Aces and Eights by K Henderson


Aces and Eights,12 x 9, oil on board. 

Aces and Eights is known as the Dead Man's Hand in a two-pair poker hand. The hand gets its name from the legend of it being the five-card-draw hand held by Wild Bill Hickok at the time of his murder (August 2, 1876). It is accepted that the hand included the aces and eights of both the black suits. There is still debate about what the 5th card was.

 I don’t know if I wanted to simply capture the beauty of the cordial cherry or if I was just looking for an excuse to buy myself a box of chocolates! Yum!

Saturday Matinee by K Henderson


Saturday Matinee, 24 x 20, oil on canvas

Remember when movies cost a dime and the cowboy serials were all the rage? Ok, neither do I. But this painting Saturday Matinee brings those time back with a  Tom Mix poster, our favorite cowboy, Howdy Doody, a cowgirl sweetheart, American Indian, a horse and a six shooter. What more do you need?

Waitress - Vintage card by K Henderson

 
Waitress, 10 x 8, oil on board

This trompe l'oeil painting was inspired by a card from a vintage Old Maid game. I thought a coffee stain would enhanced the Waitress theme.
