"It's Always 6 O'clock" is oil on canvas, 24 x 30.

I'm a BIG fan of Alice's Adventures in Wonderland. I have over 300 copies of that book with many different illustrators.
I've been wanting to do a painting based on the book for quite some time. A Mad Tea Party is my favorite chapter  so that is what inspired this still life. "It's Always 6 O'clock" is oil on canvas, 24 x 30.
I've used this battenburg lace in several of my paintings and I think I'm finally figuring out how to paint it

The Flyers~Oil Painting by K Henderson

The Flyers, 12 x 12, oil on canvas

I love old books! I buy them at library book sales, thrift stores, get them as gifts or pick then up where ever I can find them. I love them in pristine condition or old and torn. This book, The Flyers by George Barr McCutcheon, was published in 1907 and was read by many at the Muskogee, OK, Public Library before it was retired and purchased by me about 23years ago.

Don't you love the little portrait on the cover? It's a separate print pasted to the blue, embossed cloth cover.
