Singing Cat~Oil Painting by K Henderson


Singing Cat, 24 x 18, oil on cradled board

I love these vintage boxes of 'School Crayons'. I wish I could find more of them.

Felix the Cat sings along as a young boy plays the pipe organ. The box has seen better days but the cat keeps singing.

Space - O, oil on linen, 30 x 24

Here's another painting of a Vintage 'School Crayon' box.  The boy and girl are in a Flying Saucer against a red background. These space age artists have done a great job coloring inside the lines (mostly) Available

Fireman~Oil Painting by K Henderson



Fireman, 10 x 8, oil on board
I had extra fun with this Trompe L'oeil. This vintage card depicts Fireman Damper Downe. It's from an Old Maid deck.
Looks like he has gotten a little close to the fire yet his bunker gear remains nice, bright and clean.

The Dentist~Oil Painting by K Henderson



The Dentist, oil on board, 10 x 8

Welcome to my Game Card Series of paintings. These are small, fun trompe l'oeil oil paintings of  cards from vintage games.

My first offering is The Dentist from the 1938 game 'Who is the Thief'.

Note: No vintage card was harmed in the making of this painting. I scan my cards and print them on card stock. I them take the print and rip, smudge, stomp and tape to give them the Character that I want.

Fortune Telling Cat~Oil Painting by K Henderson

Fortune Telling Cat, 24 x 30, oil on canvas

Who can resist a cat that can tell the future? I really like these vintage fortune telling cards because they look like they were hand painted.

The Black Cat is against a green background, winking as though he holds all your secrets in his hand.

The transparent tape keeps the box together

Buck Rogers Crayon Ship~Oil Painting by K Henderson


Buck Rogers Crayon Ship, 24 x 18, oil on cradled board

I enjoyed painting my Felix the Cat pencil box so much that I went looking for more pencil boxes. Buck Rogers Crayon Ship caught my eye because of the bright colors and, well, it's really cool!

I'll be creating another painting using this box because it has great graphics on the back, too. The 'chalk drawings' (yes, these are painted with oil paint) are also based on the graphics from this box.
